Game 7: Colorado

This game turned out to be far more interesting than I had originally thought.

Texas A&M beat a scrappy Colorado squad on Saturday but needed overtime to pull it off, winning 29-26. After suffering through a poor first half, A&M QB Reggie McNeal finished with an impressive 382 yards of total offense (243 passing, a career-high 139 rushing).

For the seventh game this season—that is, all of them to date—McNeal did not throw an interception. And for the sixth game this season, the Aggies as a team did not turn the ball over. The Aggies forced two turnovers by the Buffaloes, including a game-ending fumble in overtime. (Note to CU fans: Stop your whining. Replays and photos show conclusively that Purify fumbled the ball before going down. End of story.)

A&M is now 6-1 on the season (4-0 in Big XII play) and is now bowl eligible. Next game: Saturday, October 30th at Baylor. Next real game: Saturday, November 6th vs Oklahoma for the Big XII South lead.
