Texas A&M hit the road for the first time Thursday night to face Miami in the Orange Bowl, and came back to College Station with the first loss of the season after a 34-17 decision. The Aggies couldn't get anything going against the speedy defense of the Hurricanes, while Miami quarterback Kyle Wright completed 21 of 26 passes to lead Miami to the win.
The Aggies did have a few playmakers come up with some big plays and steady play throughout the game. Below is this week's Texas A&M Hot 6:
TEXAS A&M HOT 6
Bennett only made four tackles on Thursday against Miami, but three of those were for losses behind the line of scrimmage. Bennett has been great at taking the outside run away from opponents and he did the same against Miami's solid duo of Javarris James and Graig Cooper.
Tupe contributed 10 tackles in the game, which led the Aggies, and a sack for an 11-yard loss on a blitz. Tupe has been steady this season and was steady once again in Miami.
