Third quarter of Texas A&M football vs LSU
The third quarter opened with a nice screen to Jahdae, where he broke a couple of tackles en route to a 10 yard gain. Another pass on the next play, this time to Thomas, also picked up a first down. An offsides call against Maason Smith gave the Aggies a free 5 yards, and a speed option keep by Jaylen picked up the first. A rollout by Henderson resulted in a deep pass to Jahdae Walker, who made the grab inside the 10. A handoff to Moss gained five on a physical run, and another handoff to 8 put the Aggies inside the 1. Instead of a third straight run to Moss, Henderson handed the ball to Mark Nabou, who rumbled right into the end zone, making the score 24-14.
LSU picked up a quick 14 yards on their first play, but Daniels threw way behind his receiver on their next play. A short pass and another drop brought up 4th and 4, but Daniels broke out of the pocket on a long scramble down into the red zone. Two Daniels carries inside the 5 couldn’t find the end zone, but a jumbo package run broke through on third to make the score 24-21.
The Aggies started in favorable field position once again after a long return by Rueben Owens. A couple of short runs brought up 3rd and 3 near midfield, and a scramble by Jaylen Henderson picked up the first. Moss picked up another conversion after a Henderson scramble, but a first down pass to Jahdae was dropped. An Owens rush picked up four, and a pass into a third down blitz got another four. Elijah Robinson went for it on fourth down and picked up plenty with a handoff to Moss. A run for no gain on first and a throwaway on second brought up 3rd and 10 from the 15, and a QB draw went nowhere on third. Bond had an easy kick from 32, but he pushed it right.
LSU took over at their own 20. A first down rush went nowhere, and Jayden Daniels was sacked for a one yard loss on second. That brought up the end of the third quarter.
