Texas Vs. Texas A&M Score: Aggies Take 16-7 Lead Into Halftime Against Longhorns

The match up between Texas and Texas A&M turned sloppy in the second as turnovers helped fuel some solid defensive play by both teams. When the smoked cleared, the Aggies took a 16-7 advantage heading into halftime. 

Texas A&M struck first in the second when Randy Bullock kicked a career-long 52 yard field goal to extend the Aggies lead to 13-0. After a stop by the A&M defense, Dustin Harris muffed the ensuing punt to give the Longhorns their best field position of the day. 

The Longhorns didn't waste any time reaching into their bag of tricks as Jaxon Shipley caught the Aggies defense off guard with a 41 yard scoring pass to Blaine Irby cutting the lead to 13-7. Ryan Tannehill threw an interception on Texas A&M's next play but Irby fumbled it right back. Bullock added his third field goal of the game to extend the lead to 16-7.

The offensive numbers aren't pretty for either team. Case McCoy is 9-16 for 79 yards in the first half. The Longhorns' running game has been non-existent with Malcolm Brown running the ball 10 times for just eight yards. 

It has also been a struggle for Ryan Tannehill who has completed 7-22 for 82 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Ben Malena got the start for the injured Cyrus Gray and has 11 carries for 46 yards and a touchdown reception.
