Good Bull Hunting

The Texas A&M Aggies had a comfortable 38-3 lead at halftime over the SMU Mustangs. However, they were almost unable to protect their mascot/highest-ranking cadet, Reveille VIII, on the sideline.

Updates from Tuesday, September 23

According to AP (via USA Today's FTW), the cadet who made this block was named Ryan Kreider and after Brig. Gen. Joe Ramirez Jr. saw this, he rewarded Kreider with a pair of custom senior boots that cost $1,326 after tax.

After Aggies defender Nick Harvey pushed SMU's Der’rikk Thompson near the corner of the end zone, the receiver began losing control straight toward the dog. Fortunately, one of the cadets was able to make a great block to keep her safe.
