Aggies Achane, Spiller Earn Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Honors

As the A&M season continues, weekly individual awards are the norm.

The Texas A&M Aggies defeated the Missouri Tigers 35-14 in Columbia last Saturday and moved up in the AP Top 25 to No. 17, and continue their hopes for a good finish to the season.

Off the win in Columbia, SPORTyler announced A&M's Devon Achane and Isaiah Spiller have earned honorable mention honors from the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award.

The running back tandem ran wild over the Missouri defense with a combined 329 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. Spiller set a season-best 168 yards rushing on 20 carries while Achane totaled 124 yards and two touchdowns.

It was the fourth 100-yard game of Spiller's season and the 14th of his career. He is now 12th all-time at A&M with 2,641 career rushing yards.

Achane eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the second time in 2021, and his two touchdowns made the game his second multi-touchdown game of the season and the third of his career.
