Eighteen years ago, Texas A&M football ruined the party for Kansas State.
As the Wildcats were a few minutes away from the first BCS Championship game, the Aggies had other ideas.
The 1998 Big 12 Championship game in St. Louis yielded the second huge surprise of the day, as undefeated UCLA already lost to Miami (Fla.) earlier.
And, according to an oral history put together by Jake Trotter of ESPN.com, there were plenty of twists and turns in this one.
- Texas A&M had a little voodoo help to get running back Sirr Parker back for the game.
- The coaching carousel distractions, which featured a lot of big names, and how it impacted the Wildcats.
- The details on how the game shifted momentum in the third quarter, after the Kansas State fans threw chips on to the field.
The teams will meet on Wednesday in the Texas Bowl.
