College Football Week 8

Today the Texas A&M Aggies start a two week road trip that takes them to Stillwater, OK to play Oklahoma State. The game is not televised. I'm not really sure what to expect this week. Two weeks ago we were almost beaten by Kansas while last week we started clicking and upset Missouri. I expect to win this game and it would be nice to again defeat Ok State on their homecoming like we did two years ago. The one thing that I fear is a letdown after a big win last week. I hope the Aggies capitalize on what they have learned over the past two weeks and continue to win conference games building up to the difficult stretch at the end of the season. Gig 'Em and BTHO Oklahoma State!

UPDATE: Ags win!! The game was knotted up all night with the lead changing several times. At the end of regulation, the game was tied at 27 with A&M forcing the overtime with only three seconds remaining. In overtime, the Aggies had the ball first and put up seven points before Oklahoma State took over. Oklahoma State scored a touchdown and appeared to be about to send the game into a second overtime, however their extra point attempt was blocked and the game ended with the Aggies winning by a score of 34-33. Not exactly the win that I had envisioned, but a win none the less. Next week we are on the road again at Baylor and it will not be the easy game either. The last time we played there, we were defeated for the first time in more than twenty years and last year's game at home was no cake walk. Next week is a must win, for both remaining in the conference race as well as for personal pride because honestly, no one likes to lose to Baylor.
