Tennessee's Jalen Hurd won't play at Texas A&M with unspecified injury

09 October, 2016, 05:12 | Author: Lula Armstrong

The game-tying score came on Dobbs' 18-yard touchdown pass to Alvin Kamara with under a minute remaining in regulation. A win there still is likely to keep them in the College Football Playoff conversation, assuming the Florida-LSU situation gets worked out before the SEC championship game. They needed a seventh to finally put the undead Vols away.

Tennessee will reportedly be without running back Jalen Hurd this weekend against the Aggies. The announced attendance of 106,248 was Kyle Field's second-largest crowd.

For now, Kevin Sumlin and the No. 8 Aggies can quit answering the question "Why is this 5-0 Texas A&M team different?" because they're now 6-0 for the first time since 1994 after beating No. 9 Tennessee 45-38 in two overtimes after a game-clinching interception by safety Armani Watts. They made far too many mistakes.

Texas A&M and Tennessee each connected on field goals in the first overtime to force another frame.


The Aggies will travel to Alabama, Oct. 22, for a game that could decide the SEC West. They've been exceptionally hard to kill, but when A&M stretched a 21-7 halftime lead to 28-7 just past the start of the third quarter, this one looked like a breeze.

Tennessee's first drive ends with a punt of 34 yards. The Aggies forced a second overtime, though, when LaCamera knocked his 35-yard redemption try straight down the pipe, and pushed ahead after Knight (239 passing yards, 110 rushing, five total touchdowns) found Christian Kirk for a 24-yard completion and then beat Tennessee to the pylon for a touchdown.

Williams rushed for 210 yards. If Williams had held onto the ball, A&M would've led by two touchdowns. He had a critical blunder, fumbling the ball into the end zone at the end of a 71-yard run with two minutes to play. It took the Volunteers six plays to complete the 80-yard scoring drive to tie the game. Volunteers' quarterback Joshua Dobbs finished with 398 yards passing and 57 yards rushing. And he caught eight passes for 161 with a touchdown.
