Appalachian State stuns No. 6 Texas A&M with dominant defensive effort
Appalachian State is at it again, slaying another college football giant with a huge early-season upset.
Though the stakes are certainly different than when the Mountaineers took down Michigan in the Big House, App. State was still a massive underdog heading to face Texas A&M in Week 2. That didn’t slow them down as the Mountaineers dialed up a huge defensive effort against the No. 6 Aggies.
Texas A&M did have a shot to tie the game with less than 4 minutes to go on a field goal. However, that kick was disastrous with the Aggies missing and turning the ball over with a 17-14 margin.

Appalachian State held Texas A&M to less than 200 yards of offense in the game, including 9 first downs for the Aggies. The Mountaineers also dominated time of possession with the Aggies holding the ball for less than 20 minutes of game time.

At this point, it’s fair to wonder if any team in the nation is as consistently overrated as the Aggies. Texas A&M entered the season as a top-10 team, but that is hard to understand at this point.
