It didn't take long for Iowa State to take the lead against Texas A&M. The Cyclones, who have been struggling to run the ball in recent weeks, had no trouble doing so against the Aggies on a nine-play, 79-yard drive, scoring on Alexander Robinson's 1-yard dive into the end zone for a 7-0 lead. Robinson had six carries for 49 yards on the drive.
Texas A&M answered with a 74-yard drive, capped by Jerrod Johnson's 35-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Terrence McCoy. Tailback Mike Goodson is not suited up because of a sprained knee. His backup, freshman Cyrus Gray, had three carries for 17 yards on the opening drive.
