It Was Almost Upset Weekend

It's no secret that Parker and I absolutely love Aggie football. Turn on any college football game for that matter, and we will watch. Saturday was a weird day for college football. By Saturday evening, people were calling it "upset weekend". Penn State upset Michigan in overtime, Missouri upset Georgia, marking the first time Missouri has beaten a top 10 team on the road in 32 years, and UT upset OU. None of these games were even supposed to be close! The Aggies were set to play Ole Miss at 7:30 Saturday night, and it was supposed to be a fairly easy win....supposed to be.

We had our first football party of the season and invited a few fellow Aggies over to watch the game, let the pups play, and eat copious amounts of food. Here are a few pictures from the game that almost gave us all a heart attack.


Thanks for the pretty smile, Parker

 


The game was close all evening, and finally in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, it was a tied game. I think Aggies across America were freaking out, because at 38-38 with just seconds to go and the ball in our possession, it was either win with a field goal or go into overtime. We all literally held our breath as our new kicker lined up for the field goal. He made it though! Texas A&M won 41-38, and we were so relieved! The Aggies seriously gave me a cardio work-out Saturday night, but at least they pulled it off.

We are so glad it wasn't upset weekend across the board, but it seemed like there were definitely more upsets than normal on Saturday. Texas A&M takes on Auburn next week (who beat Ole Miss two weeks ago), so let's get it together please Aggies.

Did anyone else spend their Saturday almost exclusively watching football and eating goodies? No shame, no regrets :)

We did! We spent our day watching Utah vs. Stanford. Utah is both Ryan and my alma mater, and we definitely expected them to lose, but they won! It was madness - we were SO excited!

Congrats on your Aggie win! :)

It was upset weekend for Murray State as well! We were predicted to win the football game against Southeast Missouri State, but we LOST. SEMO hasn't beaten MSU in YEARS!!!

I had no clue what an upset was until I read your post. I'm glad I learned something new today and I'm glad it didn't happen to the Aggies! I hope they do well next weekend and crush Auburn!

I can't tell you how thankful I was that the Vols were on a bye week last week so I didn't have to experience my usual weekend heartbreak. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty tickled about the GA loss! Glad the Aggies pulled out the W for you! :)
