Aggie offense knows they need to play better in the second half down the stretch
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - The Texas A&M football team will step back on the field Saturday after last week’s bye. Besides getting a chance to get healthier the team also had a chance to reflect on the first half of the season and their 4-3 record.
The two most recent games to reflect on for the Aggies would be a pair of difficult loss to Alabama and Tennessee. In both instances the offense went into the half with the lead and only scored 3 points as the lead vanished and the team lost.
A&M tight end Max Wright spoke to the media on Monday and knows the offense needs to be much more assertive in the second half of games moving forward.
“We came out of the half in both of those games ahead. We were winning,” said Wright. “That is on us as players to keep the fire going and keeping the intensity up coming out of the half and not getting comfortable. That is one of the things that we talk about, is not just trying to hold a team down, but put them into the ground!” wrapped up the graduate player.
Now on the other side of the ball the Aggie defense is still tied for number one in the country in sacks averaging four per game.
South Carolina is one of the worse teams in the country in avoiding sacks having allowed 30 so far this season.
The Texas A&M team record for sacks in a game is 10 and was accomplished twice during the1995 season against Texas Tech and then repeated against Middle Tennessee State.
