Texas A&M quarterback Hubenak to miss ULL game with injury

Texas A&M quarterback Hubenak to miss ULL game with injury

"I think our team mentally is in a pretty good place based on what's happened to them the last couple of weeks", head coach Kevin Sumlin said at Tuesday's press conference.

Unless the Aggies get some serious separation in the second half, the natives will continue to get even more restless in College Station and Kevin Sumlin's hot seat will continue at a rolling boil at best.

"We're just trying to find the best combination of starting five that will produce the best right now", junior offensive lineman Conner Lanfear said. "It wasn't that A&M was coming to town, we were going to win". "There were some personnel changes in the fourth quarter (against Nicholls) that will help us down the road". He also remembers that Texas A&M had a hard time covering wide receiver Brandon Stokley, and that his then-University of Southwestern Louisiana team relied on its defense to pull off the biggest football win in school history.

The Cajuns tied things once again at the 9:15 mark of the second quarter, when Jordan Davis hooked up with Ryheem Malone on an 8-yard touchdown pass, ending a 6-play, 37-yard drive, to knot things up, 14-14. If not, the Aggies could face eight men in the box throughout when they square off with the Hogs.

Sumlin does have plenty of upside to work with offensively, as wide receiver Christian Kirk will likely be a first round pick in the National Football League draft and running back Trayveon Williams is averaging almost eight yards per carry in the early going.

Some fans have been crying for his resignation for two years. "Are we the team we want to be right now?" They rank sixteenth in the nation so far this season in rushing defense with only 68.5 yards allowed per game, and the improved play of the linebacking corps has had a lot to do with that success.

Hubenak, who finished the Nicholls State game after Mond was ineffective, apparently has a lingering shoulder injury, Liucci said. It was unbelievably hot and humid and miserable, and we could tell they were getting exhausted.

Louisiana led at the half, 21-14, but Texas A&M outscored the Cajuns, 17-0, in the third quarter, and scored 31-unanswered points in the second half, as they went on to the 24-point win. "We knew our defense was playing well, but we knew it was going to be tough to score on them". Sumlin said only that both will play on Saturday.
