COLLEGE STATION, Texas—For much of Saturday’s game, Auburn’s defense stood toe-to-toe with the Texas A&M Aggies despite being without nickel Keionte Scott going into the game and losing safety Zion Puckett during the contest. In the end it wasn’t enough as the group ran out of gas in the second half with Max Johnson coming off the bench to provide a spark for the Aggies in the 27-10 loss for the Tigers.

Streak busters out in full force
Joey Menke ran for more tnan 100 yards, including a 73-yard touchdown run, to help Juniata get back in the win column. In last week’s edition of Quick Hits, the panel was presented with an opportunity to pick a long streak of some sort to end. While Quick Hits is intended to be a primer for that weekend’s Division III action, even I have to admit that it is a rare occasion that Quick Hits appears to predict the next day’s action as well as it did when many long streaks found their end.
