COLLEGE STATION TX- SEPTEMBER 09 Christian Kirk #3 of the Texas A&M Aggies breaks the tackle of Joel Dullary #12 of the Nicholls State Colonels in fourth quarter at Kyle Field

"I think our team mentally is in a pretty good place based on what's happened to them the last couple of weeks", head coach Kevin Sumlin said at Tuesday's press conference.

Christian Kirk, who has led Texas A&M in receiving in each of the first two games, is only three all-purpose yards shy of becoming the second Aggie wide receiver in school history to amass 3,500 all-purpose yards. Louisiana could be in position to sneak out of College Station with an upset win if taken lightly, while A&M needs reps against live action to forge chemistry on offense before hitting conference play.

Jordan Davis, the Cajuns' quarterback from Klein Oak, hadn't even turned a year old the last (and only) time his program beat a current SEC member, but he said another upset is quite possible - this time at Kyle Field. "Moving forward I think it's going to help us down the road".

Junior quarterback Jordan Davis has thrown for 471 yards and three touchdowns so far while also providing plenty of production on the ground. If not, the Aggies could face eight men in the box throughout when they square off with the Hogs.

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

Of all the quarterbacks on A&M's roster, the long, strong-armed Blumrick (6-5, 210) looks most like an National Football League prospect, but he's also probably a long way from being ready even for SEC play, considering his lack of game action in the past two years. "If they had done that, run it right at us, we could not have stopped them".

"I really didn't know until after the game was over - 'Oh, coach, you're right here, '" Dodson said.

"We've got to continue to develop both of them in my opinion, not just one guy", Sumlin said of his two QBs. So which defense will show up? The game kicks off at 11 am on the SEC Network. "We could tell they were panicking a little and weren't happy with some things we were doing". They surrendered 21-points in the second quarter and headed into the tunnel at halftime down by a touchdown. A&M is ramming the pigskin down the opposition's throat in the run game, putting up 289 rushing yards per game on average, which includes 382 yards against UCLA.

"Brandon had a rough night that night", Delhomme said, "and our playmakers were making plays".
