A 28 yard field goal as time expired gave Texas A&M the victory over top-ranked Alabama. The 41-38 loss ended the Crimson Tide's winning streak at 19 games. The Defending national champion Alabama had scored 21 straight points, capped by a TD reception and 2-point conversion grab by Jameson Williams. That put the Tide in a 38-31 lead with five minutes to go. Texas A&M tied it at 38 when Zach Calzada connected for a 25-yard touchdown strike with three minutes left. Calzada was hit as he threw the strike and had to be helped off the field but returned for the next drive after a visit to the medical tent. Calzada returned after the Aggies forced a punt to orchestrate the winning drive.
