Texas A&M Football

Around Aggieland (10/12)

October 12, 2020

It was a good weekend for Texas A&M Athletics as both the football team and the soccer team picked up wins in ranked matchups. During Monday's edition of TexAgs Radio, Richard Zane shares the latest on Aggie football, soccer, volleyball and an update on Ags in pro sports.

Football (2-1)
With the Aggies’ upset of No. 4 Florida, Texas A&M has jumped up to No. 11 in this week’s AP Poll (Florida dropped to No. 10).

Texas A&M football’s next game will be this Saturday, October 17, in Starkville against Mike Leach’s Mississippi State team. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. and will be aired on the SEC Network.

Soccer (2-1)
In another ranked matchup between the Aggies and Gators, the Maroon & White once again got the better of Florida. No. 11 Texas A&M defeated No. 15 Florida, 2-1, behind goals from freshman Barbara Olivieri (22’) and senior Jimena Lopez (PK - 28’).

  • The Aggies outshot the Gators 18-5.

A&M’s next match is against the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Friday, October 16, at Ellis Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

Aggies in Pro Sports

NBA Finals
Los Angeles Lakers (Alex Caruso) defeat Miami Heat, 4-2

  • Game 6: LAL 106, MIA 93
    • Caruso: Starter, 4 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists in 33 minutes (+20)

Alex Caruso became the first Aggie since 1958 (Walter Buddy Davis) to win an NBA Championship.

Richard’s top three performers from Week Five in the NFL

  1. Damontre Moore (Seattle) - 4 tackles, 2 solo tackles, 1.0 sack in 27-26 win over Minnesota
  2. Christian Kirk (Arizona) - 5 receptions, 78 yards, long: 24, 7 targets, 3 punt returns, 8 return yards, long: 5 in 30-10 win over NY Jets
  3. Braden Mann (New York Jets) - 6 punts, 279 yards (46.5 avg), Long: 59, 4 inside the 20 in 30-10 loss to Arizona

Honorable mention: Justin Madubuike (Baltimore) got his first NFL action and made his first career tackle. Myles Garrett (Cleveland) and Mike Evans (Tampa Bay) are still really, really good, but I wanted to spread the wealth around a bit.

MLB Postseason
ALCS: Tampa Bay Rays lead Houston Astros (Brooks Raley), 1-0

  • Game 1: TB 2, HOU 1
    • Raley: 1.0 IP (8th inning), 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K
