In the end, a 28-26 loss to Clemson leaves Texas A&M at 1-1 heading into this week's game against Louisiana Monroe. A failed two-point conversion with under a minute left was the difference, and the ultimate goal of pulling the upset over the second ranked Tigers didn't happen as the Aggies have now lost six in a row to programs ranked inside the top 25.

While there are no moral victories, one mission has been accomplished. There's a new culture in Aggieland. Jimbo Fisher's squad could have laid down and quit on multiple occasions against Clemson, but instead kept fighting.

Quarterback Kellen Mond threw for a career high 430 yards to go with three touchdowns. Not to mention, numerous wide receivers had a coming out party. So in the end, A&M can take a lot of positives from the loss.
