A&M closes gap by running the ball

November, 26, 2009
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The Aggies marched 49 yards in six plays and got the two-point conversion to make it 35-32 with 13:38 in the final quarter. The drive was set up by the Aggie defense stopping Texas deep in their own territory, giving A&M good field position.

Texas A&M running back Christine Michael rushed for 31 yards on the drive, including a 16-yard touchdown run. The Aggies have found a way to run the ball against the Longhorns' No. 1 rush defense. They now have 156 rushing yards, more than the Longhorns have given up all year.

This is getting very interesting now that it's a three-point game.
