Calzada finished 21-for-31, with 285 receiving yards, three touchdown passes (and an interception), and was 21-for-31. His game-tying touchdown pass from Ainias to Smith caused Calzada to fall with what appeared to be a leg injury. He was able to shake that off, and led the Aggies down field to make the Small kick.

This upset stunned the college football community.

Texas A&M had control throughout the first half. Calzada had two touchdown passes in the first quarter – one to Smith and the other to Jalen Wydermyer. Isaiah Spiller ran for a touchdown of 15 yards. To start the second half, Aggies led 24-10.

Alabama is not a possibility.

NO. 3 IOWA BEATS No. 3 IOWA BEATS NO.

Alabama blocked a kickoff and recovered the ball at the goal line in an effort to change the tide. Devon Achane of the Aggies returned a kick that was 96 yards and scored a touchdown. Texas A&M was hanging tough.

With 5 minutes left in the game, the Crimson Tide scored 21 consecutive points to take a lead of 38-31. Calzada, who wasn’t even the starting quarterback to start the season, led a 6-play, 65-yard drive to tie the game. Calzada then led a 54-yard, 8-play drive to score the game-winning field goal for Small.

It’s the first time Nick Saban has ever lost to a former assistant coach – this one coming to Jimbo Fisher. It’s Alabama’s first loss since Nov. 30, 2019, when they lost by three to Auburn.

Bryce Young was a great player trying to bring the team back into the game. His final stats included 369 yards passing and three touchdown passes, along with an interception.
