Winner No. 2: Texas A&M Football RB Isaiah Spiller
When you look through the box score on offense for Texas A&M, there are little-to-no statistics that will make you feel good about this game. Zach Calzada seemed like he was afraid to throw the football. When he did throw it, his passes didn’t look great.
The offensive unit as a whole looked terrible.
Thankfully, the offense did have a saving grace. Or at least the semblance of one. I’m referring to Isaiah Spiller.
Spiller did what we’ve been expecting of him all season long. He ran the ball efficiently behind a subpar offensive line. He didn’t necessarily have any space to run, but he was able to slither out of tackles with ease and gain more yards than he was due. Because of how awful the offensive line was, his numbers didn’t look flashy.
Spiller finished the game with just 12 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown, leading to the question — why didn’t Jimbo Fisher run the ball more frequently?
Spiller also had 26 receiving yards on five catches. Sadly, this was third-most on the team and only nine yards away from leading the Aggies on Saturday.
