“It’s a good win,” Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher said. “It’s a big win … but they’re all big wins.”

Both teams are 2-1 overall. In addition, each are 2-1 on the Southeastern Conference.

“We’re playing 10 SEC games in a row,” Florida head coach Dan Mullen said. “We have to get over this one quick. It’s more like an NFL schedule.”

According to Winsipedia.com, this was the fifth meeting all-time between the two teams. Texas A&M now has a 3-2 lead in the all-time series.

The Aggies have won two straight games in the seres, as they also won the October 14, 2017, meeting with a 19-17 win in Gainesville, Florida. The Gators last won in the series on Sept. 8, 2012 in a 20-17 win in College Station, Texas.

After Kellen Mond hit Caleb Chapman to tie the game, the Gators then fumbled the ball on the next possession. Florida running back Malik Davis fumbled the ball at the Gators 48-yard line.

The Aggies then marched down the field. Seth Small then made a 26-yard game-winning field goal.

“I think this is a real big confidence-booster,” Isaiah Spiller said. “I feel like we really gained our identity.”
