The Aggies had a much-needed “W “and so did Buddy, who won our Predict the Score contest with his prediction of 35-21. The Aggies had some impressive offensive stats, including rushing for more than 300 yards, the first time that’s happened since beating OU in the 2013 Cotton Bowl. And Kyler Murray had a beautiful debut as the Ags’ starting QB, staying poised, protecting the rock, hitting his receivers with some beautiful touch throws and rushing for more than 100 yards – as did Tra Carson; that’s two-100 yard rushers in a game!
Yes, we KNOW. Beating South Carolina is NOT the same as beating Bama or Ole Miss. And the defense still had trouble stopping the run. But Donovan Wilson had two picks, including one for a TD, the A&M safeties continued to impress, Dae Dae and Myles were their dominant selves and the defense has not stopped playing tough.
With the two-loss monkey off their backs, we can all look forward to next week as we watch the beginnings of a Wrecking Crew D and the evolution of a superstar QB for the fightin’ Texas Aggies.
Congratulation, Buddy! We will be sending you your well deserved prize of a professional set of Copag Peek-Index Poker Cards from our friendly staff at the Texas Poker Store.
