After a tough loss that snapped a four-game winning streak for the Aggies, the Texas A&M football team bounced back with a dominant victory over Prairie View A&M. In the home game, Jimbo Fisher’s team scored a season-high 52 points en route to a 49-point margin of victory.
And in this contest, there were a handful of positive takeaways for the Aggies.
Today, I’m going to be covering the three best parts of the Aggies’ dominant victory on Saturday, starting with the most generalized one.
No. 1: The Texas A&M football team, once again, played flawless defense
The Texas A&M football team didn’t allow Prairie View A&M to hang around in this game for a second. In fact, the Aggies had already built up a 21-point lead by the end of the first quarter. By the time the first half concluded, the score was 38-0.
In total, A&M only allowed three points in the game on a third quarter field goal by Prairie View.
The Panthers mustered just 154 total yards, 147 of which were rushing yards. If you’re one for math, that gives Prairie View just seven passing yards in the game.
While this was definitely a testament to the Aggies’ secondary play, Texas A&M’s defensive line flexed its muscles on Saturday. This translated on the stat sheet to four sacks and nine tackles for loss, though it felt like a lot more than that.
Granted, the opponent had less talent, but this was still a promising defensive performance for A&M.
