Texas A&M vs. Mississippi State: Ryan Swope emerging as top WR

Ronald Martinez

In his last two games, the Aggies receiver caught a combined 16 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns.

With four concussions in as many years, including one suffered after a shot from Louisiana Tech's Craig Johnson left him watching the remainder of their Oct. 13 game from the sideline, Ryan Swope has still managed to perservere and establish himself as one of the best receivers in Aggies history.

Swope and Jeff Fuller are the only two Texas A&M receivers to have hauled in more than 200 passes and Swope needs just 18 more to surpass Fuller.

In his last two games, despite coming off of the head injury against Louisiana Tech, Swope has had his two best games of the season. After tallying a season-high 10 receptions for 81 yards against the LSU Tigers, he followed the game with a two-touchdown performance against Auburn in which he accumulated 140 yards receiving.

The Aggies have four more games before the end of the regular season at which point they will likely attend a bowl game. However, he'll face one of the nation's top cornerbacks on Saturday when he lines up against Mississippi State's Johnthan Banks.
