Raise your hand if you’re beyond ready for SEC competition to start. The Aggies put the finishing touches on their 3rd straight cream-puff, non-conference matchup this past weekend. Yes, the out of conference schedule gets much better next year and years after. However, playing Lamar, Rice, and SMU in consecutive weeks has been nothing short of brutal. The most exciting part of the game didn’t even take place on the field.
Pretty good form if ya ask me. And I love how Reveille doesn’t even flinch.
It only took the first quarter for this game to get well out of reach. The Aggies rolled to a 17-0 lead and outgained SMU 254 yards to -8. By halftime, it was 38-3 and a 412-63 offensive yard advantage in favor of A&M. At that point, most of the starters were taken out and replaced by 2nd and 3rd stringers.
Kenny Hill was solid with 16/22 for 265 yards and 2 touchdowns. However, he threw his first interception due to miscommunication with Ricky Seals-Jones. It has seemed lately that these two players have not been on the same page. Hopefully, the miscues and dropped passes get shored up before Arkansas next week.
Jeremy Tabuyo had a breakout game in the absence of Speedy Noil catching two passes for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Hawaiian native clearly made the most of his opportunities and showcases just how deep this wide receiver group truly is. Trey Williams also performed well with 2 touchdowns of his own on 7 carries. Offensively, there was nothing the Aggies couldn’t accomplish as they rolled to a 58-6 victory.
- The Aggies tallied 8 sacks tying the record for most sacks since Sumlin has been coach. This gives the Aggies 17 sacks on the season and most in the SEC.
- Shaan Washington and De’Vante Harris both returned from their respective injuries and made immediate impacts. Washington played with instinct and speed the Aggies have been missing at linebacker recording 2 sacks along the way.
- The offense averaged 9.8 yards per play en route to 663 total yards on the game.
- Kyle looked more comfortable in his 3rd game of playing time. He showed more poise in the pocket passing for 130 yards on 15 attempts with no interceptions. He also threw a touchdown strike to Jeremy Tabuyo in the 3rd quarter.
