LAKE FOREST – There won’t be a single run, pass, block or tackle involved, but the most important matchup Sunday for the Bears and Denver Broncos as they try to get off the schneid and in the win column this season just may be between the 2018 NFL Co…

A lot has changed for Texas A&M wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon since head coach Jimbo Fisher took over the reigns in Aggieland. Now as a junior, Ausbon has stepped into a leadership role among the receiving corps after tallying 946 yards and three touchdowns in his first two seasons. This year, he’s learned to improve his suit game as well as continuing to post numbers, including 144 receiving yards and a touchdown in the Aggies’ first two games.

Poor Lamar. Texas A&M will be on a mission Saturday, and the Cardinals will take the brunt of it. The Aggie offense will want to get the running game going, while also taking shots down field after quarterback Kellen Mond’s slow start and seven dropped passes by the receivers last week. If A&M’s defense plays as well as it has so far this season, things will get one-sided rather quickly.

It’s not every week where the team’s punter is one of the most talked-about — and talked-to, given the daily gaggles of reporters surrounding his locker — players on the roster, but that’s what happened during the week after second-year punter JK Scott’s big night in Chicago, in which he delivered five punts inside the 20-yard line and boomed a clutch 63-yarder with less than 2 minutes to play.

31 Wyoming has not only been opportunistic, but the Cowboys have been efficient when given extra possessions. Wyoming has forced six turnovers this season and scored 31 points off of them. That’s more than half of the Cowboys’ point total this season, and the defense has taken care of the points itself at times as Wyoming has scored defensive touchdowns in back-to-back games. Cashing in on those takeaways has largely been the difference for Wyoming in two games they’ve won by a combined 15 points. Idaho has turned it over three times this season.
