AP-TX--Texas A&M-Big Finish,0157<
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) _ After all Texas A&M has been
through in the last month, the Aggies are still tied for first
place in the Big 12 South with four games left.
And what a four-game stretch.
Every opponent is ranked in the top 20 this week, starting with
Saturday's home game against Number 12 Kansas (7-0, 3-0 Big 12).
A&M (6-2, 3-1) visits Number four Oklahoma and Number 13
Missouri -- before its traditional finale against Texas, ranked
17th this week.
The Aggies were bombarded with questions for weeks about coach
Dennis Franchione's future after he was caught giving out inside
information in a secretive for-pay newsletter to boosters.
That scandal hit between humiliating nationally televised losses
at Miami and Texas Tech.
A&M running back Jorvorskie Lane says this four-game stretch is
a grind -- but they're just going to have to fight through it.
