Before Dustin Harris' fourth quarter snag courtesy of Robert Griffin III, the Aggies hadn't recorded an interception since the first game of the season against SMU—a drought of 23 quarters.
Likewise, they've yet to force a fumble this season—their most recent coming when linebacker Sean Porter jarred a ball loose in the Texas game back in 2010.
That all changes for Texas A&M this Saturday. Jantz will be hurried into ill-advised throws by the constant pressure of Porter and reawakened linebacker DaMontre Moore.
Moore is a member of the All-Big 12 Freshman team his first year in Aggieland, who had apparently forgotten the season had started until his 1.5 sack outburst against Baylor last Saturday.
With the amount of times Iowa State will have to air it out, I see two Jantz passes landing in the hands of the Aggie secondary. After all, Jantz did toss three picks in the first half of ISU's season opener against Northern Iowa.
And although this is a total gut call, I think this will be the game Texas A&M finally tosses the fumble monkey off its back. Turnovers are karmic in football and hard work in practice eventually pays off in games. Saturday finally becomes that monster game for which this Aggie defense is long overdue.
