Multiple outlets are reporting that Texas A&M DC Mike Elko will remain with the program after interviewing for the open head-coaching position at Temple.

Elko was hired to HC Jimbo Fisher's staff last January after spending the previous year at Notre Dame. In his first season with the program, Texas A&M finished with the nation's No. 58 scoring defense, allowing an average of 26.3 points per game. Elko was the fourth-highest paid assistant in the country in 2018, drawing $1.8 million. As for where Temple might turn for their next head coach now that Elko is out of the picture, The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that Michigan DC Don Brown interviewed with the Owls on Tuesday.

Texas A&M junior P Braden Mann was named the winner of the Ray Guy Award.

Mann (5'11/190) in with the best punter of the season, here. The junior booted his way to an absurd 2,404 yards worth of punts, averaging a silly 51.1 yards per kick.
Dec 6 - 8:49 PM

Billy Liucci of TexasAgs.com reports that Missouri TE coach Joe Jon Finley will join Texas A&M to work in the same capacity.

Finley will be taking over for Tim Brewster, who left the Aggies to take over as the tight end coach under Mack Brown at UNC. The former Carolina Panther spent three years as the tight end coach with the Tigers, and prior to that worked at Baylor as an offensive quality control coach. He's considered a quality recruiter, so it's a solid replacement for Brewster and the Aggies' coaching staff.

Texas A&M redshirt junior TE Jace Sternberger caught two touchdowns and had 75 yards receiving on five catches in a 74-72 victory over LSU on Saturday.

Sternberger remains among the most productive tight ends in the country, and he finishes the regular season with 10 touchdowns. He had back-to-back two score games to end the year, and he'll look to add to that total in Texas A&M's bowl game. After that, he could be headed off to the NFL.
Nov 25 - 12:47 AM

Texas A&M sophomore WR Kendrick Rogers caught three passes for 53 yards with two scores in a 74-72 victory over LSU on Saturday in seven overtimes.

Rogers (6'3/210) my have only had three catches, but that doesn't state how big he was in this game. Both touchdowns came in overtimes, and he had two big two-point conversions, including the final one that gave the Aggies the win in what was quite easily the most entertaining game of 2018. Rogers and Texas A&M are now 8-4, and they'll be heading to a solid bowl game after this victory.
Nov 25 - 12:44 AM

Texas A&M redshirt sophomore WR Quartney Davis caught seven passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns in a 74-72 victory over LSU in seven overtimes on Saturday.

Davis was awesome, and he had the biggest catch of the regular period when he hauled in a touchdown pass with no time left on the clock to send it into overtime. While his catch totals have been inconsistent, he's been a constant in the red zone, and he's scored four touchdowns in the last three games for the Aggies. He'll try to add to that total in their bowl game, but this was an excellent effort from the talented redshirt sophomore.
Nov 25 - 12:41 AM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams carried the ball 35 times for 198 yards and two touchdowns in a 74-72 victory over LSU in seven overtimes.

Williams didn't score in the overtime, but he made a few excellent runs that put the Aggies in position to put the ball in the end zone. Simply put, there haven't been many running backs better than Williams in 2018, and the 5-foot-9, 200-pound junior now has over 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns. He gets one more chance to add to those totals, as A&M will be playing in a respectable bowl game after their eighth win of 2018.
Nov 25 - 12:38 AM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 23-of-49 passes for 287 yards and six touchdowns and ran for 42 yards and a score in a 74-72 victory over LSU in seven overtimes on Saturday.

The game of the year. Or at least the game of the regular season. This one was back-and-forth all night, and Mond originally sent the game into overtime with a touchdown strike with no time left on the clock from 19 yards out. While he had some accuracy problems early on, he was sensational in the overtime, and he moved around in the pocket and found time to complete passes in the red zone. Mond has shown big improvement in 2018, and he leads the Aggies to an 8-4 record that doesn't feature any bad losses. They'll be heading to a quality bowl game, to be certain. What a game.
Nov 25 - 12:36 AM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Saturday's 41-20 win over UAB.

Yet another beautiful performance from Williams, who has really found his groove under HC Jimbo Fisher. The 5-foot-8, 200-pound junior consistently ripped off chunk yardage on his way to averaging 8.35 YPC for the game, putting in a long run of 47 yards. Just about our only quibble, here, has nothing to do with Williams himself. For reasons unknown, Fisher had Williams taking carries with under a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, when the game was well out of hand. While he avoided picking up a garbage time injury, it was still an unwarranted risk. Looking beyond this game, Williams has now rushed for 1,326 yards and 13 touchdowns. We found ourselves consistently frustrated with his output under Kevin Sumlin, but now we are starting to see what he can do when given a competent game plan. Fun stuff. Up next on the docket for the Aggies, a Week 13 date with LSU.
Nov 17 - 10:46 PM

Texas A&M redshirt junior TE Jace Sternberger caught four passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 41-20 win over UAB.

Sternberger (6'4/250) came through with several nice catches in the second half to help put this one away in the win column. The redshirt junior notched a 25-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter and a 20-yarder in the fourth quarter. He owns a 42-729-8 receiving line for the campaign as a whole. The Aggies will wrap up their first regular-season campaign under HC Jimbo Fisher when they take on LSU next Saturday.
Nov 17 - 10:38 PM

Texas A&M sophomore G Hared Hocker (undisclosed) has returned to practice.

Hocker has missed the past two weeks with the undisclosed injury, with Keaton Sutherland and Connor Lanfear playing in the sophomore's place. Assuming there are no setbacks, it sounds like Hocker is going to be good to go on Saturday against UAB.
Nov 12 - 5:08 PM

Texas A&M redshirt sophomore Quartney Davis registered two touchdown catches and 25 yards on three receptions in a 38-24 victory over Ole Miss.

Gotta love the efficiency. Davis (6'2/200) caught both of his touchdown passes from the right arm of Kellen Mond, with the first being a 10-yarder from Mond in the third quarter. A little over 15 minutes of game time later, Davis connected with Mond on a five-yarder, and he now has four touchdowns in his last six games. We'll see if Davis is involved in the red zone again when the Aggies take on UAB next Saturday.
Nov 10 - 3:50 PM

Texas A&M sophomore DB Myles Jones was ejected from Saturday's win over Ole Miss due to targeting.

With the ejection occurring late in the fourth quarter, Jones will also be forced to sit out the first half of Texas A&M's Nov. 17 game against UAB. After accounting for 35 total tackles and one interception as a freshman, the sophomore entered Saturday's game with just two tackles and two passes defensed in eight appearances.
Nov 10 - 3:49 PM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 19-of-28 passes for 236 yards with three touchdowns and a pick in a 38-24 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Mond also added a rushing score, so it was a four-touchdown day for the talented sophomore. The last two games were a bit of an adventure -- to put it nicely -- for Mond, and while this came against one of the worst defenses in football, the signal-caller was much, much improved in this one with his accuracy, pocket presence and decision-making. When Mond plays like this, the Aggies are very difficult to beat. He will face off against UAB next Saturday.
Nov 10 - 3:45 PM

Texas A&M junior RB Trayveon Williams ran for 228 yards and a score on 31 carries in a 38-24 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Williams also caught three passes for 15 yards. An outstanding game for a player that has become one of the top tailbacks in the country. He had a long of 46, and has per usual, the 5-foot-8, 200-pound tailback was able to make the most of any hole he had with several five-plus gains to keep the Aggies on schedule. He's up to 11 rushing scores on the year, and he goes over the thousand-yard barrier for the first time as a member of A&M. Williams will face UAB next Saturday.
