Kenny Hill played pretty average the whole game until the team needed that late 4th quarter surge…and Kenny Trill stepped onto the field to tie the game on an EIGHTY SIX yard touchdown pass to Edward Pope just before the two minute warning. In the first play of OT he hit Malcome Kennedy for a TD and wrapped up the game for the Aggies. He ended up going 21/41 for 386 yards and four touchdowns with one interception. The defense wasn’t quite as dominating as we saw against South Carolina but no one really expected it to be going into the season anyway. They allowed 484 yards but held the Hogs scoreless in the 4th quarter and stopped them on all four downs in OT. Heading into Starkville should prove to be a pretty good matchup between ranked SEC teams. If you had told me Arkansas or Mississippi State either one would give A&M a hard time I would have said you’re crazy. But this is SEC football- everything is crazy.

Pretty much to wrap it all up, lots of interceptions from young quarterbacks, lots of good defense and it’s the SEC so it’s always good football. Lots of good matchups going into week 6, it will be interesting to see who stays undefeated and adds another SEC win. The east is all but wide open and anyone can make moves.
