COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M had a lot to celebrate on Saturday, yet most of the time it didn’t look that way.

After A&M scored 45 unanswered points to take a 45-35 lead with 6:22 left in the game, the Aggies still faced the daunting challenge of having to mount a final drive to win the game. Fortunately for them, the nation’s top scoring defense kept them in the game. A&M eventually pulled out a 45-45 tie in overtime.

And when those final seconds ticked off the clock and only one player remained on the field, A&M fans celebrated … until the announcer started calling out their opponents’ names.

The second-string offenses.

For the first time since he arrived on campus in 2013, head coach Kevin Sumlin appeared briefly to be enjoying himself as he walked off the field.

“Let’s move forward,” he said with a smile.

It was halftime of the Bulls’ game against Virginia Tech.

The two teams combined for 165 points in regulation and even though the Bulls had just scored in the final minute of regulation for a lead of only a point, the score was still closer than it should have been, given how the first half played out.
