The game surpassed the epic 2016 matchup between Pittsburgh and Syracuse that ended with a score of 76-61. The only game that had more total points than the Week 10 matchup is the 2018 LSU-TAMU game that went to 7 OTs.
That 2018 match ended with the Aggies winning 74-72. The game was a deciding factor in the NCAA changing the OT rules to avoid a game like that taking place again. Now after the 2nd OT, teams compete in a 2-point shootout.
