Summer Stock: Texas A&M
An improved O-line and better ball security could have Aggies among Big 12 elite
This article is part of our Summer Stock series, a three-week look at the programs generating the most buzz coming out of spring practice.
The Aggies defined their 2010 season on Nov. 6, when they beat the Oklahoma Sooners 33-19. It was the Aggies' first win over the Sooners since 2002 and their first win over a ranked team since 2007. More important, though, was how they won -- with Ryan Tannehill's passing, Cyrus Gray's running and some out-of-this-world goal-line defense.
Those were three of the biggest reasons that the Aggies finished near the top of the Big 12 last year -- and they provide a blueprint for how the team can contend for a Big 12 title in 2011.
