    Quick Notes:

    All four of Texas A&M's non-conference opponents this season were from the state of Texas (Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU and UTEP). A&M has not lost to a non-conference school from Texas since 1954, when Paul "Bear" Bryant lost the first game of his A&M coaching career to Texas Tech.
     
    Texas A&M leads the series between the schools 3-0.
     
    The Aggies have now scored at least 40 points in 12 straight games, the longest streak in the FBS.
