Defensive end Tony Jerod-Eddie (broken foot), cornerback Coryell Judie (shoulder) and safety Steven Campbell (foot) all are ailing. Jerod-Eddie broke his foot Nov. 25 in the Aggies’ win over Texas. He had surgery and still is wearing a protective boot. Judie has actually had problems with both shoulders and will have to have surgery after the Cotton Bowl. Campbell still is troubled by a nagging foot sprain.
Coach Mike Sherman said he is optimistic all three will be able to play against LSU on Jan. 7. But the most questionable is Jerod-Eddie, who is tied for the team lead in tackles among defensive linemen (46). Judie, who ranks second among A&M defensive backs in tackles (53), has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns this season.
The Aggie defense has improved a great deal this season under new coordinator Tim DeRuyter, who has been mentioned as a possible head coaching candidate at other schools. The Aggies went from 104th in the nation in scoring defense in 2009 (33.5 ppg) to 21st in 2010 (20.3 ppg). DeRuyter says he has not heard from any other teams about open coaching positions.
With a victory, A&M would have its first 10-win season since 1998. The Aggies haven’t won a bowl game since 2001, losing their past four. This will be Texas A&M’s second game this season at Cowboys Stadium. On Oct. 9 the Aggies faced Arkansas in the Southwest Classic and lost 24-17.
