COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - The Texas A&M defense struggled against the Miami Hurricanes last weekend on the road which resulted in the Aggies first loss of the season.

Jimbo Fisher saw the Aggie ‘D’ give up five plays of 20 or more yards against the Hurricanes with all of those big plays coming through the air.

Hurricane quarterback Tyler Van Dyke threw for 374 yards and averaged nearly 13 yards per throw.

Entering week 3 Texas A&M ranks 98th in country in passing yards allowed.

After seeing no sacks last week, Fisher knows the problem is not only coverage, but also putting more pressure on the QB.

“We’ve got to find a way to get more pressure on the quarterback. They had a couple of deep balls on us. We’ve got the tackle and we did not tackle in space,” said Fisher.

The Aggies are 4-0 all time against the WarHawks including their 48-10 win in 2018.

Going into Saturdays’ game, A&M is a five touchdown favorite against Louisiana Monroe. Kickoff is scheduled for a 3 pm. The game will be televised on the SEC Network.
