SCORE: Texas A&M 28, Utah 26

RECORDS: Texas A&M 2-0, 0-0, Utah 1-1, 0-0

OFFENSE: Brandon Warfield put on quite a show in his Texas homecoming. He rushed for 181 yards and three touchdowns on 36 carries. The Utes, however, fumbled the ball nine times (losing three). QB Brett Elliott completed 18-of-40 passes for 210 yards. GRADE: C-plus

DEFENSE: An uncharacteristic inconsistent performance included the surrendering of an 80-yard touchdown run in the first half. After giving up scores in half of A&M's first six possessions, Utah's defense tightened up and allowed the Aggies to convert on only 1-of-11 series down the stretch. GRADE: C-plus.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Missed opportunities proved costly. A 39-yard field goal attempt by Bryan Borreson was wide left. The Utes missed a PAT because of a bad snap, and Elliott was stopped short on a two-point conversion try with just eight seconds remaining. GRADE: C
