Texas A&M rushes past Louisiana-Monroe

Sep 16, 2007 - 3:47 AM COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Ticker) -- Texas A&M wasn't about to put itself in position for another triple-overtime game.

Jorvorskie Lane and Jerrod Johnson scored two touchdowns apiece as the 25th-ranked Aggies routed Louisiana-Monroe, 54-14, for their 10th straight non-conference win on Saturday.

Last week, Texas A&M outlasted visiting Fresno State, 47-45, when the Bulldogs failed to connect on a two-point conversion pass at the end of the third extra session.

In that game, Lane rushed for 121 yards and four touchdowns - two in the extra sessions - for Texas A&M.

On Saturday, the Aggies (3-0) scored on nine of their 10 possessions and amassed 547 yards, by far their best offensive showing of the season.

Texas A&M rushed for six touchdowns and 310 yards.

Lane scored from five yards out on the Aggies' first drive, and his one-yard run gave Texas A&M a 17-7 lead early in the second quarter.

Johnson scored from seven yards out in the third quarter to give the Aggies a 41-7 lead, and he followed that with a 26-yard score in the fourth.

"This was a very solid game. I thought we played well in all phases," Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione said.

"You need to remember this club (Louisiana-Monroe) had not committed a turnover this season. It was important to have this type of game with a short week ahead of us. I am always pleased to get a lot of players into the game."

Mike Goodson, who led all Texas A&M rushers with 113 yards, scored from seven yards out in the second quarter and Keondra Smith rushed for a five-yard score to cap the scoring in the fourth.

Texas A&M quarterback Stephen McGee tossed a 20-yard touchdown pass to Kerry Franks, giving the Aggies a 34-7 lead in the third quarter.

"I really have to give credit to the big guys up front," McGee said. "They gave me a lot of time today and the receivers did a good job of running their route. I was just pleased with our overall play tonight. We executed very well."

Calvin Dawson ran in from one yard out to score his second touchdown in as many weeks for Louisiana-Monroe (0-3). The score tied the game at 7-7 in the first quarter.
