Texas A&M football is still unsure about who to start at the quarterback this season. What did we learn about Kellen Mond and Jake Hubenak it Week 2?

After a shaky performance in Week 2 against Nicholls State, the Aggies came away with a win. They played both of their remaining quarterbacks. Their performances will dictate the results of the season. So, how did they actually do? Where is this season headed for the Fightin Texas Aggies?

We all know what could’ve happened last week in Las Angeles. We all know what did. What may have hurt even worse than the loss of the game was the loss of starting quarterback Nick Starkel. The red-shirt freshman didn’t look like he was going to win the Heisman by any means, but his performance was a pretty solid base to build on and he put the Aggies in pretty good situations. His performance paired with the Aggies run game looked like that the Aggies had a chance to be a ranked team this year.

With the loss of Starkel, the Aggies decided to turn to true freshman Kellen Mond to take the helm Saturday against the Nicholls State Colonels. Even though Mond had a well below par performance against UCLA, Kevin Sumlin and the Aggie staff decided to see if he could redeem himself and gain some confidence against a what was supposed to be a weaker team.

Sure, the Aggies got the dub, but Mond had to be benched and the play calling wasn’t impressive, to say the least. How did the two quarterbacks do? What does their performance mean for the Aggie fans and for Kevin Sumlin?
