And once again, all is right with the world.
Final score: Texas A&M – 32, Texas Tech – 25 in OT.
It’s right because Aggie QB Reggie McNeal once again had another stellar day of total offense (309 yards).
It’s right because Aggie RB Courtney Lewis had another 100-yard rushing day (19 carries, 115 yards) and scored the game-winning TD in overtime on a dazzling 25-yard option pitch-and-carry from McNeal.
It’s right because A&M’s much-maligned pass defense held Tech QB Sonny Cumbie under 300 yards passing for the game, the first time Cumbie had failed to reach 300 yards in a game all season.
It’s right because the Aggies once again returned to their stingy ways, committing no turnovers while forcing three (all on interceptions) Tech turnovers.
But mostly it’s right because A&M ended a three-game losing streak to the Zorros, those pinheads desperately in search of someone who’ll truly call them a rival.
A&M is now 7-3 (5-2 in Big XII play). Next game: Friday, November 26th in the annual grudge match at Texas (you know—a real rival).
