The Texas A&M run out of the tunnel and onto Kyle Field for their match-up against No. 1 Alabama on October 7.

No. 1 Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) visited College Station on Saturday night to battle Texas A&M (4-2, 2-1 SEC) on Kyle Field. After being down 24-3 in the third quarter, the Aggies were able to make things interesting in the fourth quarter. After a safety resulted from a blocked punt by junior linebacker Cullen Gillaspia, and a late touchdown run by freshman quarterback Kellen Mond, the Aggies found themselves down 27-19 with 17 seconds left. After a failed onside kick attempt by sophomore kicker Braden Mann, Alabama was able to seal their win. Final score, 27-19.
