Texas A&M's high-octane rushing offense lived up to its billing Saturday as the Aggies rushed for 359 yards in their 36-14 win over Nebraska.

Quarterback Stephen McGee was the catalyst of the Aggie option attack, rushing for a career-high 167 yards on 35 carries (also a career high).

Running back Jorvorskie Lane averaged 8.7 yards per carry Saturday, picking up 130 yards on 15 carries.
