Texas A&M Football had a big game on offense on Saturday, as the Aggies put up 45 points in a drubbing of UTSA. Running back Isaiah Spiller showed out in the win.
Texas A&M Football certainly expected to win their game against UTSA with ease on Saturday.
However, there was no lack of surprise surrounding the numbers put up by freshman running back Isaiah Spiller in the winning effort. Spiller ran for 217 yards and three touchdowns on just 20 carries against the Roadrunners, sitting out the entire fourth quarter due to the blowout.
While it is necessary to keep in mind that this performance is coming against a team that is not by any means a quality opponent or defense, the game that Spiller had is both impressive and memorable. Ever since starting running back Jashaun Corbin went down with a season-ending injury in week two, the Aggies have had a big question mark at running back.
Spiller had split time with fellow running back Jacob Kibodi throughout most of conference play, but after a solid game against Mississippi State, Spiller started to pull away as the starter. After this record-breaking performance, there is no doubt that Spiller will remain the starter for the Aggies next game against South Carolina, and perhaps the remaining three games of the season.
With Kellen Mond catching fire at quarterback throughout the past few weeks, as well as the emergence of Spiller following this performance, the Aggies offense, which had been a major concern, is now looking great heading into their roughest three game stretch of the season following their bye week when they will take on South Carolina, LSU, and Georgia. If the offense continues to click, there is no doubt that the Aggies have what it takes to win two of their last three games at the very least.
