Week 5 of the college football season begins tonight with Validation Thursday in Boone Picken's Playground: Texas A&M (3-0) vs. No. 24 Okie State (3-0). In case you live under a rock, which if you do what do you pay in property tax?, the game starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be carried by the four lettered. This may be reason for me to use the DVR and delay watching 30 Rock.
Both teams got fat off Twinkie schedules. Both teams have big time runners in OSU's Kendall Hunter and A&M's Christine Michael. Both teams are looking to prove their records are for real. Both teams have coaches who are feeling some heat.
Both schools feature "pretty people" celebrities as alums; OSU has actor James Marsden and A&M features soap star Martha Madison. (Go with MM)
As much as A&M's Oline worries me, I'm going with Aggies D-coordinator Tim DeRuyter to hit the "kill switch" and for the Aggies defense to be able to make some positive plays.
Vegas has OSU favored by 3 points, but I say the Aggies win ... barely.
