HOUSTON (CBS-Houston) – There are several reasons why folks in College Station are extremely excited following Texas A&M’s decisive 52-28 opening win at South Carolina. Robert Cessna, longtime columnist of the Bryan College Station Eagle, stops by to visit and agrees that very few could have predicted such a dominant Aggies’ performance on opening day at the No. 9 Gamecocks in the post-Johnny Manziel era.
However, as a college football nation, Cessna also warns that we should take a ‘wait and see’ approach on just how well the Aggies will fare once they get into the thick of their SEC schedule.
Meanwhile, a star is born in sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill of Southlake Carroll. Hill became the story after completing 44-of-60 passes for 511 yards and 3 touchdowns. That performance in his debut helped Hill surpass Johnny Manziel’s single game passing record of 464 yards.
Next up on the schedule for Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies is Lamar. Should Hill duplicate his effort against the Cardinals, what will be the affect on his possible Heisman chances?
We also take a look at other Texas institutions and postulate how they might fare this weekend, especially the Longhorns. BYU visits Austin and the Longhorns after having defeated UCONN 35-10 in East Hartford. This would be a huge victory for Head Coach Charlie Strong and his Longhorns.
