Jerrod Johnson turned in a pretty solid first half for the Aggies, but he's fighting an uphill battle to lead Texas A&M to a victory today. Miami is shredding the Aggies defense, averaging almost a first down -- 9.3 yards -- per offensive play on the way to a 24-10 halftime lead at Kyle Field. The Hurricanes have only 35 more yards than A&M (261 to 226), but they've come up with a handful of big plays, including four that have spanned 26 yards or more. Three of Miami's scoring drives have lasted fewer than two minutes, and the Hurricanes are averaging a hearty 14.5 yards per rush.
There is some good news on the other side of the ball, where Johnson has passed for 160 yards and a touchdown and the Aggies have rushed for 66 yards. Freshman receiver Jeff Fuller has four catches for 61 yards.
And perhaps the best news of the day: Akron blasted still-winless Army -- the Aggies' opponent next week -- 22-3.
