Offense in Review: Texas A&M 55, New Mexico 14

November 14, 2017
1,965

• Nick Starkel threw for 416 yards and 4 touchdowns in the first half alone and would have shattered Texas A&M's single-game passing record had Noel Mazzone left him in the game for probably another two or three possessions. He allowed Mazzone to utilize his entire playbook, made beautiful downfield throws over the middle and deep down the sidelines and did all of the little things to make the offense go. Nick's ability to get the Aggies to the line of scrimmage quickly, read the defense, get them into the right play and snap the ball changes the entire look and rhythm of the offense and his decision-making, ability to move quickly through his progressions and a lightning-fast release are all reasons why what had been a dormant A&M passing game exploded against a New Mexico defense that dared the Ags to beat them on the perimeter and over the top.
