Texas A&M has really had a crazy season. Saturday they almost beat Alabama in Alabama, but some weeks back they lost at home to Appalachin State, which has a losing record in the puny Sunbelt Conference.

In other college news: the major undefeated teams in the top ten all stayed unbeaten. ‘Bama was the only one seriously challenged, although Oklahoma State was losing at halftime.

Rutgers watch: They were ahead 13-0 at halftime, but being Rutgers, they lost anyway by failing to score in the second half. They only lost by one point, so even so much as a measly field goal, at any time in the second half, would have won the game for them. But, well, they are Rutgers.
