Aggies must reverse second-half trend

Texas A&M has led all eight of its games this season by double digits.

That streak looks like its over, but the Aggies can't afford another second-half swoon if they want to prevent this season from getting any further out of control.

Oklahoma leads 34-10 after scoring three quick touchdowns in the third quarter, highlighted by a perfect one-handed grab in tight coverage by Jaz Reynolds, his second one-handed TD catch in two weeks.

The Aggies, meanwhile, surrendered great field position for the first two drives with an interception and a 14-yard punt.

By now the Aggies' second-half failures have devolved into a tired joke, but they're still happening. This time, though, there was no lead to protect.

As a result, we could see another frustrating loss for the Aggies, who dropped double-digit leads in losses to Arkansas, Oklahoma State and Missouri.

Ryan Tannehill's struggled with his accuracy today (13-of-32, 176 yards, TD, 2 INT), and Landry Jones has as well, but the Sooners are rolling in the second half.

The Aggies finding a way to slow that trend would be a shocker.
