Season Recap

Alabama

10/11: Alabama 14, Arkansas 13

Alabama escaped from what would have been a second loss in a row with the win over the Razorbacks, but the Alabama offense struggled once again. The Tide tallied just 227 yards of total offense. Quarterback Blake Sims finished the game with just 161 yards, and wide receiver Amari Cooper only caught two balls for 22 yards. 

10/4: Ole Miss 23, Alabama 17

Alabama's loss to the Rebels was the Crimson Tide's third straight loss to a ranked opponent. A Bo Wallace touchdown pass to Jaylen Walton with 2:54 remaining put Ole Miss ahead, and Blake Sims was intercepted in the opposite end zone to seal the game. T.J. Yeldon finished the game with 123 rushing yards for Alabama, but the team suffered a huge loss in the backfield as Kenyan Drake went down with a severely fractured leg.

9/27: Bye

9/20: Alabama 42, Florida 21

The Crimson Tide, led by Blake Sims and Amari Cooper, exploded for 645 yards of total offense. Sims threw for 445 yards, the second-best total in Alabama history, and had four touchdowns with just one interception. Cooper had 10 catches for 201 yards and three touchdowns. The Tide eclipsed 200 yards rushing in the game.

9/13: Alabama 52, Southern Miss 12

Alabama dominated in time of possession, holding the ball for nearly 35 minutes, and the Crimson Tide amassed 547 yards of total offense on their way to 52 points. Kenyan Drake scored three touchdowns on just nine carries, and Amari Cooper caught eight passes for 135 yards and a touchdown.

9/6: Alabama 41, Florida Atlantic 0

Both Blake Sims and Jake Coker threw for more than 200 yards and the Alabama defense pitched a shutout while allowing just 88 passing yards and 57 rushing yards to FAU. Sims and Coker combined to account for three touchdowns and 430 passing yards. Amari Cooper was the biggest beneficiary, catching 13 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown. 

8/30: Alabama 33, West Virginia 23

In a game that was closer than the final score indicated, Alabama rushed for 288 yards and controlled the ball for nearly 38 minutes. Both T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry eclipsed the 100-yard mark on the ground while combining for three touchdowns, and first-time starting QB Blake Sims threw for 250 yards on 24-of-33 passing. 

Texas A&M

10/11: Ole Miss 35, Texas A&M 20

The Aggies dropped their second game in a row. Quarterback Kenny Hill threw for 401 yards and two touchdowns but also had two interceptions. The ground game for the Aggies was ineffective, as Tre Carson led the way with just 29 yards. Freshman Speedy Noil finished the game with 11 catches for 105 yards. 

10/4: Mississippi State 48, Texas A&M 31

Kenny Hill was picked off three times by a stout Mississippi State defense as the Aggies dropped their first game of the season to the Bulldogs. After taking a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, the Aggies never led again. Dak Prescott and the Mississippi State offense racked up 48 points and 559 yards of total offense.

9/27: Texas A&M 35, Arkansas 28 (OT)

Texas A&M fought back from a 28-14 deficit in the third quarter to beat Arkansas in overtime. Kenny Hill threw for 386 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Wide receiver Edward Pope caught four passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns.

9/20: Texas A&M 58, SMU 6

After topping SMU, the Aggies were off to their first 4-0 start since 2006. Wide receiver Jeremy Tabuyo had touchdown catches of 30 yards and 50 yards. Kenny Hill averaged 12 yards per attempt in throwing for 265 yards and two touchdown passes.

9/13: Texas A&M 38, Rice 10

The Aggies were outgained 481-477 but still earned a convincing victory. Defensive end Myles Garrett had 2.5 sacks, giving him 5.5 for the season, already a school freshman record. Hill became the first player in school history to throw for 1,000 yards in the first three games of a season.

9/6: Texas A&M 73, Lamar 3

Kenny Hill threw for 283 yards and four touchdowns before being pulled due to the lopsidedness of the game.

8/28: Texas A&M 52, South Carolina 28

In his first game as the starting quarterback, Kenny Hill threw for a school-record 511 passing yards. Texas A&M's 680 total yards were the most South Carolina has given up in school history. The Aggies were successful on 12 of 17 third-down conversions.
