The passage of national signing day last week means there aren’t any college-football-related activities until spring football starts up in about six weeks. Luckily, the SEC provided us a nice little carrot on Monday when they released the TV schedule for the spring football games. The Aggies’ annual Maroon & White Game will be televised at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, on SEC Network.

With both coordinators returning from last season (don’t you make a liar out of me, Mike Elko), we shouldn’t expect to see any drastic changes in scheme, so this year’s game will be more about new players filling in the holes created by departed starters.
Things to watch in the Maroon & White game:
- Will Jashuan Corbin become the feature back with Trayveon Williams gone, or will it become more of a committee approach? How will transfer Cordarrian Richardson fit into that mix?
- With Jace Sternberger and Trevor Wood gone, will star recruit Baylor Cupp be able to step in and be a playmaking tight end as a true freshman?
- Linebacker. Do they still exist? If so, who are they? (Likely Anthony Hines, Buddy Johnson, Ikenna Okeke, but you get the idea)
- What will the QB play look like behind Kellen Mond, and who among James Foster, Conner Blumrick and early enrollee Zach Calzada will play their way into the backup spot?
- Texas A&M lost both starting defensive ends in Kingsley Keke and Landis Durham, but Michael Clemons (returning from injury) and freshman Demarvin Leal might have the ability to keep up the production without skipping a beat.
