 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Freshman quarterback Haynes King's backup started out slowly, finished precious few drives and even fumbled the football a whisker from the goal line. Sophomore Zach Calzada came up clutch in the end, though, throwing an 18-yard touchdown pass to running back Isaiah Spiller with 2:41 remaining to help fifth-ranked Texas A&M edge Colorado 10-7 Saturday. "The one thing you can say he made the plays on those drives that mattered, right there at the end," Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher said. And Fisher didn't want to hear about how his Aggies should have walloped the Buffaloes, either. "First and foremost, Colorado played a heck of a football game. We got a very good football team," Fisher said. "They were a lot of the reason why we had issues today. We can sit here and say we blame it on ourselves, but they did a really, really good job, physically and schematically. "We were fortunate to come out of that one." Unbeaten if not unscathed.

Spiller's TD gave the Aggies (2-0) their first lead on a day in which they lost their star freshman starting quarterback to a lower right leg injury and eight of their first nine drives were three-and-outs. Colorado's hopes of an upset over the 17-point favorite Aggies ended when Brendon Lewis' pass to Dimitri Stanley on fourth-and-13 from his 22 covered just 12 yards before he was smothered by a bevy of defenders. "It gives us an identity," Spiller said of the hard-fought victory. "It was our first adversity game, it was a great challenge for us." Maybe it'll give the Buffs an identity, too. - Texas A&M/AP College Football
