COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The Aggies continue their three-game SEC West road swing at Mississippi State Saturday, and the Bulldogs will have a tough task in trying to slow down Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M offense.
The Aggies put 63 points on the board at Auburn last week, the most even given up by the Tigers on their home field. Despite the outburst, the offensive unit sees room to improve.
Wide receiver Uzoma Nwachukwu said, "It's almost weird because Coach Kingsbury is always talking about scoring 70. Always talking about scoring crazy numbers like 80, and to be close like that it's like ah, it's good, but we always want better, we always want more."
Kingsbury agrees, especially after his offense was not up to par against LSU. "It's still week-to-week. I think you saw that the week before we had four turnovers and lost and only scored 19 points, so it's still a week-to-week deal. It's a growing process, we haven't come close to what I think we can become."
Head coach Kevin Sumlin is also looking for more from his offense, even though they are tied with Oregon (542.88 yards per game) for fifth in the nation in total offense. "No, we're not a peak efficiency. We always have room for improvement. We've got a lot of young guys out there. There's some things we can do better."
The Aggies and Bulldogs are set to meet Saturday at 11 a.m. on ESPN.
