Local Sports

AUSTIN (KXAN/AP) — The Georgia Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in the country, according to the latest Associated Press top 25 poll. Texas A&M’s upset win over previous-No. 1 Alabama reverberated throughout college football Saturday night.

The Aggies snapped the Crimson Tide’s 19-game winning streak — which was the longest streak at the highest level of college football. Texas A&M kicker Seth Small hit a 28-yard field goal as time expired for the 41-38 win.

Texas A&M returned to the polls Sunday at No. 21, snapping its two-game losing streak with the stunning win over Alabama. The Crimson Tide fell to No. 5 behind No. 2 Iowa, No. 3 Cincinnati and No. 4 Oklahoma.

The Sooners rallied from 21 points down against Texas, completing the largest comeback in the history of the Red River Showdown with a 55-48 win at the Cotton Bowl. Despite the loss, Texas remained in the poll at No. 25.

No. 25 Texas will host No. 12 Oklahoma State Saturday at 11 a.m. at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Cowboys (5-0) had their bye this week.
