1910

A&M had to overcome the loss of Louis Hamilton in coach Charley Moran's second season. The team featured running backs Tyree Bell, Wyatte Beasley, A.R. Bateman and George Barnes and got out to a 4-0 start, holding their opponents to a combined five points. In a 34-0 win over Kentucky, James Flinchem scored on a 70-yard touchdown run and C.E. Ward caught a touchdown pass. Against Arkansas, the Aggie offense stalled and the Hogs got a late touchdown in a 5-0 victory — touchdowns were worth five points — in Fayetteville. A&M defeated TCU 35-0 the next week and prepared for the annual clash with Texas. Prior to the game, Moran guaranteed victory, saying, "Of course we're going to win." Leading 9-8 going into the fourth quarter, A&M turned to Beasley. He accounted for half the team's yards on the decisive drive that ended in a touchdown run, giving A&M a 14-8 win. The Aggies closed out the season with shutout victories over Southwestern — in which R.A. Kern caught the game-winning touchdown — and Tulane. A&M finished 8-1, outscoring opponents 203-24.
