Week 5 (3-0): At Oklahoma State

Texas A&M falls to Oklahoma State 36-33

Here is where the timeline begins to change. In 2012, the Aggies played Ole Miss in Oxford. In our new 2012 however, Texas A&M plays Oklahoma State. The year before, 2011, the game was in College Station, so our new destination is Stillwater.

In ten games simulated, the Aggies won only two. But, in those two victories, they won by 10 and 52. Sometimes, college football goes off the rails, and the website knows this. The Ags suffer their first loss in Stillwater against an Oklahoma State group that would finish 8-5 in 2012. Ouch.

In the game I highlighted, Texas A&M won 55-45. Johnny was 27-40 with 380 yards and six touchdowns. He added 73 yards on the ground. Mike Evans had seven catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.

With numbers like that, how did Texas A&M lose? Oklahoma State fans may be chuckling and remembering running back Joseph Randle. In this simulated game (and other ones that I noted), he TORCHED the Aggies. He ran for 200 yards on 21 carries, averaging 9.5 yards per carry. That’s a pretty good way to lose any game.
