Texas A&M's 29-24 victory over the then No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide sent shockwaves through the college football world. It changed the national championship picture and in a lot of ways changed the way people are viewing the Southeastern Conference.
After the win for the Aggies, the same people who were predicting that A&M would get killed in the SEC are now claiming that any spread team could win against the Tide and in the SEC.
This is the same kind of group-think that led to the pundits predicting that A&M would never win in the SEC. Instead of considering the multiple factors involved in a particular game, the mainstream media makes gross generalizations based on said game.
This is a look at why the A&M offense was able to beat the Tide, and what that means for other spread teams across the country.
