COLLEGE STATION TX- SEPTEMBER 09 Kellen Mond #11 of the Texas A&M Aggies scrambles out of the pocket to avoid a tackle by Terrell Encalade #87 of the Nicholls State Colonels in the second quarter at Kyle Field

Kellen Mond passed for three touchdowns and ran for one as Texas A&M recovered from a shaky first half to record a 45-21 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday in a nonconference game at College Station, Texas.

Jake Hubenak took over early in the third quarter and finished the game.

The host Aggies (2-1) looked lethargic in the first half, then woke up in the second half and cruised past the Ragin' Cajuns (1-2).

The Democrat visited the Virgin Islands Friday to survey storm damage to better understand how NY can assist in the recovery. NY has already deployed Air National Guard aircraft and personnel to the islands to help with search and rescue.

Hubenak is the second Texas A&M quarterback to go down with an injury, after redshirt freshman Nick Starkel broke his ankle in the season opener vs UCLA.

Texas A&M is been something of a dumpster fire this year. And on a sweltering Saturday afternoon, the Aggies needed to experience a rough first half against ULL before they woke from their slumber.

"I think our team mentally is in a pretty good place based on what's happened to them the last couple of weeks", head coach Kevin Sumlin said at Tuesday's press conference. Hubenak, who was recruited a backup, started the Music City Bowl, one of three starts in his Aggie career.

Last weekend, A&M needed a fourth-quarter surge to put away Nicholls State, the Aggies' lone Football Championship Subdivsion opponent this season. Texas A&M moved ahead four-plus minutes later when Mond threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Camron Buckley to finish off a 10-play, 74-yard drive.

"We're just trying to find the best combination of starting five that will produce the best right now", junior offensive lineman Conner Lanfear said. And true freshman Anthony Hines tallied six tackles, with two of those coming behind the line of scrimmage. Texas A&M survived a scare, winning 24-14.
