No signs of A&M second-half stumble
By David Ubben
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M played two of the most memorable games in the Big 12 this season.
The Aggies, though, did it by blowing gigantic second-half leads of 17 and 18 points against Oklahoma State and Arkansas.
Oklahoma State opened the second half of its win over A&M with a touchdown.
Against Arkansas, the Aggies went three-and-out and gave up a field goal to kick off the second half.
No such struggles against Baylor.
Texas A&M marched 77 yards in 13 plays and Ryan Tannehill threw his fourth touchdown pass of the day and third to Ryan Swope. Both of those are career highs.
Swope has nine catches for 133 yards with his touchdowns.
There's no guarantee Texas A&M closes this one out against a dangerous offense, but the Aggies got exactly the start they needed in the second half.
