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