HOUSTON (AP) - No. 10 Texas A&M's defense knows they need to tighten things up.
While the offense ranks third in the nation in total yards, the defense has struggled and is allowing more yards than all but 10 teams in the nation (489 yards per game).
The unit was back to full strength for the first time this season last week against Alabama after missing players to suspensions in the first two weeks, but it still had problems in a loss to the top-ranked Crimson Tide.
Now the Aggies look for improvement in the unit as they prepare for SMU on Saturday. Coach Kevin Sumlin says the problems his defense has are correctable and he believes the group will find continuity in its second game with all its pieces.
