Aggies have impressive offensive stats
By Richard Durrett
There's no doubt that Georgia's defense is looking at plenty of film in an attempt to figure out how to slow a Texas A&M offense that has piled up yards this season.
The Aggies have averaged 465.3 yards per game, which leads the Big 12 and is fifth in the nation. In fact, Texas A&M is the only team in the country to be in the top-25 of four offensive categories -- total offense (No. 5), scoring offense (No. 15), passing offense (No. 22) and rushing offense (No. 25).
Texas A&M is one of two teams that averages over 80 offensive plays per game.
It's a dramatic increase in output from 2008, when the Aggies averaged 340.9 yards of offense per game.
