Aggies take to the ground to pull within 35-32

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas' biggest defensive strength coming into the game was its rush defense.

Christine Michael powered Texas A&M within 35-32 with 13:38 left in the game, accounting for the final 33 yards on three carries to punctuate the six-play drive.

Michael has accounted for 77 yards on 18 carries, and the Aggies have piled up 156 yards -- the most rushing yards Texas has allowed this season.

It hasn't been a national championship type of performance for the Longhorns -- particularly the last three plays of that scoring drive.

It will be up to Colt McCoy and the prolific Texas offense to answer it.
