UPSET: Arkansas Stuns #6 Texas A&M 28-14 In Arlington

On the big stage of AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the Arkansas Razorbacks used their running game to perfection early, before capping off a stunning 28-14 upset of the #6 Texas A&M Aggies in overtime.

Alex Collins, Sam Irwin-Hill, and Jonathan Williams would each scoot into the end zone for Arkansas (4-1) against a Texas A&M (4-1) run defense that looked visibly tired at points during the second half.

It was a matchup made in heaven for the Razorbacks who averaged a Power Five-high 227.8 yards rushing between the tackles coming into the game, per In contrast, the Aggies have allowed more yards on those runs (110.9) than any other SEC team.

Arkansas exploited that all day on Saturday, and was the key to the Razorbacks being in position to off the #6 team in the nation.

Aggies QB Kenny Hill (20-of-40, 361 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT) didn't have enough in the tank on Saturday to fight back much until the fourth quarter, as Texas A&M's offense sputtered in the first 45 minutes with multiple drives ending in punts and missed opportunities.

He would change that in a hurry in the final 15, hitting WR Edward Pope for an electric 81-yard score in the fourth to shave the deficit down to 28-21. After Razorbacks K John Henson missed a 44-yard field goal that would have likely iced the game with just over 2 minutes remaining, Hill would provide a heck of an encore.

With all the hype surrounding his replacement of Johnny Football in College Station, Hill did continued the establishment his own legacy with a clutch 51-yard strike to WR Josh Reynolds that tied the game at 28 with 1:25 left.

The teams would go to overtime from there, and the game would go from tight to classic from there. After what looked to be an uncalled illegal procedure penalty, Hill would hit Malcome Kennedy for a 25-yard TD strike on A&M's first possession to absolutely ignite the Aggies' cheering section.

Down 35-28
