Texas A&M seems to be turning the corner after stumbling out of the gate this season. A&M has won its last three after losing four in a row to start the season. We may see if that turn around is real Friday when the Aggies host Valparaiso. The Valparaiso Crusaders are 6-5, and with one exception have rotated wins and losses this season.
