It was redemption day in Aggieland as Texas A&M upset No.1 Alabama coming off of a loss to Mississippi State that saw the Aggies fall out of the top 25. Quarterback Zach Calzada was undeniably the star of the show. After a rough start to his season filling in for Haynes King, Calzada had the game of his career leading the Aggies to victory. Texas A&M will return to Kyle Field to face off against South Carolina on Saturday, Oct. 23 with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m.
