Texas A&M Football Makes Huge Play in the Third Phase
Texas A&M football was in a jam in the first half against the Ole Miss Rebels. Down 14-0, the Rebs had put together yet another red zone drive. Back to back holding penalties moved the Rebels back, however, and Texas A&M football was able to stop the Rebels from converting. Ole Miss was held out of the end zone, and brought out the former Aggie Caden Davis to attempt a field goal. This kick would have made it 17-0 about halfway through the second quarter.
However, the Aggies had other plans. The front for A&M busted through the protection for the Rebels and got a hand on the kick, which bounced fortuitously right into the hands of freshman safety Jacoby Mathews. Jacoby was able to accelerate past every Ole Miss player on the field, taking the ball over 70 yards for a touchdown.
This was a huge swing in the game. Texas A&M football needed something to happen pretty badly, as their offense has been very slow against their aggressive Rebel defense. A ten-point swing was just what the Aggies needed. This is the third phase for Texas A&M football giving the team another chance, and now the offense needs to answer the bell by getting some long drives resulting in touchdowns. Whether they can do that will determine how the rest of this game goes.
