COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- One fourth-down stop was all it took.

Texas A&M's offense has scored points on all four of its possessions this half and opened up a 48-28 lead midway through the fourth quarter.

The defense let Baylor get to the 4-yard line before making a stop to get the ball back.

It took just seven plays to go 96 yards and add another touchdown.

For Texas A&M's defense, it's pretty obvious that it doesn't need much to win games like this against teams without elite defenses.

The offense has been outstanding throughout, and one defensive stop in the entire half meant a 20-point lead. The defense also ended its 22-quarter streak without a turnover when Dustin Harris intercepted a Robert Griffin III jump ball.

This is what Texas A&M can be.

The defense doesn't have to be great for the Aggies to rescue this season. It just has to be better.

In the second half, it has been.
