  12/22/21 - *DeMarvin LealJr/2022, Texas AM, 6-3, 290 (DS#2 DT) + More +

  No. 23 Texas A&M won't play in the Gator Bowl against Wake Forest on Dec. 31 because of COVID-19 issues and season-ending injuries, the team announced Wednesday. "It is unfortunate, but we just don't have enough scholarship players available to field a team," Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said in a news release. The Aggies (8-4) were scheduled to leave for Jacksonville on Sunday. The team did not provide any details on the COVID-19 issues or injuries on the team. "It is heartbreaking for our players, coaches, staff and fans that we are not able to play in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl," athletic director Ross Bjork said. "Postseason football is the pinnacle of the season and when the opportunity is lost, it hurts on many levels." "As we have learned in the last 21 months of this health challenge, the well-being and safety of our student-athletes is paramount," he continued. "Our players poured their heart and soul into this season and we appreciate their dedication as Aggies. Aggie football is on track for long-term success and we know that the best is yet to come." The Aggies had an up-and-down season where they went 4-4 in Southeastern Conference play. They beat Alabama on Oct. 9 when the Crimson Tide was ranked No. 1 but wrapped up the season with a disappointing 27-24 loss at LSU. - AP College Football

  12/14/21 - Leon ONeal Jr.Sr/2022, Texas AM, 6-0, 210 (DS#8 SS) + More +

  Texas A&M safety Leon O'Neal Jr., will declare for the NFL draft, forgoing a second senior season and he won't play in the Gator Bowl. "After many prayers and deep conversations with my teammates, family, and coaches I have decided to opt of the bowl game, forego my senior season, and declare for the NFL Draft," O'Neal tweeted Sunday afternoon. O'Neal becomes the third starter from the defense to declare for the draft along with All-American junior defensive lineman DeMarvin Leal and senior defensive tackle Jayden Peevy. Leal and Peevy also announced their intentions to enter the NFL draft via Twitter, but didn't say if they'd play in the Gator Bowl against Wake Forest on Dec. 31.

However, A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said he didn't think Leal would play in the Gator Bowl teleconference on Dec. 5. "We'll have to wait and see for sure, but I don't believe he will," Fisher said. "I'm sure he will go train and do the things he will do to get ready for the draft." Other A&M juniors who possibly could declare for the NFL draft and miss the bowl game are running back Isaiah Spiller, offensive guard Kenyon Green and tight end Jalen Wydermyer. - Bryan/College Station Eagle

  12/10/21 - Max JohnsonJr/2024, Texas AM, 6-4, 219 (DS#12 QB) + More +

  LSU starting quarterback Max Johnson announced Tuesday that he is entering the transfer portal, leaving true freshman Garrett Nussmeier as the Tigers' only scholarship quarterback. Johnson's decision comes just over a week after LSU named Brian Kelly as its new head coach. Kelly was hired away from Notre Dame to replace Ed Orgeron, who resigned effective at the end of the regular season. Johnson, a sophomore, appeared in all 12 regular-season games for the Tigers, completing 60.3% of his passes for 2,815 yards and 27 touchdowns with six interceptions. His younger brother, Jake, the top-rated tight end in the 2022 recruiting class also dropped his commitment to LSU. - Topeka Capital Journal

  2021 JOHN MACKEY AWARD FINALIST: Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M,...Wydermyer has established himself as one of the top tight ends not only in the nation, but in Texas A&M football history. He holds the all-time A&M record among tight ends in career receptions (114), receiving yards (1,444) and touchdown catches (16), while also ranking in the top 16 among all Aggies. On the season, the Dickinson, Texas native leads all SEC tight ends with 36 receptions and is second with 491 yards. - Texas A&M Football

  11/27/21 - Max JohnsonJr/2024, Texas AM, 6-4, 219 (DS#12 QB) + More +

  Max Johnson hit Jaray Jenkins with a 28-yard scoring pass down the right sideline with 20 seconds left, and LSU knocked off No. 14 Texas A&M 27-24 on Saturday night to give coach Ed Orgeron a triumphant send-off in his final game in Tiger Stadium. LSU had lost a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter and looked to be on the brink its first losing season since 1999 when Johnson, who'd been sacked six times in the second half, came alive on fourth-and-6 from the LSU 19. Johnson kept the )Tigers alive with a decisive pass over the middle to tight end Jack Bech and then hit Jenkins for a 31-yard gain. An 11-yard pass to Malik Nabers put LSU on the 28, setting up the go-ahead score three plays later and setting off a wild celebration in Death Valley while Orgeron smiled from ear-to-ear on the sideline.

