DALLAS (FWAA) – With their 9-6 win over No. 9 Nebraska, the
Texas A&M Aggies (8-3) are the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National
Team of the Week for games of the weekend of Nov. 20.
Gray ran for 137 yards in his fifth straight 100-yard game and
Randy Bullock's third field goal with 3:02 left in the game
provided the margin of victory for the Aggies. Gray also added a
career-high 65 receiving yards.
Gray became the first Texas A&M running back to string
together five straight 100-yard games since 1990 as the Aggies
have won eight regular-season games for the first time since
2006. Their five-game conference winning streak is the school's
longest since 1996.
"The consequences of winning are the expectations get
higher," head coach Mike Sherman said after the game. "We jumped
over another hurdle and have taken another step. We still have
another step to take."
