• There is defensive dominance and then there is what we saw from the Aggies against New Mexico on Saturday night. All told, A&M allowed just 144 yards of total offense, 24 yards through the air and a mere 2.4 yards per play, numbers that become even more impressive when you consider the fact that the Ags relied heavily on backups throughout the entire second half and were playing with a 40-something point lead.

A&M stopped the run (120 net yards on 42 attempts for a 2.9 ypc average), allowed just 7 pass completions netting a paltry 24 yards) and got off of the field on third down, holding the Lobos to just 4 conversions on 14 tries.
