That puts the Aggies at 3-0, just behind 3-1 Oklahoma, a team they are slated to March 30 in Norman, Okla.
Head Coach Brett Mills said early-season challenges have been good for his team and put them in position to win now.
"We had been changing our lineup but over the last over the last couple of weeks we got some consistency, and we're getting good chemistry, especially in the backs," Mills said. "We've been working really hard on our pattern of play and I thought tonight the kids executed extremely well."
After winning big against Sam Houston and Baylor, A&M looked good, but Mills said he felt his team was not playing well.
"The guys would tell you, they didn't play good ball," he said. "We're not being arrogant, it's just that we know we haven't reached where we need to be. We played some tough early games. We lost to a good LSU team and got beat by Arkansas State and BYU. But I thought we were pretty solid, especially against BYU. We also knew we had to learn from those tough games to play well in a rivalry game like the one we had against Texas."
And they did learn, running out to a commanding 29-0 halftime lead and not looking in jeopardy.
"We needed to set the tone early and we did that," said Mills, who got a huge game from flanker Chris Frazier, who put in several crunching tackles. "But we have more to improve on. My biggest fear as a coach is that the guys will start looking past opponents. We have spring break, and then we have to get ready for an athletic Texas Tech team. It's not over."
