Nebraska football blown out by No. 2 Michigan 45-7

The Huskers fall to 2-3 on the season.

The Huskers entered the ultimate storm of the 2023 season, hosting No. 2 Michigan in a David and Goliath showdown. But the Wolverines’ first touchdown, a helmet catch from Roman Wilson, showed how stacked the cards were against Nebraska as it was blown out 45-7.

The Husker’s lone touchdown came in the fourth quarter. Senior receiver turned running back Josh Fleeks took his only handoff of the game and went 74 yards for a touchdown. Fleek’s only run of the game made him the team’s leading rusher, as the offense rushed for just 106 total yards. Heinrich Haarberg started once again for Nebraska at quarterback, finishing 14-of-25 with 199 passing yards.

This added to the offense’s total of 305 yards in the game. However, 126 came in the fourth quarter, with 74 yards coming from Fleeks’ touchdown run. In the first three quarters, Michigan tallied 368 yards on offense, leading to five touchdowns. The Wolverines ended the day with 436 total yards on offense, with 249 yards on the ground, the most Nebraska’s surrendered all season.

The Huskers fall to 2-3 on the season, but their most challenging game of the season has now passed them. Nebraska will travel to Champaign, Illinois, to face off against the Fighting Illini. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on Friday night and can be viewed on FS1.

As it starts to cool off in the Lone Star State, Texas A&M’s pitching staff is heating up

Texas A&M will be entering the 2023 season with a pitching roster full of power, as several pitcher are clocking 95mph or faster

If you were to take a poll of the three top issues the Aggie baseball team had last year, the first two would be about pitching. There was a point during the season when the Texas A&M starting pitchers could not make it past the 3rd inning without being pulled.

The pitching also took another blow during the off-season when former D1 Baseball’s Assistant Coach of the Year (2017) Nate Yeskie was pouched by LSU. Needing to replace his pitching coach, Jim Schlossnagle hit the pavement to find a replacement, and he did just that.

Regarding innovation and development, few up-and-comers are as respected as the new Aggie pitching coach, Max Weiner. That hire is paying early dividends that are starting to show up just in time for fall ball.

I can’t wait to see how much the pitching improves over the course of the year, and a big reason why is seeing how the top transfer in the class, Braden Montgomery, spoke about his experience so far with coach Weiner.

“It’s awesome I love that guy. He’s the best I’ve never seen someone approach pitching in the way that he does, and I love it. He makes throwing fun.”

I get the feeling this will be a very exciting 2023 campaign with a College World Series appearance.

How to watch: Texas A&M – Arkansas football game

The Aggies will take on the Arkansas Razorback in the Southwest classic in Jerry world this weekend

Texas A&M (3-1, 1-0 SEC) will host the Arkansas Razorbacks (2-2, 0-1 SEC) at AT&T Stadium on Saturday in Arlington.

This rivalry’s history dates back to 1927, with Sunday being the 80th contest between the teams. Aggies held the edge over the past decade, winning 9 out of the 10, including a thriller last season.

Arkansas talented QB KJ Jefferson will look to get his team back on track against the Aggies, who are riding a two-game winning streak behind a very balanced offensive and defensive performance over those games.

This, no doubt, will be a hard-fought game that will give the winner a much-needed SEC victory in a league that appears to be wide open for the taking.

Texas A&M’s 2023 regular-season home schedule has contests against ULM, Auburn, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi State, and ACU.

The Aggies’ Road schedule features games at Miami, Arkansas, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and LSU.

Social Media reacts to five-star athlete Terry Bussey’s commitment to Texas A&M

Five-star speedster Terry Bussey’s commitment to Texas A&M brought out the reactions from social media

Good news during the week always makes the sunshine a little brighter, and Aggie fans are rejoicing, knowing their team just got a little better next season. Jimbo Fisher reeled in the nation’s top 20-ranked player, Terry Bussey, on Thursday afternoon.

The five-star athlete confirmed his commitment to Texas A&M by announcing that he has chosen the Aggies over LSU and Oklahoma.

After the Aggies had a less-than-inspiring game against Miami in week two, some fans reacted fairly to how that loss might start to lose out on top recruits.

