Jimbo Fisher finally scored a big win at Texas A&M in his third season as coach of the Non 21 Texas Aggies A&M outlived the No 4 Florida Gators 41-38 on Saturday as Seth Small hit a basket of 26 yards with time expiring to send Kyle Field into a frenzy This marked Fisher’s first victory over one of the five best enemies since being hired by TAMU in 2018, and it brings a measure of redemption following the program’s 52-24 loss to No 2 Alabama questioned the success of Fisher’s tenure last week

The loss is a boost for Florida, who had a chance to win late The Gators took possession at 4.30am left in a tied game and quickly moved the ball to midfield before Malik Davis Gropes DeMarvin Leal of Texas A&M Bumped On From there, the Aggies used their newly found success in the running game to plunge to the shooting range and a monumental victory

The victory is the Aggies’ first over a top-five team at Kyle Field since 2002 and the first since joining the SEC Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond completed 25 of 35 passes for 338 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions as he continued to exhibit a Florida defense that was the SEC’s worst in three games

However, it was Isaiah Spiller who stood out as the difference in the game.The Aggies second-year running back ran 27 times for 174 yards and dominated the second half with a pair of touchdowns as his team recovered from a 28-17 deficit

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask completed 23 of 32 passes for 312 yards and four touchdowns, but the Gators’ passing play cooled in the second half as star tight end Kyle Pitts was limited due to a foot injury

With four starters back on their offensive line and Spiller back for their second season, the Aggies looked like a team capable of leading the game They did it pretty well in a season opener against Vanderbilt, but largely fell flat against Alabama But when the Aggies’ passing game finally ran into a problem early in the third quarter on Saturday, they turned to Spiller. He delivered in a major way

As Texas A&M trailed 28-17 and struggled to stop the Florida offense, the Aggies handed the ball over to Spiller to start a practice midway through the third quarter He had 13, 23, 13 and six yards on four straight games When he finally needed a breather, the Aggies simply handed the ball to Ainias Smith He ticked 9, 5 and 6 yards to carry the Aggies in the red zone Spiller finished the run with a 3-yard run, setting the tone for the rest of the game

Spiller put the Aggies on top 31-28 with 12:35 left to play as he accelerated 19 yards In total, Texas A&M ran 38 times for 205 yards with Spiller dealing much of that damage

Florida’s loss left Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee as the SEC’s only undefeated teams But with the Bulldogs and Volunteers clashing on Saturday, that total will drop to two by the end of the day Not a good sign for the league’s depth But it shouldn’t come as a total shock to see so many teams already healing losses in just week four of the season

The Gators weren’t previously scheduled to play at Texas A&M But when the league moved to a 10-game, conference-only schedule, it added two league games to each team’s schedule.The Gators lost easy wins to Eastern Washington, Southern Alabama, New Mexico State and Florida State from their schedule and added the Aggies and Arkansas instead.

It will be interesting to see if the atmosphere in Texas A&M puts pressure on governors and university officials in other states to relax the attendance restrictions that are in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has lifted restrictions on participation in sporting events in the state, but university officials have not pledged to do the same

The Gators capitalize on turnover with a one-yard swing pass from Trask to Dameon Pierce to reach 38-31 Gators with 6:14 left to go So what are the Aggies going to now? Are they comfortable enough to keep running the ball this late, or do they start trying to aerate it after struggling in the air for much of the second half?

Evan McPherson just drilled a 53-yard basket for Florida with 9:54 left in the game to tie a 31 Big Kick Get the feeling this one might come down to special teams I have to ask if Texas A&M can keep the game on the ground If so, the Aggies could slow the game clock down a bit here on that next trip

Good news for Florida: Kyle Pitts is back here in Q4 There was no explanation for his extended absence, and he’s obviously a vital part of what the Gators are doing Now, up to five catches that day when he caught two here in the fourth quarter after catching three balls in the team’s first practice of the game

There were a total of six possessions in the first half Both teams got the ball three times and both teams scored three times So a bad day if you’re a punter A&M maybe mismanaged a bit his final possession, but the Aggies came away with a basket and they recovered the ball to start the second half The teams are a total of 12 of 13 in third drop The only miss was Florida, and the Gators ended up going fourth and converting
