Texas A&M's Will Gunnell Flips Fans The Double Bird

A&M last week went to Hubenak after Mond - who started strong by leading touchdown drives on two of the first three possessions - didn't do anything on four straight possessions ending in punts.

Texas A&M receiver Damion Ratley (4) catches a 76-yard pass as Louisiana-Lafayette defensive back Lorenzo Cryer (11) tries to defend in the first quarter during the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns vs. the Texas A&M Aggies at Kyle Field in College Stadium, Texas on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

With his tenure in College Station already on shaky grounds, Sumlin hasn't steadied that situation over the first two weeks of the season.

A loss here as an SEC team certainly won't help Kevin Sumlin's case to remain as the Texas A&M head coach.

Frustrations have boiled over to this week, where Texas A&M was once again heavily favored to beat an inferior opponent in Louisiana-Lafayette.

Ahmad Brooks will be badly missed by Green Bay Packers on Sunday
If there's a worry, it is the defense looked good because of Seattle's offense, which is far from explosive. Atlanta has won two straight after Green Bay took four consecutive games from the Falcons between 2011-14.

True freshman Kellen Mond, who started last week's 24-14 victory over Nicholls State, is expected to start the final tune-up for the Aggies (1-1) before opening Southeastern Conference play against Arkansas. "Not yet", Sumlin said. "Are we the team we want to be right now?" We'll see if A&M's run defense is improved. Bussey racked up 97 yards on the ground and played a critical role in A&M's fourth-quarter win against Nicholls State. "We have to keep that communication open with those guys as they play". If McCoy can't play, look for Colton Prater to shift to center after playing both tackle and guard so far this season.

And instead of letting a big lead slip away late in the game, A&M built the lead behind a group of young players.

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

"If we do our job on offense and control what we can control", Davis said, "I think we have a good chance".
