LED BY MUCH-MALIGNED QB KELLEN MOND, AGGIES SURPRISE GATORS

 

BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION (AP) — Isaiah Spiller rushed for 174 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 21 Texas A&M beat fourth-ranked Florida 41-38 on Seth Small’s 26-yard field goal as time expired Saturday.

QB Kellen Mond silenced his critics by coming up huge in upset win

Big win for Jimbo Fisher in building the Aggies program

RB Isaiah Spiller ran past, through and over Florida's defense

Spiller helped get the Aggies get into position for Small’s decisive kick, giving Jimbo Fisher his first win over a top-five team since taking over as Texas A&M coach.

QB Kellen Mond, who has been criticized all during his career in College Station that he isnt a great QB, can’t win the big games or he disappears when the Aggies needs him the most, showed he is great when needed. He passed for 338 yards and three touchdowns to help the Aggies (2-1, 2-1 SEC) down the previously undefeated Gators (2-1, 2-1)

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask had 312 yards passing and four TDs, but the Gators were done in by the late mistake and another poor performance by their defense.

Caleb Chapman finished with nine receptions for 151 yards and two touchdowns as the Aggies bounced back from last week’s lopsided loss to No. 2 Alabama.

Team Notes

  • The victory over No. 4 Florida is A&M’s first win over a top-five team since defeating No. 3 Auburn on the road, 41-38, in 2014 and the first top-five win at Kyle Field since knocking off No. 1 Oklahoma, 30-26, in 2002.
  • Sophomore RB Isaiah Spiller’s 174 yards on the ground and sophomore WR Caleb Chapman’s 151 receiving yards in the game marked the first time in program history A&M has had a 150-yard receiver and 150-yard rusher in the same game.
  • This was also the first time the Aggies have had a 100-yard receiver and 100-yard rusher in the same game since Jhamon Ausbon (109 receiving yards) and Isaiah Spiller (116 rushing yards) each passed the century mark against Lamar in 2019.
  • The Aggies tallied 543 yards of total offense against the Gators, the most in regulation in a SEC game since putting up 559 against Tennessee in 2016.
  • This was the first time since Oct. 4, 2014 that the Aggies saw four players finish with over 50 receiving yards in an SEC game – C. Chapman (151), A. Smith (53), J. Wydermyer (53), C. Lane (52).
  • Spiller’s 174 rushing yards against No. 4 Florida marked the first time an Aggie has rushed for over 100 yards in a game against a top-10 opponent since Trayveon Williams ran for 198 yards in the win over No. 8 LSU to conclude the 2018 regular season.
  • Today’s captains against Florida were S Keldrick Carper, DL Micheal Clemons and OL Carson Green.
