After a bit of a slow start in the first half of their game against Mississippi State, the Texas A&M Aggies seemed like they needed some kind of burst of momentum to get things going. Every game down the stretch here is important, as the Aggies still have an outside shot at a BCS at-large berth or, at the very least, another Cotton Bowl appearance.
So, yes, every big play that they can get is a plus.
They certainly got themselves one of those near the end of the first quarter of the game today.
With the game tied at seven and Texas A&M fans in attendance maybe beginning to worry that the Bulldogs may have brought their A-game today, the Aggies’ defense backed Mississippi State up near their own end zone. They eventually forced a fourth down and the punting units for both teams came on to the field.
Then, the Aggies proceeded to come right through the middle, block the punt and put two points on the board as the ball flew out of the back of the end zone:
That’s not a bad way to grab the momentum back by any means.
