Aggies with their first lead off the evening 7-3 didn’t hold up as long as they may have liked as Wildcat’s Josh Davis takes the hand off from 17 yards out for a touchdown, its followed with a missed extra point.
Logan Bonner 6 of 19 for 62 yards 2 interceptions only one part of the Aggies troubles as the run game was being suffocated by Wildcat’s defense as the boo’s reign down from the Aggies faithful of the blue. With 22 seconds before the half 2nd and 8 to go from the 8-yard line run up the middle no gain. Time out Aggies bring up 3rd goal Logan Bonne rolling to his left throws for the end zone, and it’s picked off huge, missed opportunity there to go up by 1 heading in the locker room plenty of football left yet.
