Jimbo Fisher after Aggies' win over New Mexico: 'We're very average right now'
Texas A&M dealt with plenty of adversity in its first two games, but that wasn’t the case Saturday.
The No. 7 Aggies jumped on New Mexico early, opening up a 14-0 lead after the 1st quarter, and cruised from there to a 34-0 win to improve to 3-0 on the season.
Zach Calzada, who started at quarterback in place of an injured Hayne King, passed for 275 yards and 3 touchdowns, while All-SEC running back Isaiah Spilled added 117 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
The A&M defense, meanwhile, continued its outstanding play, allowing just 122 total yards in pitching a shutout. The Aggies have only allowed 17 points through 3 games this season.
The win marked the first 3-0 start for Jimbo Fisher since he took the A&M job, but immediately after the game he expressed displeasure with where his team is right now with its SEC opener against No. 20 Arkansas coming up next week.
“I’ve got a lot of thoughts on that,” said Fisher when asked about the Razorbacks. “We’re going to have to get a heck of a lot better and fix our issues.”
Added Fisher: “We’re very average right now.”
