Sherman Bags First Win As Aggie Head Coach

By  | 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Jerrod Johnson replaced the injured
Stephen McGee and threw three touchdown passes as Texas A&M gave coach Mike Sherman his first win with the Aggies, 28-22 over New Mexico.
Texas A&M (1-1), making its first trip to Albuquerque, survived
New Mexico's swarming defensive scheme and bounced back from an
embarrassing season-opening loss, 18-14 to Arkansas State.
Johnson completed 10-of-19 for 124 yards in place of McGee, who
sprained his right shoulder on the opening series and didn't
return. Aggies running back Mike Goodson also left with a sprained
right knee, through he briefly returned in the second half.
Rodney Ferguson had 135 yards rushing and two TDs for New Mexico
(0-2). He broke free on a 45-yard burst in the first quarter and
added a late 1-yard TD run as the Lobos rallied for two scores in
the final six minutes.
It wasn't enough to offset Johnson, who performed well under a
full day of defensive pressure, and the Lobos couldn't overcome too
many offensive mistakes.
