ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas A&M couldn't have asked for a better first defensive series to build confidence for the game.

After the Razorbacks were limited to 4 yards on their first two plays, Von Miller crashed in for a sack on third down, beating the slower Arkansas offensive linemen before hitting Ryan Mallett.

A&M's defense needed an early stand against what was supposed to be a high-powered offense.

The Aggies have set the tone with their defense.

It will be interesting to see how the Razorbacks respond to the early stop.
