Aggies lose WR Riley for season By RACHEL COHEN / The Dallas Morning News

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Senior WR L’Tydrick Riley will miss the season after tearing his left ACL Saturday, coach Dennis Franchione said. Riley did not redshirt as a freshman, so he will have another season of eligibility. Riley was A&M’s fourth-leading receiver last year with 20 catches for 285 yards and a touchdown. At 6-2, 238 pounds with excellent hands, Riley was especially effective at converting third downs.

Riley is the second Aggies WR to suffer a season-ending knee injury this month. Redshirt freshman Keith Dickerson tore his ACL Aug. 11. The position, though, is still one of the Aggies’ deepest.
