Texas A&M suffered its latest collapse on Thursday night in a 27-25 loss to Texas to finish the regular season 6-6 after being ranked in the preseason Top 10, but the internet made sure to remind Aggies QB Ryan Tannehill that he still has plenty to be thankful for: His finacee Lauren Ufer.
The camera fell in love with Lauren during the contest against Texas, cutting to her multiple times during the telecast. Afterward, she became a hot topic on Twitter and the websites Outkick the Coverage and Bleacher Report much in the same way Colt McCoy’s wife, Rachel, set the internet on fire while he was in Austin.
Lauren graduated from A&M in the spring and now works as a cardiology assistant at BCS Heart hospital in College Station, with the two set to be wed in January. Oh, and Lauren also happens to be a model. If you’ve become fan, you can follow her on Twitter at @LaurenTannehill.
And while Tannehill’s senior season didn’t go as expected, the quarterback is expected to be a first or second round pick in next spring’s NFL draft.
Not too shabby.
