Social media reacts to Texas A&M’s 52-10 blowout win over New Mexico

Throw your memories of the dreadful 2022 season in the trash because Texas A&M began their 2023 rebound campaign emphatically. The Maroon and White throttled New Mexico to the tune of 52-10, in what was one of the program’s better season openers in recent memory.

Four quarters of regular season football is a small sample size, of course, but there was no shortage of promising takeaways to build on for the remainder of the season.

After being crowned as the starter earlier in the week, quarterback Conner Weigman had a field day in carving up the Lobos’ defense. The sophomore went 18/23 for 236 yards and five touchdowns en route to becoming the first player in Aggie history to throw five touchdown passes in a season opener. As icing on the cake, he finished with the highest total QBR in the country through Week 1.

The Aggies’ lethal receiving corps was on full display, and that was with the likes of Ainias Smith and Moose Muhammad III finishing with “quiet nights,” by their standards. Evan Stewart led Texas A&M in receiving with eight receptions for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Noah Thomas kicked off his breakout campaign with six receptions for 74 yards and three touchdowns.

The competition will only get tougher down the road, but it was the type of strong start to the season that the Aggies needed. Here’s how social media reacted to Texas A&M’s 52-10 Week 1 win over New Mexico.

The best wide receiver in the SEC

Conner Weig-HIM

Josh DeBerry's immediate impact is going to pay dividends

SEC Mike can see the vision, just like all of us

We've all demolished the memories of that 2022 season

Buckle up, Noah Thomas breakout season incoming...

And we still haven't seen the full breadth of this Aggies offense

A national championship AND a Heisman trophy winner in the same season?!

Where are all the Jimbo Fisher and Bobby Petrino cynics now?!

Is that good? Seems pretty good...

Narrator: "They were wrong."

And to think this team will only get better from here and out

They are all HIM!

You absolutely love to see it

We need "feed the studs" printed on a t-shirt ASAP
