Conner Weigman has absolutely been on fire for Texas A&M football against UNM. It looks like he may be the biggest beneficiary of the new-look offense under new OC Bobby Petrino—well, he or one of his receivers in Evan Stewart and Noah Thomas. He’s thrown two and three touchdowns to each respectively so far this game—well surpassing the mark for any Aggie QB last year through only three quarters of work. Here was what his fifth looked like:
Weigman has really shown it all this game, both in his scrambling ability and his knack for perfectly placed passes, even when facing pressure—and New Mexico has brought no shortage of pressure tonight. The Lobos clearly came in trying to make the sophomore uncomfortable, and Weigman has remained cool under the gun each and every time. To no avail, however, as Conner has dealt with every look with aplomb.
Moving forward, Texas A&M football fans have to be absolutely teeming with excitement at the prospect of Weigman connecting with these receivers throughout this season. Through three quarters of work, he led the Aggies to a score on six out of seven drives before ceding the QB spot to backup Max Johnson for the remainder of the game. Though Moose Muhammad was absent for a fair amount of the game, the rest of the Aggie WR corps showed how dangerous and skilled they are, getting behind the UNM secondary time and time again.
This game isn’t even over yet, and I’m already ready to see Weigman and this offense face off against Miami. Next Saturday can’t get here soon enough.
