Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M: Live Scores, Highlights and Analysis
Oklahoma State 30, Texas A&M 229 Final
The No. 7 Oklahoma State Cowboys travel to Kyle Field for a Top 10 showdown with the No. 8 Texas A&M Aggies. This game marks the first Top 10 matchup at Kyle Field since 1975.
The Aggies feature a formidable senior threesome on offense in QB Ryan Tannehill, RB Cyrus Gray and WR Jeff Fuller. The Cowboys counter with QB Brandon Weeden, RB Joseph Randle and WR Justin Blackmon.
The team most likely to win this game is the one whose defense steps up. Whoever wins the turnover battle should win the game. Both offenses are prolific and will score some points. This game will come down to which defense can get the big stop when they have to.
Brandon Weeden enters the game having thrown six interceptions in three games. The Aggies lead the nation in sacks with 11 after two games. The Aggies have not given up a sack yet this season. OSU has one of the best offensive lines in the country.
The winner of this game will start their conference slate 1-0 and will be the favorite along with Oklahoma to win the conference title.
OSU has beat A&M the last three years in a row.
Justin Blackmon runs the clock out and takes a safety.
Have to hand it to OSU for creating turnovers. Once again, the Aggies are left to wonder what if when it comes to turnovers and OSU.
OSU's defense is still suspect and will probably keep them from winning the conference title.
They will run into a team that will not turn the ball over four times in a half.
You have to hand it to Bill Young though, the turnovers took the running game away in the second half and prevented the Ags from controlling the tempo of the game.
The Ags have to forget about this one quickly because they face a very good Arkansas squad next week.
Aggies commit 4th turnover of the half. 3rd interception of the second half by Ryan Tannehill.
Matt Millen needs more work as an announcer than he did as a GM.
Big stop for the Aggies on 3rd down. Looks like they will get the ball back with around 1:50 left, down by 3.
I cannot remember a game pro or in college where there were so many stoppages for injuries.
Tannehill to Fuller for a 4 yard TD pass to bring the Aggies within 3.
May be too little too late.
You have to love announcers who talk about realignment but never address the real issues. The SEC is the top conference in the country and A&M will not have to deal with Texas breaking promises.
OSU has tackled much better in the second half.
Aggie defense cannot get out of their own way this half. Of course, it would be nice if you could see a replay of what they called the personal foul on that extended a drive after the Ags got a 3rd down stop.
Hand fighting is PI but tackling the WR before the ball gets there is not? Got it.
Expect OSU to try to pound the ball here.
OSU is starting to get pressure on Ryan Tannehill. Might be time to run a screen.
Markelle Martin flagged for targetting Aggie WR Ryan Swope. If he knocked Swope out of the game then 15 yards is a good tradeoff.
The Aggies had a lot of success early in the game pounding the ball up the middle. They have abandoned that in the second half.
The A&M defense has spent almost the entire 3rd quarter on the field. They look exhausted.
Have to hand it to the OSU defense for always finding a way to make a play. They take advantages of the opportunities that present themselves.
Aggies somehow need to force a FG here to stay in this game.
Aggies are falling apart. Second turnover this quarter.
Aggie defense is not getting any pressure at all on Weeden.
WOW! Justin Blackmon just fumbled the ball through the endzone for a touchback. Simply amazing.
Huge swing of momentum for the Aggies.
That was a very weak pass interference call. In the SEC that is known as hand fighting.
A&M's inability to make a 3rd down stop is killing them.
Deja vu for the Aggies. Giving up a large halftime lead in the 3rd quarter.
Brandal Jackson fumbling the ball was a killer. The Ags really needed a long drive and some points.
The Agiie defense cannot get off the field on 3rd down.
The Aggues need to roll a safety over on Blackmon and make the rest of the Cowboys receivers beat them.
A&M 20 OSU 10 3Q 10:05
If the OSU wide receivers keep dropping passes then the Aggies have a good shot in this one.
Great drive to open the half by OSU. Backup OLB Caleb Russell and ILB Shaun Ward were blocked out of the play on that touchdown run.
Josh Stewart had the big catch and run for OSU in that drive. Stewart had committed to A&M last year but switched to OSU so he could play WR in addition to CB.
Texas A&M 20 Oklahoma State 3 Halftime
Last year in Stillwater A&M went into the half leading 21-7. Dana Holgerson made halftime adjustments and lit the Aggie defense up in the second half. Will be interesting to see what Todd Monken comes up with.
OSU is receiving to start the second half. That first possession will tell us a lot.
Aggie OLBs have three sacks in the first half. In the 3-4 defense the OLBs need to be the stars, and so far today they have been.
Texas A&M 20 Oklahoma State 3 Halftime
After being invisible the first two games, Aggie ILB Garrick Williams has had two big tackles today. Ags need strong play from the ILBs to control the OSU running game.
The A&M OL has given up their first sack of the season today, but so far is giving QB Ryan Tannehill a lot of time.
Markelle Martin the senior safety for OSU is yet another example of how the recruiting gurus get it wrong. He was not highly ranked coming out of high school but will play in the NFL.
Aggies are getting too cute in the red zone. Pound the ball to get down there then run too much misdirection.
Sophomore LB Shaun Lewis is the best football player on the Cowboys defense. OU LB Corey Nelson gets the media love, but Lewis makes big play after big play. Lewis reminds me of former Miami Hurricanes LB Rohan Marley.
Think the Aggie coaches regret not offering a scholarship to OSU CB Justin Gilbert?
These announcers are very poor. Brandon Weeden has played well. OSU just has not made big plays when they needed them. Weeden is taking what the defense gives him.
Aggie OLB Sean Porter had his second sack of the half. Not bad for a kid with a virus.
17-3 Aggies lead, 10:34 left in the 2nd quarter.
First time I have ever heard announcers criticize a running back for being too patient. That is like criticizing a child for saving too much money.
Am I the only one who sees the irony in the "Brightest Orange" commercial about Oklahoma State? Considering the Pac-12 just rejected them for their academics maybe they need a new commercial.
If I start sporting a mohawk haircut will I become an All American WR like Jeff Fuller and Justin Blackmon?
Aggie RB Christine Michael is starting to play like the top ranked back in the nation, which is what he was ranked by some coming out of high school.
10-3 Aggies lead at end of first quarter.
Ags have consecutive sacks to set up a 3rd and long. First time all game A&M has gotten pressure on Weeden.
Very nice coverage by Dustin Harris on Justin Blackmon.
Announcers already trotting out the officiating conspiracy theories with the Ags headed to the SEC.
7-3 Aggies, 3:07 left in the first quarter.
Time to extend the time on the DVR. This is going to be a four hour game minimum.
On two consecutive defensive series the Aggies have played both their first and second team DL in an effort to keep them fresh.
These announcers are the masters of stating the obvious.
Have to play disciplined to win. Really?
Do not like the OSU grey helmets at all. Grey helmets and grey pants are not a good look.
Funny that the announcers mentioned that this is the only top 10 match up in the nation, yet they send the C team to announce the game.
Nate Askew dropped a ball that hit him in the chest. Ags need the young guys to step up if they want to win this game.
OSU is doing a good job of keeping Cyrus Gray in check.
