Grading the Aggies: Texas A&M 24 Oklahoma State 23

The first half was nothing short of a disaster, but the second half saw Texas A&M record the largest second half comeback in school history as the Aggies beat Oklahoma State 24-23 at Kyle Field Saturday. Running back Jorvorskie Lane narrowly missed a touchdown rushing, receiving and passing. Click here to see how Lane and the rest of the Aggies graded in the win over OSU.

Quarterback: B

If it hadn't been for a dropped pass, Stephen McGee would have gone for over 200 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. That being said, McGee had a bad first half, and came back in the second to lead the Aggies to a win. He was solid in his decision making and threw for 169 yards on 11 of 20 passing and one touchdown. He also ran for 43 yards on nine carries.

Running backs: A -

If there is any doubt on who the MVP of the Aggies is halfway through the season, Jorvorskie Lane put that to rest Saturday. He rushed for 77 yards, had 35 yards in the passing game and threw for 49 yards on a halfback pass. He was one-yard away from the trifecta of a passing, rushing and receiving touchdown. He accounted for all three of A&M's scores. Mike Goodson wasn't nearly as effective as he only had 28 yards on 11 carries.

Offensive line: B +

The line is starting to resemble the group that everyone thought the Aggies would before the season. The Aggies, however, only managed 150 yards in the rushing game, but when they needed yards on third and short and also on a crucial fourth and one the line came through in a big way.
