When Texas A&M and Duke take the field the receivers will play a huge part in the outcome. The big name that the Aggies will need to account for is Jamison Crowder. For the most part he is the receiving game. Their second leading receiver is Braxton Deaver the tight end who had 40 receptions, 484 yards and four scores. Crowder attributed 96 receptions, 1,197 yards and seven scores.  Here is the breakdown of the receiving stats per ESPN.
