Another Maroon Goon. No surprise here.

Texas A&M saw another dominant offensive line performance in Saturday’s 31-20 win over Auburn, and that was rewarded as senior center Ryan McCollum was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week.

The Maroon Goons allowed only one sack on the day (they lead the SEC in fewest sacks allowed) and opened holes for a season-high 313 rushing yards (they’re second in the SEC in rushing offense). The senior-laden and vastly improved line continues to be the strength that the A&M offense has built its identity around, and if the Aggies can finish 9-1 and make it into the College Football Playoff, they’ll be a big reason why.
