  • Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Jake Hubenak jogs off the field following Texas A&M's 24-14 win over Nicholls State at Kyle Field in College Station Texas on Saturday

And at quarterback it appears both Jake Hubenak and Kellen Mond will play Saturday against Louisiana. Hubenak, who didn't play in the season-opening 45-44 loss to UCLA, though the Aggies blew a 34-point lead, said after the Nicholls State game he had been fully healthy throughout fall camp and the first game.

"They've been in some shootouts", A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said of the Cajuns' propensity for high-scoring games. The Aggies actually trailed 21-14 at the half after giving up a late touchdown.

COLLEGE STATION - In a season full of microcosms, Saturday's win against Louisiana-Lafayette encapsulated the 2017 version of Texas A&M's football team.

Here's who will be on the call for Texas A&M vs. Louisiana.

Texas A&M ended up outgaining Louisiana, in terms of total offense, 480-309, including a 179-93 edge in rushing yards, as well as a 301-216 advantage in passing yards.

"We're exhausted of people not thinking highly of us and we're just ready to prove that we can be really good", sophomore linebacker Tyrel Dodson said.

In the second half, A&M outgained ULL 353 to 82.

Defensively, the Aggies have controlled the line of scrimmage in dominating fashion.

Saturday's game can't be a third straight roller-coaster ride for A&M.

"We're just trying to find the best combination of starting five that will produce the best right now", junior offensive lineman Conner Lanfear said.

Texas A&M widened their advantage to 31-21 with:43 remaining in the third quarter, courtesy of a Daniel LaCamera 28-yard field goal, before Tyrel Dodson returned an interception 40 yards for a score at the 14:51 mark of the fourth quarter, to make it 38-21.
