COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- When the GPS Myles Garrett wears during practice let Kevin Sumlin know he was running almost 22 mph on Wednesday, Texas A&Ms coach knew his star defensive end was finally healthy.On Saturday Garrett showed that what he can do when he isnt ailing, finishing with a career-high 4 1/2 sacks to help No. 25 Texas A&M get back on track with a 23-10 win over UTSA.Twenty-two mph is ridiculous. I hadnt seen that in a while, Sumlin said. He was smiling. He was bouncing around and you could just tell by his face because he hasnt been in a good mood. Hes been frustrated.Jake Hubenak threw for 248 yards and a touchdown to help the Aggies (8-3; No. 23 AP) get a victory they desperately needed after consecutive losses to Mississippi State and Mississippi ruined their shot at the College Football Playoff.Garrett had missed two games and was limited in several others because of a high ankle sprain. He finished with eight tackles, broke up a pass and forced a fumble. Instead of limping as he has been in recent weeks, Garrett was harassing UTSAs two quarterbacks all game.It was great to finally be able to move and get off close to how I wanted to, he said. I just demonstrated what level I can play at when Im close to being healthy.He further showed his ankle was fine when he batted down a pass in the second quarter and celebrated with a spirited dance. He had another big play in the fourth quarter when he sacked Jared Johnson to force a fumble, which A&M recovered.Garrett has 8 1/2 sacks this season to give him 32 1/2 for his career, making him the eighth player in Southeastern Conference history with at least 30 career sacks. His 4 1/2 sacks on Saturday were second in school history behind a five-sack day by Alex Morris in 1987, and he moved in front of Hall of Famer Reggie White for sixth-most career sacks in SEC history.They are phenomenal at the defensive end position, UTSA coach Frank Wilson said.Sumlin raved about Garrett playing through his injury. He was especially impressed with his work considering he will likely be one of the top picks if he declares for the NFL draft.A guy that has as bright a future as he has to play in a situation where he could have just said: `Im going to save myself until Im ready to go, Sumlin said. It says a lot about what kind of person he is ... what kind of teammate he is and how much he cares about this team and wanting to win.The Roadrunners cut the lead to 3 points early in the second quarter after a one-handed touchdown grab by Josh Stewart. The Aggies then scored the next 13 points, capped by a 47 yard run by Trayveon Williams to make it 23-7 in the third quarter.UTSA (5-6) was led by Johnson, who threw for 186 yards and a touchdown.THE TAKEAWAYUTSA: The Roadrunners, who have had a football team only since 2011, showed theyve made a lot of progress by keeping things close. But in the end they just arent yet on the level to deal with the size and speed of a team like Texas A&M.TEXAS A&M: The Aggies did what they were supposed to do against a lesser opponent, but Hubenak and the offense will need to be sharper when they return to SEC play next week.Hes been effective for what weve asked him to do, Sumlin said. His biggest characteristic right now is hes finding the playmakers.CHASING 1,000Williams had 11 carries for 80 yards to leave him 44 yards shy of becoming the first true freshman at the school to rush for 1,000 yards. Sumlin said Williams was a bit frustrated in the first half when he couldnt get much going and the coach told him if he was patient he would break a big run on Saturday. After his touchdown carry he said to Sumlin: I have to listen more.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Aggies could move up a couple of spots in the poll after losses to a handful of teams ahead of them on Saturday, but dont look for them to make too much of a jump from this non-conference victory.UP NEXTUTSA: The Roadrunners will look to become bowl eligible for the first time when they host Charlotte on Saturday.TEXAS A&M : The Aggies face a quick turnaround, wrapping up the regular season Thursday night when they host No. 16 LSU. Wayne Ellington Jersey . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. Glen Rice Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. . Nine days before the opening ceremony, organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said Wednesday that Sochi is "fully ready" and will deliver safe, friendly and well-run games that defy the grim reports that have overshadowed preparations. Kelly Olynyk Jersey . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. Tim Hardaway Jersey . