College Station, TX (Sports Network) - Jerrod Johnson passed for three
touchdowns as he led the Texas A&M Aggies to a 24-17 win against the Colorado
Buffaloes in Big 12 Conference play at Kyle Field.
Johnson finished the game 15-of-31 for 214 yards and survived five sacks as he
led the Aggies (4-5, 2-3 Big 12) to their second straight win.
The Buffs (4-5, 1-4), losers of two straight and five of the last six after
opening the 2008 campaign with three consecutive triumphs, were led by Tyler
Hansen who ran for a team-best 86 yards and also threw for another 89 yards,
but was picked off twice in the losing effort.
Colorado moved out to a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when Rodney Stewart
crossed the goal line from six yards out.
A&M answered with a 39-yard field goal by Randy Bullock, a kick that was
answered by Colorado's Jameson Davis on a 30-yard effort to give the Buffaloes
a 10-3 advantage at the break.
In the third quarter the Aggies offense came alive as Ryan Tannehill reeled in
a 32-yard touchdown pass from Johnson and Jeff Fuller had scoring catches of
59 and 10 yards as well to make the score 24-10 in favor of the home team.
In the fourth period Demetrius Sumler logged a 10-yard touchdown run for the
Buffaloes, but by then it was too little, too late for the visitors in the
A&M, which controlled the ball for less than 26 minutes on the day, gained
just 94 yards on the ground in the win.
