Aggies comeback in the works?
By David Ubben
ARLINGTON, Texas -- There's still a lot of ground left to make up, but Texas A&M finally got on the board in the second half and trail 35-24.
On 3rd-and-goal, quarterback Ryan Tannehill hit Kenric McNeal in the back left corner of the end zone for a pretty touchdown on a fade route, his second touchdown pass of the day.
The drive continued only after officials determined LSU had 12 men on the field during a Texas A&M punt near midfield.
To complete the comeback, the Aggies will have to do what they haven't done all game: stop the run. Offensively, they're probably capable of surpassing 35 points. But if the Tigers continue to control the ball with a bruising running game, one more touchdown would almost certainly put it out of reach for Texas A&M.
