Texas A&M Football will get a break from conference play when they will take on the UTSA Roadrunners on Saturday at home. Here is what to expect from A&M.
Texas A&M Football has certainly felt the rigors of conference play, holding a 3-2 record through their first five games of SEC action.
The Aggies are fresh off of a win over Mississippi State that saw a massive offensive outburst, including the best game of the season from quarterback Kellen Mond.
Mond threw for 234 yards and three touchdowns, as well as 2 touchdowns in addition to 78 yards on the ground. Through the early stages of the season, Mond’s all-around play had been a major area of weakness for the Aggies, but as conference play has progressed, the play of Mond has only improved.
Now, with a nice break in the schedule, the Aggies should have the opportunity to grow closer to their expectations and win their third-consecutive game against a lowly UTSA squad.
The Aggies are just one win away from bowl eligibility, and with games against LSU and Georgia looming on the schedule, they will need to win big against UTSA. Keeping Mond’s hot streak alive is key, as is maintaining the good health of the defense. If Mond can get the Aggies out to an early lead, there is a good chance that he will have the opportunity to watch the remainder of the game from the sidelines, as the Aggies would be smart to not risk injury in a game against an easy opponent.
This should be another walk in the park for the Aggies, who will finish their non-confernece schedule at 3-1 with a win. The Aggies need to stay healthy above all else, but maintaining the momentum of back-to-back wins with big games from Mond and other key weapons on offense will be another major area of emphasis.
