Jerrod Johnson broke Texas A&M’s career record for total offense, and backup Ryan Tannehill threw three touchdown passes to help the Aggies roll past hapless Kansas 45-10 Saturday night.
Johnson, a senior who’d been having turnover problems during a three-game Aggie losing streak, started the game and scored on a 3-yard TD run for a 14-3 lead in the first quarter. With 139 yards passing and 28 rushing, he raised his career total to 8,888 yards, snapping the record of 8,876 Reggie McNeal compiled from 2002-05.
Tannehill, who has played mostly wide receiver his first three years at A&M and had thrown only 13 passes, replaced Johnson in the second quarter and led the Aggies (4-3, 1-2 Big 12) on two quick scoring drives for a 31-10 halftime lead. He also scored on a 6-yard run in the fourth quarter to put A&M on top 45-10.
The Jayhawks (2-5, 0-3) have been outscored in their last three games 159-24.
