COLLEGE STATION, Texas — After Texas A&M's 45-38 double-overtime win over Tennessee in yet another SEC showdown for the ages, nobody at Kyle Field wanted to leave.

They stayed, they cheered, and they celebrated. Volunteers fans stood stunned in the corner of the end zone.

After all, this wasn't a game the Vols were used to losing; they had won so many heart-stoppers in a 5-0 start that saw them surge to No. 9 in the nation.

On Saturday, they stormed back all the way from down 28-7 in the second half to tie the game at 35-all and send it into overtime, thanks to so many clutch plays.

But in the end, an A&M team that started fast and sputtered down the stretch made the two biggest plays to win.

A Trevor Knight-to-Christian Kirk 24-yard pass set up a go-ahead touchdown in the second overtime, and on the Vols' first play on their turn, Aggies defensive back Armani Watts intercepted a Joshua Dobbs pass to preserve the win. It was a school-record seventh turnover for the Vols.

It was a game that had everything you could ever want, and it will be an instant classic.
