Texas A&M quarterback Hubenak to miss ULL game with injury

College football preview: Louisiana-Lafayette at Texas A&M

Louisiana hosts in-state rival ULM next week, while the Aggies have a neutral-site game in Arlington, Texas, at AT&T Stadium against SEC West foe Arkansas.

Louisiana-Lafayette update: Quarterback Jordan Davis of Klein Oak has completed 60 percent of his passes (33-of-55) in two games and is third on the team with 108 rushing yards on 22 carries.

After surviving last week's 24-14 win over Nicholls State that was much closer than it should have been, Texas A&M is still searching for improvement before the start of SEC play next Saturday. If ULL can limit big plays and maybe get a gift turnover or two, it will have a chance, though the Aggies haven't turned the ball over this year. The normally run-oriented Aggies threw 33 times that game along with 41 rushes, and Broussard said if A&M had concentrated on its running game, it's likely that then-Cajun coach Nelson Stokley wouldn't have been carried off the field afterward. Walk-on Colton Taylor of Memorial High is another option on Saturday, should Mond struggle as he did in the second half against Nicholls. "Moving forward I think it's going to help us down the road". "Not yet", Sumlin said. Not only are they losing, they're kinda getting dominated in the trenches.

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

The Aggies put the game completely out of reach at the 6:41 mark of the final quarter, Jacob Kibodi scored on a long 67-yard touchdown run, to extend the margin to 45-21. "Were there things that we improved on? Yes".

With Sumlin's job in more jeopardy than it's been during his A&M tenure, the Aggies are holding on to what happened at UCLA over the first 2 ½ quarters as hope for what can be this season. He can be a really, really, good player. A&M built a 44-10 lead late in the third quarter before the Bruins mounted a 35-point comeback, the second-largest in major college football history.

The Ragin' Cajuns are 1-63 all-time against teams that are now in the SEC.
