  After slogging through an uninspired first half, Texas A&M needed a spark to get going. The Aggies found it in Leon O'Neal Jr., whose 85-yard interception return for a touchdown helped sixth-ranked Texas A&M pull away in 41-10 win over Kent State on Saturday night. "He's an Energizer Bunny," coach Jimbo Fisher said. "You've got to have that guy. He's a big part of what we do." O'Neal had two interceptions, with the first coming just before halftime when he picked off Dustin Crum's pass in the end zone. With about eight minutes left in the third, O'Neal jumped in front of a receiver for his second pick. He weaved around a couple of Kent State players and dashed untouched for the score, capping the play by diving into the end zone to make it 20-3. "When he got that pick, it lit up the whole sideline. It lit up the whole stadium," receiver Ainias Smith said. "I was like: ‘Thanks Leon, we needed that.'" O'Neal choked up when recounting his score and thanking the teammates who blocked for him. "We always talk about Pick-6's, touchdowns, stuff like that," he said. "Now that it's come to fruition, it's a big milestone for us as a DB group." - Texas AM/AP College Football
