Texas A&M has had a difficult month. Preparing for Saturday’s Meineke Car Care Bowl against Northwestern has been a welcome distraction and the Aggies are determined to win as a tribute to both their recently fired coach and a fallen teammate.
Texas A&M has hired Houston’s Kevin Sumlin as its new coach.
The Aggies have just seven takeaways this season, which ranks 118th in the country. DeRuyter says that number is “shocking” and that he’s never had a team with so few this late in the season.
