Posted on

Texas A&M’s stunning 35-28 come from behind OT victory over Arkansas in Arlington Saturday afternoon boosted the Aggies to #4 in the Billingsley report this week. That’s the highest rating achieved by Texas A&M since a #3 ranking on November 14, 1998 after a 17-14 win over then Big 12 foe Missouri. The Aggies were 10-1 that week but fell to #35 arch rival Texas two weeks later in Austin. A&M went on to win the Big 12 Championship game edging undefeated Kansas State 36-33. Texas A&M lost to #8 Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl and finished the 1998 season ranked #9 in the Billingsley Report. Undefeated #13 Mississippi State welcomes Texas A&M to Starkville for a key SEC West game this coming Saturday.
