COLLEGE STATION The top ranked Crimson Tide are just the sixth number one team to make the trip to Kyle Field, and the first since 2002, when A&M took down Oklahoma.
The other four 'number ones' all beat the Aggies: OU in 2002, and Texas in 1977, 1969, and 1963.
No number one's in this week's Old Army Rewind, but we do look back at three solid Aggie wins.
Ten years ago, the Aggies took a trip to Virginia Tech, battling both the Hokies and the ind and rain of Hurricane Isabel.
The Aggies stayed close to 8th ranked Virginia Tech throughout. This two-yard Courtney Lewis touchdown capped a 98-yard-drive and put the Aggies down two at the half. Reggie McNeal's 15-yard touchdown toss to Tim Van Zant early in the fourth made it a 21-19 game, but the Hokies pulled away down the stretch. Bryan Randall ran for an 8-yard score midway through the 4th. Virginia Tech went on to win it 35-19.
Turn back the clock 15 years ago this week and you'll find an Aggie home win over Lousiana Tech.
The Aggies battled rain in this one as well. D'andre Hardeman's 1-yard plunge was the only touchdown of the first half, but he added two more in the second 30 minutes of action; A ten yarder and a nine yarder. Texas A&M took care of La Tech 28-7.
This week, 20 years ago, the 16th ranked Aggies dominated the Missouri Tigers at Kyle Field. Rodney Thomas and Leeland McElroy each rushed for three touchdowns as the Ags led Mizzou 14-0 after one, 38-0 at the half, and 73-0 at the final gun. A&M has only equaled that scoring output once since then, putting 73 on baylor in 2003.
30 years ago, in 1983, the Aggies took care of Arkansas State 38-0. Aggie kicker Alan Smith hit six field goals in the game, tying a NCAA record at the time. His last two kicks were good from 59 and 57 yards. Billy Cannon added a 60 yard punt return for a touchdown to help the Ags put the Indians away.
