Twenty-one years ago this week, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns pulled off the biggest upset in school history by toppling Texas A&M at Lafayette, La. The Aggies eventually rallied in the second half, shutting out the Ragin' Cajuns in the final 30 minutes to take a 45-21 victory. The Aggies surrendered a 34-point lead in a season-opening loss to UCLA, then had an unimpressive win against lowly Nicholls this past Saturday.
Texas A&M once again looks less than stellar.
A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin said at Tuesday's press conference both quarterbacks would play Saturday, but Hubenak wasn't made available to the media.
When/where: 11 a.m. today; Kyle Field, College Station.
A look at all the action from the third weekend of the season in the SEC.
Up next for the Aggies is a home game Saturday against Louisiana-Lafayette (1-1), their final tuneup before opening Southeastern Conference play on September 23 against Arkansas.
"We're exhausted of people not thinking highly of us and we're just ready to prove that we can be really good", sophomore linebacker Tyrel Dodson said.
Texas A&M has only eight offensive plays of 20 yards or longer.
A walk-on, Gunnell was not surprisingly absent on the sideline during the second half.
Texas A&M tied things, 21-21, with a Mond 5-yard touchdown run at the 10:27 mark of the third quarter, before Mond threw his third touchdown pass of the game at the 6:23 mark of the third period, this one to Camron Buckley from 12 yards away, to give them a 28-21 lead.
Saturday's game can't be a third straight roller-coaster ride for A&M.
The Aggies defeated Nicholls State 24-14 last week, but they were on upset alert for that game too.
Texas A&M was outgained 227-127 and had just five first downs in the first half before the tide changed.
