Kevin Sumlin was not pleased with the officiating several times during the first half of Saturday’s game at Mississippi State. And the Texas A&M coach made sure to voice his displeasure.
During his halftime interview on SEC Network, Sumlin criticized that his team got called for a certain penalty, when he felt the Bulldogs also should have been flagged for a similar offense.
“We get called for a roughing the passer, we get our guy drug down on the other sideline and nothing happens,” Sumlin said on SEC Network.

The Aggies, who were ranked No. 4 in the first College Football Playoff rankings last week, are trailing Mississippi State, 28-14, at halftime.
It was a tough first half all around for Texas A&M, as starting quarterback Trevor Knight exited with a shoulder injury. Sumlin updated his status at halftime:
