The Texas A&M football team showed the rest of the country something on Saturday. The Aggies showed what their defense is capable of and they showed that new starting quarterback Zach Calzada can play.

The trend of slow scoring starts did not continue, as the Aggies racked up 14 points in their first two possessions.
It took just four total plays and 1:20 off the clock to score two touchdowns and put A&M up early, and the New Mexico Lobos never threatened.
Still, there is room for improvement even after a 34-point shutout, The Aggies' offensive line was questionable at best until the second half when they finally opened holes for the running game.
Given time to throw, and a full week of preparation, Calzada showed why the competition with the injured Haynes King for the starting job was so tight.

Calzada completed 19 of 33 passes attempts for 275 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He mostly appeared confident, calm and collected, but also held the ball too much at times. He was sacked three times.
The defense continued to shine, as the Aggies pitched their first shutout since Prairie View A&M in 2016. The defensive unit was responsible for four sacks of Lobos quarterback Terry Wilson, and 11 total tackles for losses.
Up next for the Aggie are the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Southwest Classic at AT&T Stadium on Sept. 25.
