Everything Mario Cristobal said after a 17-9 loss to Texas A&M

The moment proved to be just a little too big for Miami in year one under Mario Cristobal. The Hurricanes fell in College Station to No. 24 Texas A&M 17-9 in a prime time meeting between the two programs.

Miami didn’t help themselves in the first half with Tyrique Stevenson fumbling a punt that resulted in the Aggies’ first end zone trip of the night. Andres Borregales also missed a pair of field goal attempts, one being blocked, but the Hurricanes went into the break down by just a score.

Devon Achane’s second score of the game gave Texas A&M some cushion in the second half. Miami responded with another trip into the red zone but settled for three to go down 17-6 midway through the third.

Miami’s offense stalled in Texas A&M territory again, but Borregales split the uprights for the third time of the night to cut the lead to eight midway through the fourth quarter.

The Hurricanes would get a chance to drive down the field with less than a minute left in the game but Miami couldn’t convert after a big defensive stop and the Aggies would go on to win.
