Locked On Aggies: Is Stopping Terry Wilson The Key To Beating New Mexico?

On this episode, let's take a look at Terry Wilson under center for the Lobos

Texas A&M fans might remember the name Terry Wilson. His uniform has changed, but his characteristics have remained a constant. 

Back in 2018, Wilson led Kentucky into College Station with a chance to beat the Aggies on the Kyle Field turd. He finished the evening 13 of 20 passing for 108 yards with a touchdown. 

The Aggies had six sacks against the Wildcat QB, with the last one essentially sealing a 20-14 victory in overtime.

“He’s as athletic as heck,” A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday. “If we slip up one second, he’s around the corner.”

Wilson elected to transfer this offseason to New Mexico for his final year of eligibility. The Lobos are off to a fast start at 2-0. After a victory against in-state rival New Mexico State, Wilson is hitting his stride at the right moment. 

Dual-threat quarterbacks have been a constant thus far this season against the Aggies. Kent State's Dustin Crum rushed for 60 yards on 11 carries and Colorado’s Brendon Lewis tallied 76 yards on nine.
