The battle lines are being drawn and the faces are getting painted as the Texas A&M Aggies take on the Miami Hurricanes football team at the Orange Bowl for a midweek showdown today. This is a pivotal game for our hometown boys, for their defense will be tested early and often by the versatile running attack of Aggies quarterback Stephen McGee and running back Jorvorskie Lane. Meanwhile, when the Hurricanes have the ball on offense, they will be looking to fire on all cylinders to get to the end zone.
Miamis new head coach, Randy Shannon, is still watching for one of the quarterbacks -- fingers crossed for Kirby Freeman or Kyle Wright -- to step up his game and solidify the QB position. Nobody wants a repeat performance of last season, which marked the first time since 1995 that Miami didnt score 300 points in a season. This evenings matchup will be the last nonconference game on the schedule for UM before they enter their ACC schedule next weekend.
