The Texas A&M football team is 4-1 and ranked No. 9 in the nation after one month of regular-season play. The first half of the Aggies' schedule has produced a number of surprising statistics.
The Aggies' record is what most expected. The loss to No. 1 Alabama was not a surprise to anyone who has watched college football during the past few years.
Alabama has set the standard of excellence under Nick Saban. The Aggies' struggles on defense have been a surprise. Their inability to match or exceed the defensive performance on the 2012 squad has been a source of frustration to fans and coaches alike.
At the same time, the offense has exceeded most expectations. The Aggies are on pace to break offensive school records for the second year in a row.
This is a look at the most surprising statistics from the Aggies' 2013 campaign.
