Texas A&M Football

The Internet reacts to Texas A&M's record-breaking win over LSU

November 25, 2018

I’m writing this story at 2am and I’m not at all tired. Alright maybe a little, but I must PRESS ON in order to bring y’all the #content you so richly deserve after a game like that.

Let’s take a stroll down Twitter Lane and see how the nation reacted to the highest-scoring college football game in the history of the FBS.

First, it was #OVER.


Dan Wolken deleted the tweet below, but the Internet never forgets, DAN.

If you recall, we’ve seen this before..

It wasn’t just reporters who were rushing to drive the final nail in A&M’s coffin — LSU players themselves gave Coach O a Gatorade bath (or as Lou Holth referred to it … Premature Gatoration).

BUT in a “kind of lucky” turn of events, Kellen Mond’s knee was down and A&M got another shot in regulation. Then they scored. Then we died.

Then Texas A&M and LSU proceeded to play another 18 hours and 27 minutes until one team died and a champion emerged victorious.

Then … uhhhh all hell broke loose?

Apparently everyone is fine and the incident is being looked into so LET’S MOVE ON.

Post-game reaction came pouring in and Whataburger started us off right by advertising breakfast tacos while also correctly referring to A&M as the “Texas Aggies.”

This tweet did NOT sit well with a Louisiana elementary principal.


Speaking of things not sitting well, the officiating — while favoring LSU early on — took a decided turn in A&M’s favor at the end of regulation and in overtime. And some media members were NOT PLEASED.


Other non-media people Longhorns were taking notice as well. Some were screaming.

Some were making (very) bad jokes.

And some were just complaining.

Oh I’m sorry that’s a media member. I think. 

Of course, LSU fans were beside themselves. If you’re prone to enjoy basking in Tiger tears, feel free to scroll through the replies to this tweet:

Enough about officiating. We’ll just leave this here and move along quietly.


And now is the portion of our story where we check in with former players!


Poor Christian Kirk was stuck in a west coast hotel room that somehow didn’t have the SEC Network.




As you can imagine after a game like this, the #STATNERDS were out in full force.


And my personal favorite


After there were no more numbers to run, it was time to just start trolling the haters, beginning with the official account.


And then there’s the matter of exorcising some demons, including the dreaded Kirk Herbstreit Kiss of Death™


That about sums it up, Ags. Feel free to add anything I missed below.

Wherever you were — even if you left early — you won’t ever forget this game.
