Texas Kicks Texas A&M Good Bye 27-25 in Last Meeting (For Now)
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas spoiled Texas A&M’s going away party.
Justin Tucker kicked a 40-yard field goal as time expired to give the Longhorns a 27-25 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday night in the likely end of a more than century-old rivalry.
Texas A&M’s last Big 12 game and the 118th meeting between these bitter rivals before the Aggies depart for the Southeastern Conference next season was a thriller befitting one of college football’s oldest and most storied matchups.
The Aggies were down 24-19 before Ryan Tannehill found Jeff Fuller on a 16-yard touchdown pass with less than 2 minutes left. But the 2-point conversion failed, leaving A&M ahead 25-24.
The Longhorns’ winning drive was helped by a 15-yard personal foul penalty and a 25-yard run by quarterback Case McCoy.
