Before the season

2012 Recruits

Blue-White Spring Game presented by Orbit Irrigation Products

The Spring Game took place on April 28, 2012 featuring the squad divided into a blue team and a white team. It quickly became obvious that offense would rule the day. Despite injuries to running back Kerwynn Williams and receiver Matt Austin, the Aggies offense compiled 330 yards passing offense and 482 yards total offense over 75-plays. The Blue team would sneak away with a 58-57 win. However, the QB battle didn't become any clearer. Both Chuckie Keeton and Adam Kennedy would have outstanding days in the new Aggies spread offense. Keeton went 16-of-25 for 187 yards and two touchdowns. Kennedy responded by going 16-for-22 for 143 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception.[2]