LSU linebacker Damone Clark, a Butkus Award finalist, sealed the victory by sacking Aggies QB Zach Calzada twice. The victory gave LSU (6-6, 3-5 SEC) two straight wins to close the regular season as a bowl eligible team. The loss likely relegated Texas A&M (8-4, 4-4) to a less prestigious bowl while ending the Aggies chance for a first 10-win season since 2012. Orgeron, who presided over an undefeated national championship season in 2019 and has gone 11-11 since and agreed back in October to step down after this season. One of the coaches LSU was widely believed to be pursuing as a candidate to replace Orgeron is Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher, a former LSU offensive coordinator and national championship coach at Florida State who was lured to College Station by former A&M athletic director Scott Woodward, who now holds the same post at LSU. But Fisher has said emphatically that he has no plans to leave the Aggies, who have been competitive since his arrival in College Station in 2017, but have yet to seriously contend in the SEC during his tenure. - LSU/AP College Football

  11/20/21 - *Isaiah SpillerJr/2022, Texas AM, 6-0, 215 (DS#3 RB) + More +

  Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher worked all week to make sure his team didn't take Prairie View A&M lightly, especially with its regular-season finale against LSU coming up. The 16th-ranked Aggies quickly showed their coach that they heard his message loud and clear. Devon Achane and Isaiah Spiller combined for three touchdowns before halftime, and Texas A&M cruised to a 52-3 win over the Panthers on Saturday. "We didn't look ahead like LSU, LSU and just overlook PV," safety Leon O'Neal Jr. said. "That's not how we do things around here. We focused on Prairie View." Texas A&M easily bounced back from last week's loss at Ole Miss. Prairie View (7-3), an FCS school that plays in the SWAC, just couldn't keep up with the Aggies (8-3). "Our guys went out and played well and did what we were supposed to do," Fisher said. Texas A&M led 38-0 after a dominant first half by Achane and Spiller. It also limited Prairie View to 2 yards passing before the break.

Moose Muhammad grabbed a 30-yard TD pass from Zach Calzada on Texas A&M's first possession of the third quarter, making it 45-0. The Panthers got on the board on a 25-yard field goal by Luis Reyes on the next drive. Backup quarterback Blake Bost then took over for A&M with about 5 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter. Achane and Spiller combined for 115 yards rushing in the first two quarters and didn't run the ball after halftime. "They're great players and had very efficient days," Fisher said. "They started everything off for us perfectly." Prairie View graduate transfer Jawon Pass had just one completion and lost a fumble that the Aggies returned for a touchdown before being benched for Trazon Connley. He didn't fare much better, completing just one pass for 7 yards and rushing for 41 yards. - Texas A&M/AP College Football

  Micheal Clemons scored the game's only touchdown on a 24-yard fumble return early in the fourth quarter, and No. 13 Texas A&M beat No. 12 Auburn 20-3 on Saturday. Clemons' scoop-and-score came after defensive tackle Jayden Peevy poked the ball away from scrambling Auburn quarterback Bo Nix. Clemons, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound defensive end, picked up the ball and sprinted to the end zone, diving to the ground after he crossed the goal line. Zach Calzada finished 15 of 29 for 192 yards for Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference), shaking off an apparent injury to his non-throwing shoulder in the third quarter. His performance was was good enough for the Aggies to survive a defensive battle between the two highest-ranked two-loss teams in the country.

Auburn (6-3, 3-2) had its four-game winning streak in College Station snapped. Calzada woke up the crowd of 109,835 - the second-largest in Kyle Field history - with a 49-yard completion to Caleb Chapman late in the third quarter, setting up a 29-yard field goal by Seth Small that gave the Aggies a 6-3 lead. Small put the Aggies up 9-3 with a 47-yard field goal with 13:40 remaining before the Aggies' defense finally found the end zone. Small connected again from 37 yards with 3:15 remaining. Small opened the scoring midway through the first quarter on a 21-yard kick, and Auburn answered with Anders Carlson's 32-yard field goal late in the quarter. Both Small and Carlson missed midrange field-goal attempts that would have broken the 3-3 tie. - Texas A&M/AP College Football