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Midway through the second quarter Sunday, down 7-0 following two straight penalties by his talk-of-the-NFL offensive line, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott faced a first-and-30 at his own 28 and thought he was in pretty good shape.It might actually be easier at that point, the unflappable rookie said a couple hours later. You know, your mentality is just to get a little bit at a time, check it down and let your guys do what they do. When you can just focus on the next play, the next throw, trust the guys around you to make the blocks ... thats when it gets fun.A 12-yard Prescott scramble, a 12-yarder to Dez Bryant on the skinny post, a 41-yard bomb to Brice Butler on the sideline, and the first-and-30 was a memory. The Cowboys first touchdown of the game was moments away. Their ninth straight win was in motion. No ones having more fun right now than Prescott & Co.The game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and their top-ranked defense was a potential pothole on the Cowboys improbable road to the postseason. Baltimore had a plan for the Cowboys dazzling rookies. They were going to plug up the middle with Brandon Williams and the big guys on their defensive line, cutting things off for Ezekiel Elliott. They were going to blitz off the edges and rattle Prescott. The Cowboys knew it was coming, and they knew it was going to be rough.I wouldnt say we were specifically looking forward to it, Elliott said.Whats amazing about Sunday, as the latest chapter in a season not even the most starry-eyed Cowboys fan saw coming, is that Baltimore did what it set out to do. It?limited Elliott to 26 yards on six carries in the first half. It rattled Prescott, who was admittedly off with several throws early in the game. The Ravens wanted to be tough and physical and mean with the Cowboys, and they did just that. They had the Cowboys kryptonite, and they were using it effectively.The Cowboys beat them anyway.I knew we were going to wear them down because we have a physical team too, and we believe in our physicality, Prescott said. Theyre physical. I give them credit for that. They came out and shut our run game down early on. But we believe in our physicality.The Cowboys self-belief is something to behold. They didnt care that the Ravens were smothering them early. They didnt care that Elliott couldnt get it going. They absolutely knew they were going to dominate the second half, and dominate it they did, possessing the ball for a ludicrous 20:09 of 30 second-half minutes and choking off any hope the Ravens had of ending the leagues longest win streak.Baltimore is the kind of team that should give the Cowboys trouble. The Cowboys took their best shot and shrugged it off.They definitely didnt become unstoppable, Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley said. We played top--down defense in the passing game.dddddddddddd And they do checkdowns, like 10 yards per pop. Its kind of hard. You dont want to give up the big play, and they check it down.Relentlessly. Over and over again. As if they dont care what kind of kryptonite you brought.The most incredible thing about what Dallas is doing is that its leaning so hard on the rookies. Defenses are supposed to be able to rattle rookies and get them off their game. But Elliott and Prescott dont rattle. They believe.I never get antsy, said Elliott, who rushed 25 times for 97 yards and was held under 4.0 yards per carry for the first time since his Week 1 NFL debut. Because I know were going to get into the fourth quarter and run the ball, no matter what. They were keying on the run early on, and you saw we were struggling a little bit, but its a four-quarter game.Perspective from rookies. Confidence from rookies. Total faith from rookies -- in their linemen, their coaches and the entire group around them. Thats the way you win when you build around rookies. You convince them theyre in control. You make it clear to the rookie quarterback that its his team, even now that Tony Romo is in uniform on the sideline for the first time all season. You get the rookies to buy into the idea that sticking to the plan will work, no matter how it feels throughout the first quarter and deep into the second. Then you pile up wins as proof, and theres basically no stopping you.Logic says someone will beat these Cowboys again. The Dallas defense doesnt scare anyone, which is why keeping it off the field for two-thirds of the second half is such a brilliant plan. The offense doesnt generate a lot of big plays (perhaps simply because it doesnt need to). Rookies always get tired as the season goes along, and there are six games left in this Cowboys season, the first of which is four days away. Logic says theres a hiccup looming somewhere.But logic said the Cowboys would have a hard time with the Ravens on Sunday. And they kind of did. And they won?kind of?easily anyway.The Ravens wanted to beat this team, giddy owner Jerry Jones said. We hadnt beaten them since theyve been the Ravens. It was all there for them to come here and set us back. That makes it all the more impressive to get the win. Thats a top NFL franchise that we beat today. Im impressed.Watching the Cowboys every week, its hard to not be. Since the Giants won by a point in Week 1, no team has shown that the Cowboys can be beaten. Baltimore had a plan and executed it and lost anyway.If theres any kryptonite out there for these Cowboys, its going to have to be different stuff than what the Ravens brought Sunday. That didnt work.
