Fitzgerald Guides Mississippi State In 35-28 Upset Of No. 4 Texas A&M

Mississippi State stunned No. 4 Texas A&M, 35-28 in a college football game on Saturday to shake up the top four in the rankings.

STARKVILLE, Miss., Sporting Alert – Nick Fitzgerald accounted for four touchdowns and Mississippi State upset No. 4 Texas A&M, 35-28 to shake up the top four rankings in the College Football Playoffs already.

The Aggies (7-2) was selected fourth behind Alabama, Clemson and Michigan in the first release of the CFP rankings this week, which shocked several college football experts.

On Saturday the men from College Station found the Bulldogs to hot to handle and will more than likely drop from the top 10 in the next release.

Fitzgerald threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions while running for another 182 yards and two more scores for Mississippi State, which started the game as 10-point home underdogs and +320 on the money line.

Aeris Williams ran 24 times for 140 yards and a score and Fred Ross took two catches for scores and 98 yards.

Jake Hubenak passed for 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Texas A&M, which also lost starting quarterback Trevor Knight to injury.

Christian Kirk took seven catches for 144 yards and touchdown in the defeat.

The Aggies allowed just 160.5 rushing yards per game against their first four Power 5 conference rivals – UCLA, Auburn, Arkansas and South Carolina – but have allowed an average of 311.3 against their last three, which was well beefed up with a season-high 365 yards allowed at Mississippi State in Saturday’s loss.

Mississippi State, which is coming off a very difficult October schedule that included losses to BYU, Auburn and Kentucky, will now head to Alabama next Saturday confident about their chances of knocking off the nation’s No. 1 team.

Kobe Franz is a huge sports fan, but loves the Oklahoma City Thunder and the rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Franz also enjoys spending time with his family.
