Texas A&M came out swinging in the first half with 38 points and 342 total yards of offense.
Quarterback Nick Starkel looked poised before Kellen Mond took over as the rain drops started to fall with the Aggies already up 24-3.
Trayveon Williams was the main highlight reel of the half, racking up 188 yards on the ground including a 72-yard scamper. Keith Ford added another 77 yards and together the pair totaled five touchdowns in the first half
Yet, the Internet wasn’t so sure about the success of the team from College Station. The “September Aggies” have been hyped before and those behind a keyboard mixed skepticism with tempered optimism. Here’s a sampling of what was said in the first half.

Never, ever bet against September Texas A&M. The Aggies are one of college football's teams every fall until they play Bama.

UCLA fans already trying to beat traffic… not good for Mora.

The annual slobbering over Texas A&M by the national media has commenced. Give it four weeks.

Just gotta keep playing and applying pressure now if you're A&M. Don't let them breathe.
