Aggie's persistant running attack tackle Razorbacks 24-17
Holding the ball for over 20 minutes of the game, Texas A&M kept Arkansas and their super potent offense off the field. It seemed to work, holding the razorbacks to just over 200 yards of total offense. The aggies running attack was demoralizing for the Arkansas defense. They rushed for over 200 yards on the day on 50 carries, with a long run of only 10 yards. Jerrod Johnson was really solid when he needed to be in this road clash. He ran it when he needed to and made all of his throws. Mainly he didnt turn the ball over. Texas AM only turned it over once, on a fourth quarter fumble.
QB Johnson 13-13, 123 yards, 1 TD , 47 yards rushing, 1 TD
WR Fuller 8 rec, 80 yards
RB Gray 19 car, 92 yards, 1 TD
record = 1-0
Texas A&M overwelms Louisiana Tech at home 59-20
Despite having a nice opening drive on the aggies, LA Tech was held at bay by the A&M defense, and couldnt do anything to stop Jerrod Johnson and company on defense. LA Tech was held to 264 yards of total offense, including only 30 yards rushing on 26 attempts. They also were intercepted once.
The aggies on offense had likely their best balanced day on offense since the new ownership came in 2 years ago. Combining for 484 total yards on the ground and in the air, the LA Tech defense was completely off balance and couldnt stop either attack. The rushing attack was led by Cyrus Gray and Jerrod Johnson. The running game set up lethal play action passes to recieving options short and deep, and JOhnson connected on most of them on this day. The Aggies were also Turnover Free.
Player of the game:

Offense-- Played under center most of the time. It seemed like he favored singleback, used multiple formations out of that. Liked to run out of 3 wide a lot, mostly on counters and dives/stretches. Used play action pretty often to mix it up. I was able to get pretty good pressure by blitzing 1 extra or zone blitzing.
Defense-- Ran out of the base 4-3 A LOT. Didn't really shift his dline or lbs very much, just played straight up. When I came out in shotgun, he typically would stay in base, unless it was an obvious passing situation. Controlled MLB usually.
