The offense for Texas A&M football has woken up.
After a rough first half and an injury to star QB Conner Weigman, many Texas A&M football fans were feeling down. The Aggies entered the half only up by 3, and kicking it off to visiting Auburn. Thanks to stellar defense thus far in the second half, and great play by backup QB Max Johnson, this Aggie team has the Maroon and White faithful jazzed up. An example of Johnson’s great play is this amazing pass to Evan Stewart:
Both the placement by Johnson and the concentration by Stewart are absolutely amazing here. Evan knew he was going to get lit up on the hit by the safety, but he held on even though the Auburn player got there right after the ball did.
Aggie fans have to feel a lot better about the depth of their QB room after seeing what Johnson and company have been able to do in the second half. I don’t want to underrate, however, the ability to make halftime adjustments that OC Bobby Petrino has shown thus far in this season. This is very similar to what we saw in the Miami game, where it looked like the Aggie offense would be completely aimless for the whole day based on their second quarter performance. However, in the third and fourth quarters, they were marching it up and down the field in the face of tremendous defensive pressure from the Hurricanes. Hopefully we see the Aggies continue to have such offensive success through the end of the game, capping an emphatic win against Auburn.
