The Eagle's Robert Cessna and Travis L. Brown took to Facebook Live to break down the Aggies' 2:30 p.m. Saturday SEC opener against Auburn and bring up the key talking points from Monday's press conference.
Texas A&M football coach Jimbo Fisher is very familiar with eighth-ranked Auburn’s true freshman who will make his first true road start Saturday against the 17th-ranked Aggies.
I voted Texas A&M 15th in my Associated Press Top 25 poll this week. The Aggies are among about 16 teams from eighth to 24th that have little separation. I have Florida eighth on the strength of victories over Miami and Kentucky, but the Aggies might be better than the Gators. Could Florida stay within 14 points of Clemson? I doubt it.
Texas A&M has been solid on defense and supported by a strong kicking game. Those are reasons to believe the Aggies will have a highly successful season.
• Texas A&M held Lamar to 1 for 16 on third-down conversions, including 0 for 9 in the second half, the Aggies’ best effort of the 21st century. Their previous best over that span came against McNeese State on Sept. 1, 2001, when A&M held the Cowboys to 1 for 14 on third down.
Robert Cessna grades the Aggies' performance on Saturday.
Texas A&M wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon has been a mentor to freshman wideout Ainias Smith since their elementary school days on the flag football fields of Houston.
If it had been a practice, Jimbo Fisher might not have sent the players home early, but he’d have been in the face of a few of them.
With Texas A&M’s starting tailback Jashaun Corbin going down for the season with a hamstring injury last week, the job in the backfield was there for the taking.
The 16th-ranked Texas A&M football team took care of business on the scoreboard Saturday with a 62-3 win over the Southland Conference’s Lamar, but the scoreboard wasn’t necessarily indicative of the Aggies’ performance. Here are three takeaways from the night at Kyle Field:
After suffering a loss in his debut as head coach of Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Ben Palmer knew his game plan needed to shift towards the young, raw talent of Jacob Kibodi.
A lot has changed for Texas A&M wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon since head coach Jimbo Fisher took over the reigns in Aggieland. Now as a junior, Ausbon has stepped into a leadership role among the receiving corps after tallying 946 yards and three touchdowns in his first two seasons. This year, he’s learned to improve his suit game as well as continuing to post numbers, including 144 receiving yards and a touchdown in the Aggies’ first two games.
It’s going to be a great Saturday night for a couple Lamar Cardinals as they return home to play Texas A&M.
Poor Lamar. Texas A&M will be on a mission Saturday, and the Cardinals will take the brunt of it. The Aggie offense will want to get the running game going, while also taking shots down field after quarterback Kellen Mond’s slow start and seven dropped passes by the receivers last week. If A&M’s defense plays as well as it has so far this season, things will get one-sided rather quickly.
In looking ahead, 16th-ranked Texas A&M had to look behind, and it wasn’t pretty, especially for the offense and quarterback Kellen Mond.
The unbeaten Lamar Cardinals will come into Saturday’s game against 16th-ranked Texas A&M at Kyle Field on the heels of a 23-20 overtime victory over Mississippi Valley State.
Today’s bible verse for the 24-mammal Prognosticator Panel comes from Beautiful Savior Lutheran pastor Caleb Schoeneck.
Buffalo rookie linebacker Tyrel Dodson, who left Texas A&M a year early, has been suspended for six games without pay for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, reported the Buffalo News.
Former Texas A&M wide receiver Devonte “Speedy” Noil was arrested Wednesday on charges of assault, evading arrest and failure to pay bond on two previous charges.
Texas A&M’s receivers had an eye-opening game last year against Clemson, but in Saturday’s rematch they often played as if they had their eyes closed, dropping seven passes.
Jimbo Fisher has created great expectations at Texas A&M, which made Saturday’s 24-10 loss to top-ranked Clemson a great disappointment for many.
Jimbo Fisher had a successful first season at Texas A&M because the Aggies built off an early loss to Clemson. That’s the challenge facing the A&M coach again after top-ranked Clemson grabbed a 24-10 victory Saturday.
CLEMSON, S.C. — Here are three quick observations from No. 12 Texas A&M’s 24-10 loss at No. 1 Clemson on Saturday.
CLEMSON, S.C. — You certainly weren’t living under Howard’s Rock if you missed several Texas A&M players’ bold claims about their trip to Death Valley.
CLEMSON, S.C. — Minutes following a 59-minute manhandling, a pummeled Kellen Mond stood in a Memorial Stadium tunnel, absorbing what had shaken out between No. 12 Texas A&M and top-ranked Clemson.
Clemson has been on the mind of some of Texas A&M’s players since they watched the Tigers blast Alabama in the national title game. The Aggies were one play from beating the Tigers last season, but they weren’t a play away from winning the national title or even the Southeastern Conference. A&M wants to reach the point where it’s a contender to make the College Football Playoff annually. Saturday’s game will be a good barometer for the Aggies, one of many this season and probably the toughest.
Jimbo Fisher and Dabo Swinney have had a friendly, productive rivalry. Hopefully for Fisher and the Aggies, the best is yet to come.