Fortunately for the Aggies, Terry has decided to keep his commitment and can worry about having a great senior season before heading to Aggieland. Below are some of the best reactions from social media to the announcement.

Assessing Texas A&M’s QB room after Conner Weigman’s season-ending injury

The QB room took a blow with the loss of Conner Weigman, but they are well prepared with veteran Max Johnson

What Aggie fans thought was more of a 3-4-week injury for Conner Weigman turned out to be season-ending. It was officially announced Wednesday morning that Conner Weigman’s ankle injury is on a weight-bearing bone that will have him out for months instead of weeks.

Veteran southpaw Max Johnson becomes the Aggies’ starting quarterback with Conner out for the remainder of the season. Johnson is more than capable of leading this team and has shown it multiple times since he arrived on campus. He will also be an excellent resource for Weigman as he navigates his injury, as Johnson’s season was cut short last year due to a hand injury, allowing Wiegman to finish the season as the starting QB.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Max was the obvious choice when Weigman went down, but the next question was a little bit of a mystery. Who will back up Max? The two choices that appeared as front runners on paper are sophomore Fresno State transfer Jaylen Henderson and true freshman Marcel Reed.

Henderson is an interesting option and has some action against ULM this year, but he only has five games under his belt after two years with the Bulldogs. However, he is a dual-threat athlete with good size, standing at 6’3″ and 220 pounds.

The other option would be true freshman Marcel Reed. He is a long shot for two reasons. First, a few other QBs, like Henderson, are on the roster. Jimbo might try so they do not have to put any games against Reed’s redshirt. Second, he needs to get bigger and stronger for SEC play, as he is currently 6’2″ but 180 pounds. The talent is undeniable, with the four-star prospect being named Mr. Football in Tennessee and leading his team to multiple state championships.

We aren’t going to leave you hanging, though, because Jimbo has already decided to go with Jaylon Henderson as the primary backup going forward. That doesn’t mean we won’t see Reed this season, but if everything works out as Jimbo hopes, Reed can continue to sit, grow, and make a push for playing times next season.

Best Photos: Top Aggie performance in Week 3 of the NFL season

Texas A&M was well represented in Week Three of the NFL, and we have some of the best photos for you to check out

Football season is in full swing, and we are almost a quarter of the way through the regular season. As we look forward to the rest of the games this week, I’d like to take some time to recognize a few top week three performances from Aggies in the NFL.

First on the list is the Miami running back and former Texas A&M speedster De’Von Achane. He set the interwebs on fire with his breakout game against the Denver Broncos where he scored multiple times displaying his world-class speed and vision. Here are his stats from the 70-20 win over the Denver Broncos

  • 18 carries / 203 yards / 11.3 avg / 2 touchdowns
  • 4 catches / 30 yards / 7.5 avg / 2 touchdowns

Next, we have Myles Garrett, the 2017 No.1 overall pick to the Cleveland Browns. Just like Achane, he had social media ablaze over the weekend with his dominate game versus the Tennessee Titans. He was causing so much trouble against the assigned two tight ends to block Garrett. Here are his stats from Sunday’s victory.

  • 5 tackles / 3.5 sacks / 1 forced fumble

Last, we have a pair of wideouts that had solid games, but their teams came up empty. Mike Evans and Christian Kirk each scored a touchdown last Sunday and Monday, but it was not enough to help propel their team into the victory column. You can check their stat lines below.


  • 5 catches / 60 yards / 12 avg / 1 touchdown


  • 4 catches / 54 yards / 13.5 avg / 1 touchdown

Another great week for theses former Aggies and you can check out some the best photos from week three.

Social Media reacts to Myles Garrett’s big game last Sunday

Former Aggie star Myles Garrett turns it up in week three of the NFL season with a strong game against the Titans

The phrase “War Daddy” in football has existed for decades. It’s something Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones harped on ever since Demarcus Ware was released until Micah Parsons set the league on fire his rookie year.

Another we could use would be “Game Wreaker,” and that’s what Myles Garrett has been his entire football career. The perennial Pro Bowler started off a little slow, but unfortunately for his fellow Aggie and current Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Garrett turned up the heat.

