Kelly Starnes — THE BATTALION

1. Hill breaks 1,000: Kenny Hill went 20-for-31 through the air Saturday for 300 yards and four touchdowns and has totaled 1,094 passing yards on the season. Hill’s performance made him the first Aggie quarterback to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in just three games. In contrast, Johnny Manziel totaled 984 passing yards through three games in 2013.
2. Myles Garrett ties record: Freshman defensive end Myles Garrett tied the A&M freshman record for sacks in a season at 5.5 after registering 2.5 against the Owls. Garrett is tied with former A&M players Sam Adams and Damontre Moore and is also on pace to surpass former South Carolina defensive end Jadaveon Clowney’s SEC freshman record of eight sacks.
3. Rice outgains Aggies in total yards: For the second straight year, the Owls outgained the Aggies in a losing effort inside of Kyle Field. Rice totaled 481 yards, while A&M had 477. Rice recorded 509 yards last season, and A&M held the Owls to just 10 points Saturday after giving up 31 in 2013.
4. Students set record attendance: For the second straight week, the 12th Man set an NCAA record for student attendance with 39,271, breaking last week’s record of 38,800.
5. Steady climb in the polls: The Aggies continued their climb in the national polls, moving up a spot each in the Associated Press and Coaches Polls to No. 6 and No. 7, respectively. There are eight SEC teams ranked in the top 25 in both polls.
