The 12th Man - 2009 Texas A&M Aggies Aggies freshman RB Michael has big game vs New Mexico, A&M wins 45-14 The Aggies opened the season with a good home win vs New Mexico, led by their freshman RB Christine Michael, who started his college career with 150 yards and 3 TD's. He won the job in camp due to his ability to run with power between the tackles, and demonstrated that in this game, with 26 carries. The passing game was little used (only 17 attempts) and fairly effective (10 completions, 1 TD no INT's). QB Johnson would have had a better game but he wasn't helped by his receivers, as 4 catchable passes were dropped in the game. The defense struggled on the first two Lobo drives, but then turned it around, preventing any scores after the 1st quarter.
