College Football 2019: Where to Watch Texas A&M vs. Clemson, TV Channel, Live Stream, Odds

Clemson began its title defense on the front foot last week, thrashing Georgia Tech 52-14 to extend its winning streak to 16 straight games dating back to last season.

On Saturday, the Tigers face their first Top-25 opponent of the campaign when they host No.12 ranked Texas A&M in a rematch of what was arguably one of the best matches of 2018.

In September last year Clemson beat Texas A&M 28-26 in College Station, Texas. Down 21-6, the Aggies rallied back and were a missed two-point conversion away from tying the game in the closing stages.

Their task this weekend is altogether more difficult. Clemson has won a national title since the two teams last met and has begun the season looking every bit as a team determined to win back-to-back championships.

Trevor Lawrence went 13-of-23 and was held to a modest 168 passing yards and one touchdown pass, but Travis Etienne stole the show as the Tigers torched Georgia Tech last week.

The running back, the reigning Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, rushed for a career-high 205 yards on 12 carries and had three touchdowns.

Clemson shutdown Georgia Tech in the first two quarters but despite the emphatic scoreline there were mistakes on both sides of the ball which coach Dabo Swinney is eager to rectify.

"We can give them [the players] some truth," Swinney said in his post-match press conference. "They have to receive the truth and we've got to get better."

A win against Texas A&M would be Clemson's 17th consecutive win, which would match the progam's all-time longest winning streak. The Tigers won 17 straight games across the final three games of the 2014 season and the first 14 games in 2015.

At the same time, Texas A&M is arguably going to be the defending champions' hardest test this season. Alongside No. 21 ranked Syracuse, which the Tigers face on the road next week, the Aggies are the only currently ranked team on Clemson's schedule.

Texas A&M's schedule, meanwhile, is far harder. After Clemson, Jimbo Fisher's men will play another three teams currently ranked in the top 10

On October 12, No. 2 Alabama travels to College Station, before back-to-back meetings against No. 3 Georgia and No. 6 LSU in November.

The Aggies began the season with a convincing 41-7 win over Texas State last week, shutting down their opponents in the first three quarters.

Kellen Mond finished 19-of-27 for 194 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, while Isaiah Spiller and Jashaun Corbin combined for 209 rushing yards over 29 carries.

In his first season in college station, Jimbo Fisher guided the Aggies to a 9-4 record and a solid display against the defending champions on the road would be a major boost for the program.

In nine meetings against Tigers coach Dabo Swinney, Fisher has lost five and won four. It would be very surprising is the latter was to draw level this weekend.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Saturday.
