Pregame blitz: Texas A&M vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Last week, coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff seemed to put the reins on true freshman QB Kellen Mond in his first career start; Mond was asked to stay in the pocket and throw the football instead of using his legs, like he did against UCLA.

This season the Aggies are ranked 16th in rush defense after two games allowing less than 70 yards per game. "I think is he playing better than we have had in that position for a while, but he can continue to improve and that's the thing message to everybody", finished Sumlin.

"Brown is clearly serious and we're hearing the Texans are concerned they may have to blink first". "That whole week, I thought we were going to win the game".

It was a night and an image seared into the minds of Cajun fans, watching the posts go up and over the bowl end of Cajun Field not long after Britt Jackson's 30-yard interception return for a touchdown gave the Cajuns a fourth-quarter lead.

Some fans have been crying for his resignation for two years. "Until we get the right one, you have to be able to prepare for the known and adjust to the unknown".

Texas A&M running back Kendall Bussey had a breakout game against Nicholls State.

As one rival AFC general manager told PFW, "I really feel for [Texans GM] Rick Smith because we all know you never want to give in on veteran holdouts because of the disgusting precedents it sets, but in this case he's risking a playoff run and the development of a young quarterback he paid dearly for if he doesn't come up with answers soon". UL-Lafayette brings an explosive offense to Kyle Field on Saturday, including a mobile quarterback in Jordan Davis. So which defense will show up?

Here's who will be on the call for the game, which will be broadcast on SEC Network. "We could tell they were panicking a little and weren't happy with some things we were doing". After getting off to a slow start, the Aggies trailed 21-14 heading into halftime. "We have to keep that communication open with those guys as they play".

Louisiana tied it at the 14:10 mark of the second quarter, when Trey Ragas completed a 4-play, 12-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run, evening up the score at 7-7.

"I thought it was easier to make in-game adjustments and look your players in the eyes", Smart said.
