Texas A&M vs. Arkansas is one of just two games in college football week four that will feature two ranked teams, though coincidentally they will both be played on neutral sites (the other being No. 12 Notre Dame vs. No. 18 Wisconsin at Chicago's Soldier Field)

Texas A&M and Arkansas are both members of the SEC West division, adding a little extra to what was already going to be an important game. Whoever comes out on top on Saturday will may have the best chance to thwart Alabama from heading back to another SEC Championship Game as the SEC West representative. But before either team can start thinking about that, they have to deal with one another.

While both teams are coming into the game undefeated, Texas A&M has been higher ranked to start the season, currently sitting at No. 7. That's right where they started the 2021 season in the AP poll. Even though there have been a handful of upsets ahead of them, they're stagnant position in the poles has to due mostly with their game against Colorado where they lost their starting quarterback Haynes King to injury and struggled for much of the game, squeaking out a win 10-7. King was given a recovery timeline of 4-7 weeks, per ESPN.

Replacing King is Zack Calzada, who after throwing the game-winning touchdown against Colorado followed that up with a three touchdown performance against New Mexico.

Any hiccups and growing pains from the offense have been offset by the great play by the defense, having only allowed 17 points thus far this season and none in the last seven quarters. That of course has a bit to do with opponent, but even the best teams don't often play seven straight quarters of shutout football. This game may come down to the Aggies' defense yet again, especially against the Arkansas running game.

The Razorbacks currently have the eighth best rushing attack in the country, averaging 282.3 yards per game on the ground. Five players currently have more than 100 yards rushing on the season, led by running back Trelon Smith (216 yards) and quarterback KJ Jefferson (180 yards), who also has added 632 yards and four touchdowns through the air.

Another big question will be whether the Arkansas defense will be able to rattle Calzada in a similar way that they did Texas quarterback Hudson Card? That helped Arkansas beat Texas 40-21, can they do so again against their other Texas rival?

Again, while it's a big game for both teams, this week marks the start of a gauntlet for Arkansas, as they go from playing Texas A&M to No. 2 Georgia, then No. 13 Ole Miss and finally No. 23 Auburn.

Texas A&M is currently a 5.5 point favorite.
