Texas A&M’s Mammoth Alabama Upset Disrupts Frenzied College Football Landscape
Texas A&M’s Mammoth Alabama Upset Disrupts Frenzied College Football Landscape.
Alabama coach Nick Saban was talking about his team’s game versus Texas A&M at College Station, Texas, on his radio programme earlier this week.
“This is a little bit of a trap game for us,” he said, with startling candour.
It was logical.
This had all the makings of a classic “trap game,” in which a surging, highly-ranked team met a depressed, unranked foe.
The No. 1 Crimson Tide, fresh off a rout of Ole Miss in a highly anticipated game last week,
faced a two-loss Aggies squad that had previously fallen at home to Mississippi State.
It was the classic trap game.
And it will always be known as “The Trap Game” throughout Aggieland.
Texas A&M rocked the Top 10 and the whole college football landscape on Saturday,
killing the top-ranked Tide 41–38 in a shocking upset at Kyle Field.
The Aggies (4–2) accomplished it with a backup quarterback as well.
The defence suffocated the Tide in the first half, special teams returned a kickoff for a touchdown,
and kicker Seth Small kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired.
Small’s kick put a stop to a number of streaks.
