Texas A&M vs Nebraska Prediction: Aggies Beat Former Big 12 Rivals to Advance 

Just over a decade ago, Texas A&M and Nebraska shared conferences, and they’ll face off for the first time since going their separate ways this Friday in what should be a strong 8/9 matchup. Both schools held their own in two of the stronger leagues in the nation, and thrive on the offensive side of the ball, so it’s got the makings of a high-scoring clash. While the Over could be in play, the Aggies has the guard play to steal this contest, and I like leaning on that here in March. This could wind up being the game of the slate, so let’s trust Texas A&M in this clash of former Big 12 schools. In case Texas A&M makes it through, they will face Longwood or Houston in the next round.
