    [​IMG]ARLINGTON, Texas -- The offense had its chances, but it failed to string together the game-changing drive it needed for almost the entire second half.

    Texas A&M started its last six drives with a one-possession deficit, but never seriously threatened to score, punting on each drive until the final try.

    The defense kept it alive, and the offense that pushed the Aggies to six wins last year couldn't finish the job.

    The Aggies probably played well enough to win, and even though the three turnovers in their own territory only resulted in three points for Arkansas, Aggies fans have to wonder if one of those might have ended with seven points of their own. Texas A&M never squandered any offensive opportunities deep in Arkansas territory, but those opportunities weren't there for the offense last year when the Aggies were blown out by 28 points.

    The final drive had to make Arkansas fans nervous after a pass interference call gave Texas A&M a final play inside Arkansas' 40-yard line, but Jerrod Johnson's Hail Mary was intercepted near the goal line.

    That's two consecutive losses for Texas A&M that will no doubt head back to College Station thinking it should have had. The Aggies are now 3-2 with Missouri coming to College Station for a visit next Saturday.

    I'm headed downstairs for postgame interviews. We'll have plenty more from Cowboys Stadium the rest of today.

    In the meantime, check out Missouri vs. Colorado and Utah vs. Iowa State, which are both just getting started.
