No. 3: The Texas A&M Football team beats No. 13 Kentucky in Jimbo Fisher’s first year
In Jimbo Fisher’s first year, it was unclear what type of coach he would be for the Aggies. He had won a national championship at Florida State, but his tenure came to a slow, painful halt when he couldn’t reach that level of prominence again.
Fisher would have a brutal schedule to begin his career and took two ugly losses against No. 2 Clemson and No. 1 Alabama to begin his tenure with the Aggies. Despite some strong wins, he didn’t have a really good victory to this point in his career.
That would change when the Aggies faced No. 13 Kentucky in Fisher’s sixth game as head coach.
The Aggies came into the game as an underdog. While they had beaten lesser teams, they had also struggled against Clemson and Alabama, the top two teams in the country at the time. They had a lot to prove in this one against the undefeated Wildcats.
And that’s exactly what they would do.
The game was close all the way through. The Aggies and Wildcats would find themselves in overtime, where TAMU would eventually pull out the victory in a lively Kyle Field in College Station. It was the first signature win of the Jimbo Fisher and a sign that this team could compete with anybody.
Kellen Mond had a strong game, but this one would be highlighted by Trayveon Williams once again. The runningback accounted for over 200 yards from scrimmage, scoring the game-winning touchdown in overtime.
