Texas A&M Football downed the Razorbacks in yet another thriller. We take a look at the three biggest takeaways from an always-important SEC victory.

What a game. Armani Watts sealed the win with a clutch interception in overtime after Arkansas was driving to tie the game up. Freshman quarterback Kellen Mond was 14-of-27 with two touchdowns and one interception, but was dangerous on the ground. He racked up 109 yards on 10 carries. In addition to those yards, senior running back Keith Ford had 14 carries for 102 yards.

The biggest chunks of yards came on several huge plays. A deep pass to Christian Kirk, and touchdown that wasn’t by Mond, and a few other explosive plays propelled the Aggies to a victory in AT&T stadium.

The defense was also passable, giving up 450 yards but coming up with several key stops. When the chips were down, the young players on the team stepped up and made plays.

Next week, the Aggies host South Carolina, and Kyle Field will be rocking that evening. But, the team and the fans will take at least today to celebrate. Let’s look at three keys to the Aggies big time win over Arkansas
