Texas A&M Makes College Football History

Cindy Ciotta, Managing Editor

LSU played Texas A&M on Kyle field on November 25. Going in with LSU No. 7 and Texas A&M No.22, many had expected the LSU win as they held an incredible season thus far. However, at the end of the extremely long game thousands of Texas A&M fans rushed onto the field the 74-72 win against LSU. This was an incredible day for any Aggie as it quite literally made history as the highest scoring game recorded in college football…

The incredible game stretched to last 4 hours and 53 minutes with a grand total of 7 overtimes. This was a great accomplishment for all Aggie fans as it marked the first win in SEC play against LSU.

Things were looking up for LSU towards the end of the second quarter with a lead of 31-24. To many fans surprise, A&M got the ball back at the 22 yard line after LSU went three-and-out, leaving one minute and 23 seconds left on the clock at this point.

Kellen Mond’s interception got overthrown due to his knee and with 30 seconds left many saw an easy LSU win. LSU coach Ed Orgeron even got Gatorade poured on his head as many LSU fans cheered only to find out the game was going into overtime. After closely  watching replays, refs determined it was A&M’s ball and Mond’s interception was deemed an eight yard loss. This was a huge turning point for the game which would go on for seven more overtimes.

In the end of the seventh overtime Texas A&M pulled through with a win from a 17-yard touchdown from Mond to Davis. This game made college football history and certainly marks one of the most tense and interesting games of the year and both teams played hard until the end.
