Texas A&M Named National Team of the Week

Texas A&M

Texas A&M Press Release

DALLAS – Following Texas A&M’s upset of No. 1 Alabama Saturday evening at Kyle Field, the Aggies have been named the Cheez-It Bowl National Team of the Week by the Football Writers Association of America.

Junior quarterback Zach Calzada completed his first 10 passes and led A&M to a tying touchdown and then the game-winning field goal by senior placekicker Seth Small in the fourth quarter. A&M’s signal caller finished 21-for-31 for 285 yards and three touchdowns. A&M’s sophomore running back Devon Achane posted the Aggies’ first kickoff-return touchdown in four seasons while the A&M defense limited the Tide to only 10 points in the first half, its lowest first-half total since being held scoreless by Georgia in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Monday’s honor marked the seventh time that the Maroon & White has garnered the award from the FWAA. Nearly a year ago to the day, the Aggies claimed the Team of the Week designation after A&M toppled No. 4 Florida on a last second field goal by Seth Small last season. Saturday’s victory over Alabama was played in front of a crowd of 106,815, the second-largest crowd in stadium history and its highest since the 2015 redevelopment of Kyle Field.
