7. 2014 Baseball: Tyler Stubblefield Complete Game – A&M 3, No. 19 Texas 2
Games on the gridiron may have been lacking in the last five years, but games on the diamond certainly have not. Texas A&M and Texas have played five times since 2012, including once in the postseason. The Aggies are 2-3 against the Horns in that time.
The 2014 NCAA Showdown was the first time the teams had met since Texas A&M moved to the SEC, and the series was a good one even though the bad guys would take it 2-1 to advance to the Super Regionals. Texas A&M’s one win was one for the record books, however.
Freshman Tyler Stubblefield pitched for the Aggies, going all the way to pitch his first career complete game in the 3-2 Aggie victory. Stubblefield allowed just four hits while striking out nine in the game.
The Aggies and the Longhorns were matched up with the George Mason Patriots and the Rice Owls in the Houston Regional that season, with the Longhorns being the 2-seed in the regional and the Aggies being the 3-seed.
After dropping an 8-1 decision to the Horns in the first game of the regional, the Aggies took care of business against the Patriots and the Owls to set up a rematch to decide the Regional Champion. Stubblefield’s complete game forced a deciding game three, which the Longhorns would take 4-1.
