After the Aggies’ big 41-38 shock win over the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday, Texas A&M fans flooded the field.
The Texas A&M Aggies proved in the first half that they were not going to be pushed around by the Alabama Crimson Tide. Despite a second-half rally by the defending national champions, the Aggies not only tied the game but also went all the way down the field to hit a field goal as time expired to win 41-38.
Texas A&M fans rushed onto Kyle Field to celebrate after the Aggies defeated the nation’s top-ranked team.
Texas A&M pulls off upset of the year over Alabama
The decision of the fans in the stands will cost Texas A&M dearly. Because supporters running onto the field violates the SEC’s “access to competition area policy,” schools have been penalized $250,000. Kentucky was fined by the conference earlier this week after fans celebrated their win over Florida last Saturday.
Without quarterback Zach Calzada’s effort, the Aggies would not have approached upset territory. He appeared to have a leg injury at one point in the fourth quarter when he delivered a game-tying touchdown ball to Ainias Smith. Despite this, he came from the medical tent to assist in setting up Seth Small’s game-winning field goal on the final drive of regulation.
Calzada threw for 285 yards on 21 of 31 passing attempts with three touchdowns and one interception.
Texas A&M has pulled off the season’s biggest upset, and it’s a no-brainer.
It’s safe to assume that Texas A&M will pay the fine with ease.
