Brown: Three takes from Aggies' Texas Bowl win over Cowboys

HOUSTON — Here are three quick takes from Texas A&M’s 24-21 win over No. 25 Oklahoma State in the Texas Bowl on Friday:

• Spiller shines: A&M’s offense was inconsistent at best Friday. The Aggies’ saving grace was freshman running back Isaiah Spiller, who showed better vision finding running gaps. He rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.

• Defense does enough: When defensive tackle Justin Madubuike said he would skip the Texas Bowl and enter the 2020 NFL draft, many wondered if the Aggies’ defense would have the same success sans its defensive MVP. A&M’s defensive unit stood tall Friday, keeping Chuba Hubbard and the Cowboys at bay while the Aggie offense found some traction. A&M’s third-and-1 stop of Hubbard late in the third quarter was a huge momentum shifter.

• Shiny finish: Let’s be honest — an 8-5 record considering A&M’s 2019 schedule is commendable.
