Aggies look to take step forward against Louisiana-Lafayette

COLLEGE STATION TX- SEPTEMBER 09 Christian Kirk #3 of the Texas A&M Aggies breaks the tackle of Joel Dullary #12 of the Nicholls State Colonels in fourth quarter at Kyle Field Cessna: Texas A&M QBs need more help from offensive line

Freshman quarterback Kellen Mond is expected to get his second career start, and while Sumlin typically doesn't discuss injuries, senior Jake Hubenak is expected to sit out Saturday's game with a nagging shoulder ailment. "I think both guys. need to be developed and continue to develop and the only way to do that is practice them both and play them both", he said. Louisiana could be in position to sneak out of College Station with an upset win if taken lightly, while A&M needs reps against live action to forge chemistry on offense before hitting conference play. He also remembers that Texas A&M had a hard time covering wide receiver Brandon Stokley, and that his then-University of Southwestern Louisiana team relied on its defense to pull off the biggest football win in school history.

"We're just trying to find the best combination of starting five that will produce the best right now", junior offensive lineman Conner Lanfear said. "That whole week, I thought we were going to win the game".

Some fans have been crying for his resignation for two years. The normally run-oriented Aggies threw 33 times that game along with 41 rushes, and Broussard said if A&M had concentrated on its running game, it's likely that then-Cajun coach Nelson Stokley wouldn't have been carried off the field afterward.

Heading into Saturday's game at Kyle Field, this year's Cajuns are also struggling to stop the running game, ranking next-to-last nationally. So which defense will show up?

The Aggies seem to be dominating the line of scrimmage more through two games they have logged 9 tackles for loss along with 5 quarterback sacks.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart, who used to lead Alabama's defense, said he's seen success no matter where coordinators stood during games. Not yet. Were there some things we improved on? Yes.

The Aggies went into halftime trailing 21-14 before pouring things on in the second half. "We knew our defense was playing well, but we knew it was going to be tough to score on them". A&M is ramming the pigskin down the opposition's throat in the run game, putting up 289 rushing yards per game on average, which includes 382 yards against UCLA.

"I thought it was easier to make in-game adjustments and look your players in the eyes", Smart said.
