Jimbo Fisher talks South Carolina, says defensive consistency is a must for A&M
Texas A&M has been arguably the biggest disappointment in college football thus far in 2022.
The Aggies started the season ranked 6th in the country but find themselves sitting at 3-3 at its midway point.
After being off this past Saturday, A&M will look to get back on track Saturday night at South Carolina
Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday during the weekly SEC coaches teleconference that consistency on the defensive side of the ball will be crucial for his team in the second half of the season
“We just have to keep being consistent in the run game, pass game, getting off the field on third down,” Fisher said “… We did a good job last game of creating turnovers. … Hopefully we can keep getting back and playing better.”
Fisher was also asked Wednesday about the 8-0 advantage that Texas A&M has over South Carolina in the aeries. Fisher quickly dismissed that mark.
“It’s the next game,” Fisher said. “Each year never affects the next year. … You have to earn your victory each week. … We don’t ever speak on that.”
Fisher said he’s far more concerned about playing a team that won at Kentucky in its last game out.
“Going on the road and getting a big win there is really tough,” said Fisher of South Carolina’s win in Lexington. “They did a good job of keeping Kentucky down. … Did a good job in the pass game against them. …. They did a great job of being fundamentally sound and not beating themselves.”
Saturday’s matchup between the Aggies and Gamecocks is set for 7:30 p.m. (ET) and will be televised by the SEC Network.
