Aggies riding momentum for remaining SEC schedule

COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

Texas A&M football says they feel like a brand new team after their 55-14 win over New Mexico last Saturday.

Freshman quarterback Nick Starkel was back under center for the first time since breaking his ankle in the season opener. Starkel threw for more than 400 yards in the first half before understudy Kellen Mond came in for mop up duty.

"It's definitely been good. The locker room has a lot of energy we executed well and did what we needed to do," said Aggies senior punter Shane Tripucka.

That was New Mexico and now the Aggies are back playing Southeastern Conference defenses like Ole Miss and LSU to finish out the year. That doesn't mean they're shying away from the spotlight.

"We get to go play in two great stadiums against two really good ball clubs," said senior linebacker Cullen Gillaspia, "I'm super excited to go and compete against 2 of the best teams and some of the best athletes in the country. It's SEC football, it's what we came here to play."

With coach Kevin Sumlin on the hot seat, the Aggies likely need wins against both remaining opponents to convince administrators to keep their coach.

A&M will play Oxford Nov 18 at 6 p.m..