The offensive line had no answer for Brown’s former number-one pick as Garrett harassed the Titans all game long. He finished the game with five tackles, 3.5 sacks, and one forced fumble en route to a 27-3 Browns victory.

He is back in the early conversation for defensive player of the year with T.J. Watt and Micah Parsons. Below, you can check out how social media reacted to Garrett’s dominant day.

Social Media reacts to De’Von Achane’s big day

Social media lit up during the Miami versus Denver game on Sunday with De’Von Achane being a major topic

Life is looking good in Miami right now for De’Von Achane. The former Texas A&M speedster showed potential during training camp but was hampered by a minor shoulder injury in an early preseason game.

Fast forward to Week three of the NFL season and Achane’s breakout day. As Texas A&M fans we are used to seeing Achane have big games, and Sunday was no different. He was virtually unstoppable putting up 233 total yards and four touchdowns.

Miami was the talk of the weekend after their historic 70-20 beatdown of the Denver Broncos and Achane put the league on notice. He led the team in the following categories on Sunday.

  • Carries – 18
  • Yards – 203
  • Average – 11.3
  • Long – 67

Achane’s speed was on full display along with the rest of the Miami Dolphins track team and I’m looking forward to season full of highlights the former Aggie tailback. Below you can find some of the best reactions from social media.

Best Photos: Texas A&M 27-10 win over the Auburn Tigers

Texas A&M pulled away from Auburn in the second half behind the arm of Max Johnson

Texas A&M was in a nail-biter against the Auburn Tigers early when starting QB Conner Weigman suffered an ankle injury. Insert backup QB Max Johnson. The Aggies needed a spark after Weigman went down, and Johnson was able to steer the ship back on course.

After Johnson settled into the game, he threw for 123 yards and two touchdowns, with one being to his little brother Jake Johnson. Evan Stewart looks like a top wideout in the SEC, contributing 50 yards and a touchdown while dealing with lingering injuries.

A pleasant change we all hoped the see was the defensive pressure all game long on the Auburn quarterbacks. DJ Durkin must have heard the rumblings of people wanting to kick him to the curb despite Jimbo’s confidence re-assertion.

It paid for the defense this week, totaling seven sacks, and held the Tigers under 200 yards of offense on their way to a 27-10 victory on Saturday.

Below, you can check out some of the best Saturday game photos.

Nebraska football takes down Louisiana Tech 28-14

The Nebraska football team hosted its second game of the season on Saturday afternoon.

The Nebraska football team hosted its second game of the season on Saturday afternoon. After taking down Northern Illinois to improve to 1-2, the Huskers welcomed in Louisiana Tech. Though Nebraska snatched win number two for the 2023 season, it was closer than last week’s victory, walking away with a 28-14 win.

Heinrich Haarberg started for Nebraska for the second straight week and led the Huskers both in the pass and ground games. Haarberg went 8-of-17 in the air for 107 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 157 yards and one touchdown off 19 carries. Haarberg’s touchdown run came off a huge 72-yard option, which put Nebraska up 28-7 with over 11 minutes to go in the game.

Anthony Grant and Thomas Fidone II also found their way into the endzone for the second straight week. Grant scored on the ground off a two-yard run, adding to his 135-yard rushing on the day. Fidone had only one catch in the game but made a big one, scoring a 29-yard touchdown.

Billy Kemp IV finished as the top receiver for the Huskers, hauling in five catches for 62 yards. Kemp also scored Nebraska’s first touchdown of the game off a jet sweep, which came after a fake field goal by the Huskers. Louisiana Tech responded quickly to the score, running in for a touchdown on its next drive.

Nebraska’s defense, however, delivered another big showing in the run game, holding the Bulldogs to 46 total yards. The Huskers did surrender 292 passing yards, 146 of them coming in the fourth quarter, which led to Louisiana Tech’s second touchdown. Another significant factor in the game was the Bulldogs’ penalties. Louisiana Tech surrendered 12 penalties for 100 yards, which halted many of its drives and even kept some of Nebraska’s drives alive.

The Huskers improve to 2-2 on the season but face a significant task next week as they welcome in No. 2 Michigan. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. and can be viewed on FOX.
