Texas A&M at Baylor

Texas A&M brings a re-vamped offense into Baylor in Week 11.

Texas A&M offense vs. Baylor defense
• Aggies QB Ryan Tannehill has brought consistency to the offense since taking over as the starter two weeks ago, though he has had occasional communication breakdowns with some ofhis receivers and has held the ball too long at times. Like former starter Jerrod Johnson, Tannehill can extend plays with his feet and he has been more accurate than Johnson. Tannehill faces a Baylor pass defense that's been one of the most porous in the FBS, and top Bears CB Chance Casey has missed the past two games with a leg injury and is not listed on this week's depth chart. The Aggies have the weapons to get the best of Baylor's pass defense even if Casey plays, though. WR Jeff Fuller can beat any of Baylor's corners one-on-one thanks to speed that will allow him to stretch the field and the strength to make plays underneath in traffic. The attention Fuller draws will open up the middle, where WR Ryan Swope can produce after the catch, and also has a trio of talented tight ends in Nehemiah Hicks, Hutson Prioleau and Michael Lamothe.
