Aggies take care of business in opener
By David Ubben
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M joined Oklahoma and Oklahoma State as top teams in the Big 12 not flirting with upsets in Week 1.
The Aggies played in front of a crowd of 86,951, the largest ever for a season opener and the sixth-largest of all-time. They treated them to exactly what they wanted to see, a 46-14 win.
Texas A&M never trailed, and quite frankly, its offense looked unstoppable.
Ryan Tannehill & Co. have the league's most complete attack, and they showcased it against a Mustangs defense that looked helpless at time.
Tannehill finished 21-of-26 passing for 246 yards and two touchdowns.
Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael each scored two touchdowns and combined for 217 yards on 36 carries.
I'm heading down for interviews, but we'll have a lot more later Sunday tonight.
