Few could’ve seen this coming at the beginning of the day. But Texas A&M was unable to stop Mississippi State on the ground.
The Bulldogs racked up 367 rushing yards and pulled off a stunning 35-28 win over No. 4 Texas A&M. Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies were in the initial College Football Playoff rankings, so many reacted to the puzzling loss.

Can't put any of Texas A&M's loss on Kirk, he had an outstanding game https://t.co/eripmWgHM8

Also, forget Texas A&M and Washington. Florida being ranked No. 11 was the biggest travesty in the first College Football Playoff poll

In addition to the playoff conversation, many Texas fans were thrilled with the outcome. The Longhorns held on to beat Texas Tech.
Texas won. A&M lost. Couldn't ask for a better day.

The Aggies will have a chance to get back into the win column next week when they take on Ole Miss. That game will be played in College Station, Tex.
