The bye came at an ideal time for Texas A&M. Aggie defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter planned to take advantage of the extra time to game plan against Oklahoma State’s offense.
“Getting the extra time will not hurt us one bit while looking at them,” DeRuyter said. “I want us to work on being more consistent. We are not disguising our coverages and executing out of those disguises as well as I would like. We still have busted coverages. We’ve just got to get more disciplined so we aren’t getting fooled on some things.”
The Aggies are hoping to tighten up their defense heading into Thursday’s game with the Cowboys, who lead the NCAA in passing with 391.67 passing yards.
