Mississippi St upsets No. 7 Texas A&M 35-28

Nov 07, 2016, 00:46

Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald ran for 182 yards and a pair of touchdowns and added 209 yards and two TDs through the air.

Mississippi State (4-5, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) was coming off an uninspiring 56-41 win over lower-level Samford.

The Aggies (7-2, 4-2 SEC) took the fourth spot in the initial college football playoff rankings earlier this week above undefeated Washington, but couldn't pull themselves out of early first-half deficits. Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald (7) runs past a Texas A&M defender for a 74-yard touchdown run in the first half of a NCAA college football game in Starkville, Miss., Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016. The Aggies were powerless to stop Mississippi State's ground assault.

In the midst of what appeared to be a disastrous season, Mississippi State was able to turn things around and defeat Texas A&M on Saturday, 35-28, in Starkville.

The Aggies would score again, but it would end up being a little too late.

Stacy Coley and David Njoku each caught two touchdown passes and Ahmmon Richards finished with 144 yards receiving for Miami (5-4, 2-3 ACC).

But the difference is this time has a spark that can be ignited at any moment and the game was set alight in the 27th minute. Three is enough, I think. "A lot of the pundits and press will big up that we're conceding too many goals", said Henderson.

But Fitzgerald would respond with 3:08 left in the fourth quarter, carrying tacklers on his way into the end zone to give the Bulldogs a late two-touchdown lead. The Aggies played the second half without Knight, who aggravated his right shoulder injury on at least two occasions during the first half.

Syracuse suffered a shutout defeat for the first time since a 56-0 loss to Georgia Tech on October 19, 2013.

Georgia Southern jumped out to an early lead.

(8) Wisconsin 21, Northwestern 7: Corey Clement ran for 106 yards and a touchdown, Jazz Peavy scored on a 46-yard run and Wisconsin (7-2, 4-2) beat Northwestern (4-5, 3-3 ) in Evanston, Illinois. On the ground, Kendall Bussey rushed for 87 yards in 10 carries while Trayveon Williams had 49 yards and a touchdown in eight carries.

The Aggies have wins over Arkansas and Auburn, which are "good enough" teams but apparently the 19-point road loss to Alabama really put the Aggies over the top.

Wilton Speight finished with a career-high 362 yards after accounting for three touchdowns in the first half, helping MI rout Maryland.

Duke (3-6, 0-5) has lost three straight and is 1-4 since upsetting Notre Dame.

Alex Hornibrook played most of the game and completed 11 of 19 passes for 92 yards, and the Badgers rolled up 333 yards while dominating the and time of possession (40:25-19:35). The Saturday after Thanksgiving might be better than championship weekend this season.

Running back Brandon Holloway and safety Kivon Coman came back after missing three games with ankle injuries and Deion Calhoun returned at right guard after missed two outings with an ankle sprain. The sophomore signal-caller was also responsible for three of the four touchdowns (two passing, one rushing). After a bye week, the Razorbacks' defense rebounded in a big way. He needs 19 yards to supplant school leader Chad Bumphis (2,270 from 2009-12). It prompts would have been an unthinkable question even a month ago: What if Michigan State (2-7) somehow loses to Rutgers next week? This group of linemen who had been beat in almost every game this year made a decision to step up in a big way.

Williams finished the day averaging 5.8 yards per rush and scored one touchdown. But Commodores linebacker Zach Cunningham timed the snap perfectly, leapt over players on both lines of scrimmages and swatted the kick. The Bulldogs ran 10 straight running plays at one point in the drive. He left the game after one series in the fourth quarter. Now Navy has won four of the last 10 meetings.

While handing the Bears (4-5, 2-4 Pac-12) their first home loss of the season, the Huskies (9-0, 6-0) churned out 704 yards of total offense and scored more than 60 points for the second time this season.
