This was the set at the start of the fourth quarter, and they seemed to play well. Arkansas is not the same defense as Auburn, Alabama, or Florida, but they are still an SEC team. This line was able to move people around, run the ball, and protect Mond. The Aggie running backs were able to pick up several key third downs in the second half, when these guys were in.
The struggles on the offensive line may have been finding a group that works. This group is not one that will be talked about as one of the best in the nation, but they have great potential and play well right now. They should be the guys that play throughout SEC play.
Next week against South Carolina, they should face another solid defense. This unit will continue to be a work-in-progress, but they will grow week to week during SEC play. Building off the success of running for 285 yards and passing for 216, these guys should have some valuable confidence next week. As they develop, look for them to become a valuable asset to this Aggie team.
