COLLEGE STATION -- The Texas Aggie football team has had trouble finding its offense on a consistent basis. The A&M offense ranks last in the Big 12 in scoring, rushing, and passing and total offense.
While picking up the new scheme could have something to do with it, the likely culprit is injuries. Both quarterbacks Stephen McGee and Jerrod Johnson re injured their sprained shoulders in the Army game last week. McGee's wasn't quite as bad as first thought, but he's still questionable for the Aggies Big 12 opener against Oklahoma State.
Johnson's shoulder was still sore on Sunday during practice, but he was still able to throw the football effectively according to A&M Head Football Coach Mike Sherman.
Sherman is hopeful that offensive tackle Travis Schneider's ankle will allow him to return to practice sometime this week and be available to play on Saturday.
Sherman feels confident that if the offense can get some continuity going with the starters back in the lineup, then the offense will be more consistent on the field.
The Aggies will certainly need a consistent effort as Oklahoma State enters the game undefeated (4-0) and ranked 21st in this week's Associated Press College Football Poll.
A&M and Oklahoma State will kick off at 6 p.m. from Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater. The game will not be televised, but KBTX will have highlights and post game reaction during its 10 p.m. Newscast.
