The first game of the season for Texas A&M football is finally here, and the Aggies wasted no time in showcasing their new-look offense. OC Bobby Petrino cooked up a masterful first drive for the Aggies, capped off with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Conner Weigman to Noah Thomas, who by all accounts could be the breakout player for this offense this year.
It was an absolutely beautiful toss by Conner, and the whole drive showed his skill, after he scrambled for a huge pickup earlier. This is exactly the type of offense that Aggie fans everywhere have been waiting to see all offseason. Here’s what the touchdown looked like:
I’ve got a feeling this is the first of very, very many more to come between these two players.
The RB-by-committee approach was also on display from this Texas A&M football staff. Rueben Owens and Leveon Moss both got touches on the opening drive and showcased their ability.
Like I said, this is the first of many to come this year for Texas A&M football. New Mexico is really bleeding the clock, so the Aggies may not get a whole lot of time of possession compared to other games.
