Texas A&M's and Kevin Sumlin Searching for Answers Once Again After Loss to Alabama

Texas A&M’s 59-0 loss to Alabama on Saturday was easily the worst of Kevin Sumlin’s three seasons in College Station. The Aggies had little margin for error coming into Tuscaloosa and were simply dominated in every facet of the matchup with the Crimson Tide.

Opportunistic Performance Puts Kansas State in Big 12 Contention

On its face, perhaps Kansas State’s 31-30 win at Oklahoma doesn’t put the Wildcats in anyone’s playoff picks next week.

 

The Wildcats remain a one-loss squad, and its win over the Sooners included a certain amount of good fortune.
