Four touchdowns and 121 yards later, Texas A&M could look directly at Lane and say its thank you's for keeping A&M undefeated. After Fresno State tied the game 22-22 in the fourth quarter, Lane took over. He scored his second touchdown with 1:52 left in regulation and two more in overtime, including the two-point conversion that ended up being the winning margin.
Devin Gregg
The forgotten man Saturday was Gregg who bounced back from a sub-par performance in the season opener to have a fantastic day against Fresno State. Gregg made a circus interception in the first half, forced a fumble and also broke up the fade pass in the back of the end zone on Fresno State's two-point conversion attempt in the third overtime.
Misi Tupe
Tupe was a force in the middle of the field where he made 12 tackles and forced a fumble. The fumble came on a screen play where Tupe read it and raced back to jar loose the ball from behind. The Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year has picked up where he left off last season.
