Aggie Football Moves to 2-1 with 48-10 Win Over ULM

(Source: Texas A&M Athletics)

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Kellen Mond ran for two touchdowns and threw for a third to give Texas A&M a 48-10 win over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday night.

Mond had a 7-yard scoring run in the second quarter and the Aggies returned a blocked field-goal attempt for a touchdown to build a 24-10 halftime lead.

Mond scrambled nine yards and hopped into the end zone untouched for his second score midway through the third quarter to extend the lead to 21 points. He connected with Jace Sternberger on a 20-yard touchdown pass that made it 41-10 with about eight minutes left.

Trayveon Williams had 128 yards rushing and Texas A&M (2-1) bounced back after losing to No. 2 Clemson 28-26 last week.

Mond, who threw for a career-high 430 yards last week, finished with 210 yards passing and 67 yards rushing.

Caleb Evans threw for 225 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Louisiana-Monroe (2-1).

The Aggies took a 7-0 lead on a 2-yard touchdown run by Williams on their first possession. He had five carries for 49 yards to power the drive.

Louisiana-Monroe added a field goal before Mond’s first touchdown, where he pulled two defenders with him into the end zone, pushed the lead to 14-3 early in the second quarter.

ULM used a 44-yard reception by Marcus Green to move deep into Texas A&M territory but the Warhawks came away empty-handed when Daylon Mack blocked a field-goal attempt and Tyrel Dodson returned it 78 yards for a touchdown which pushed the lead to 24-3. Mack’s block sent it right into Dodson’s hands and he was able to dash down the field untouched.

Evans then orchestrated another long drive for Louisiana-Monroe which featured a 34-yard completion. The Warhawks got within 24-10 at halftime when he capped that drive with a 2-yard TD pass to R.J. Turner with four seconds left in the second quarter.
