The first big challenge is out of the way for the Texas A&M Football team. Sometimes, getting your first win can be difficult, even if it happens against a team that is perceived as being much worse than your own.
Last weekend, Texas A&M took care of Kent State with relative ease, slipping past the Golden Flashes with a 31-point margin. Next week, however, they’ll get right back into it in a game that could potentially sneak up on them.
To get the win, Texas A&M will have to be on their game. Colorado will likely pose a bigger threat than a MAC team in Kent State, so certain players who were quiet in the Aggies’ first game of the season may need to step into a bigger role.
Texas A&M Football Week 2 Star No. 1: RB Isaiah Spiller
To be fair, there aren’t many negatives to say about Isaiah Spiller‘s Week 1 performance against Kent State. He didn’t put up the huge record-breaking stat line that we were expecting, but the third-year Aggie runningback managed to record 113 rushing yards on 6.6 yards per attempt.
The caveat here is that his performance was overshadowed by his counterpart in the runningback room in Devon Achane, who eclipsed his rushing total and reached the endzone on two separate occasions. Achane rushed for 124 yards on over 10 yards per attempt.
This, however, doesn’t change the fact that Spiller is the number one ball carrier on this team. Expect him to bounce back and have an impressive performance against Colorado, reaching the endzone on at least one occasion.
