VEGAS ODDS:

  • PVAMU and A&M have never played each other in their 140 years of existence.
  • Famous Students? I pity the fool that doesn't know that Mr. T attended for one year before he was expelled.

PANTHERS TO WATCH:

  • The Prairie View Marching Storm Band: they may challenge the halftime undefeated record of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band.
