In focus: Texas A&MAlthough 3-0, Texas A&M finds itself out to prove something when it faces Arkansas on Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Aggies own wins over New Mexico, Utah State and UAB, a collection of teams that stand a combined 2-9. "We’re 3-0, and that’s great,” said Aggies coach Mike Sherman. "But we do keep things in perspective. I realize we haven’t played a top-20 or top-25 team. "The speed of the game is going to be greatly enhanced when we line up against Arkansas. I think I have a pretty clear perspective of where we are and where we’re trying to get. This certainly will be a big challenge for us.”
