Takeaway No. 1: The Texas A&M football team’s offense is here to stay
I’ll stick on the offensive end for my second takeaway, which is simple — Jimbo Fisher’s offense is here to stay.
Rewind a few weeks and we’re talking about a program that couldn’t seem to score against a Power Five opponent. They played a Colorado team that is now 2-5 on the year and only scored 10 points. They would do the same two weeks later against Arkansas.
Even their 22-point performance against Mississippi State was a huge letdown.
That said, things have turned around 180 degrees since that performance. It started with a 41-point game against the Alabama Crimson Tide and continued with a 35-point scoring night against Missouri last weekend.
It continued against his week against South Carolina, where Texas A&M accumulated 479 total yards and 44 points in their contest against the Gamecocks. This game included a potent rushing attack, which is becoming a theme for the Aggies.
Zach Calzada is also growing increasingly confident and seems to be improved under pressure. He’s not a Heisman candidate, but he’s doing enough to allow this offense to be serviceable. Look for this unit to continue to improve through the end of the season.
