The Texas A&M Aggies defeated the #3 Auburn Tigers 41-38 thanks to some timely turnovers and great TD play from Aggies QB Kyle Allen.
The Aggies astounded the Tigers by scoring 14 points in the first two minutes of game time thanks to a 60-yard TD bomb from Kyle Allen to Malcome Kennedy, followed by an Auburn turnover on their first offensive play, which set the Aggies up deep in Auburn territory. Auburn managed to storm back with 14 unanswered points to tie the game, but the Aggies would not allow the comeback as they responded with two more Allen TDs to make the score 28-14. After an Auburn FG to make the score 28-17, the Tigers were in scoring position again and poised for a FG to end the half, but the Aggies blocked it and went all the way back for a TD to give them a 35-17 half-time lead.
Auburn QB Nick Marshall rallied the team in the second half with three TDs to cut the score to 41-38 with only 7:23 left to play. After getting the ball back twice, Auburn fumbled on two consecutive drives and had no timeouts left to stop the Aggies from running out the clock.
With the loss, Auburn falls to 7-2 on the season and is virtually guaranteed to fall out of the College Football playoff poll this week. The loss was also their first home loss under head coach Gus Malzahn.
With the win, the Aggies move into 5th place in the SEC West and have their first win against an SEC opponent since September. QB Kyle Allen also won his first career start against an SEC team.
