The Texas A&M Football team has more than enough talent to lead the league in rushing yards
From defending rushing attacks to executing their own rushing attack, the Aggies should be in good hands next season.
In a similar progression to their defensive front, the Texas A&M Football team loses a few pieces on the offensive line. Having said that, they also lost their starting quarterback in Kellen Mond and retained an endless amount of runningback production from a year ago.
Isaiah Spiller will look to build off of a 1,000-yard, 9-touchdown season where his longest rushing attempt was just 36 yards. He is the golden standard of consistency from the halfback spot in college football.
Behind him, you’ll see Devon Achane, who emerged last season as a more explosive option for Jimbo Fisher to throw into the game at his leisure. Achane averaged a jarring 8.5 yards per carry in his freshman campaign, reaching the endzone four times on the ground. He also cemented himself as a threat in the passing game, accumulating 97 yards and a touchdown on just 5 receptions.
With a new-look offensive line and quarterback, this team will look to lean heavily on the running game in 2021. A Texas A&M team that finished 27th in rushing yards per game in 2020 will look to build off of that number in 2021 and lead their conference.
