Jace Sternberger is a stud

You probably already knew this, but it was confirmed on Saturday: Jace Sternberger is one of the best tight ends in the country. He already went into the game with 18 receptions that led to first downs, which was most among tight ends. He solidified his place with the best in the nation with his performance against South Carolina.

Jace finished the day with seven catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. He simply dominated. Every catch was in a huge moment. It seemed like all of them he was getting a first down or a touchdown, or making defenders look silly trying to tackle him.

The Aggies did not have Jhamon Ausbon or Kendrick Rogers available due to injury, and they needed the other players to step up. Sternberger did that and more.

He now has 29 receptions for 496 yards and six touchdowns on the season, and is No. 1 in the country in both yards and touchdowns for tight ends.
