Texas A&M upsets No. 3 Auburn 41-38

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Freshman Kyle Allen threw four touchdown passes in the first half and Texas A&M recovered two fumbles in the final minutes to cap a 41-38 upset of No. 3 Auburn, likely ending the Tigers' playoff hopes.

The Aggies (7-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference), who came in as 23-point underdogs, pulled off the kind of dramatic finish that had become an Auburn trademark.

The Tigers (7-2, 4-2, No. 3 CFP) twice appeared to be driving toward a go-ahead touchdown before coughing it up on plays that never really got going. First, Julien Obioha won a scramble for the ball after Nick Marshall and Cameron Artis-Payne got tangled up in the backfield.

Then, the Tigers drove inside the Texas A&M 30 for one more shot. Marshall appeared to be still calling the play when center Reese Dismukes snapped it. Alonzo Williams recovered with 54 seconds left.
