Texas A&M football sent the senior class out with a win, thumping the New Mexico Lobos 55-14 for their first and only win at Kyle Field in November.

That is how you send off a senior class in their last game at Kyle Field. Texas A&M’s offense put on a show as the Aggies beat down New Mexico 55-14 and became bowl eligible for the ninth consecutive seasonNick Starkel started the game and showed the 12th Man that he should be the starting quarterback for the final two games of the season.

The Aggie defense had a shutout going through nearly the entire first half until Elijah Lilly took a kickoff 100-yards back for a touchdown. Yes let’s recognize that this was a New Mexico team that has lost their past four games. However, Kevin Sumlin and this Texas A&M blew this game wide open early and never let up which is exactly what they needed to do.

Texas A&M improved to 6-4 (3-3 SEC) with the win. They’ll have some work to do if they want to eclipse their 8-5 finishes from the last several seasons, but the win over the Lobos ensured that is still a possibility.

Here are three things we learned in the Aggies blowout of New Mexico in Week 11.
