STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Mississippi States Nick Fitzgerald was hit a few yards shy of the end zone as one, two and then three Texas A&M defenders tried to pull him to the ground.But the 6-foot-5, 230-pounder kept straining, dragging the Aggies along with him as he finally stumbled forward into the end zone for a crucial touchdown late in the fourth quarter.The sophomore quarterback -- and these Bulldogs -- werent going to be denied in a 35-28 upset win over No. 7 Texas A&M on Saturday.After how hard my team worked for me all day, Fitzgerald said. There was no way I wasnt going to score that for them.Fitzgeralds bruising 4-yard touchdown run was one of the many highlights for Mississippi States running game, which finished with a season-high 365 yards. Fitzgerald ran for 182 yards and two touchdowns while Aeris Williams ran for a career-high 140 yards and a touchdown.It was a stunning win for Mississippi State (4-5, 2/3 Southeastern Conference), which was coming off an uninspiring 56-41 win over lower-level Samford. The Bulldogs had lost their previous three games against FBS competition.It was an equally stunning loss for Texas A&M. The Aggies were ranked No. 4 in the first College Football Playoff rankings released on Tuesday, but will now almost certainly tumble out of contention.We got whipped, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. We couldnt stop the run and we couldnt run it. They dictated play today.The Bulldogs biggest drive was a grinding 14-play, 73-yard push in the fourth quarter that ended with Fitzgeralds aforementioned 4-yard touchdown for a 35-21 lead. Mississippi State ran 10 straight running plays at one point in the drive.The offensive line played fantastic today, Fitzgerald said. I couldnt have asked for anything more from them. Our running backs were running extremely hard, reading the blocks. We knew we could run the ball.Fitzgerald was 18 of 31 passing for 209 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptionss.ddddddddddddTheyre young guys who are starting to get it, Mullen said.Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2) not only lost the game, but possibly its starting quarterback.

He also ran for 54 yards and a touchdown.Mississippi State took a 28-7 lead late in the second quarter after Fitzgeralds 7-yard touchdown pass to Fred Ross, but Texas A&M responded with Christian Kirks 93-yard punt return for a touchdown to pull within 28-14 by halftime.Knights backup, Jake Hubenak, threw a 54-yard touchdown pass to Kirk early in the fourth quarter to pull Texas A&M within 28-21. Hubenak added a 4-yard touchdown pass to Josh Reynolds with 1:33 left, but the Aggies couldnt get enough momentum to overtake Mississippi State.Hubenak completed 11 of 17 passes for 222 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the games final seconds.He really gave us a chance at the end of the game to tie it, Sumlin said. He was a bright spot today, and weve got confidence in Jake going forward.POLL IMPLICATIONSTexas A&M will likely be punished in all three major polls following a loss to one of the SECs worst teams so far this season.THE TAKEAWAYTexas A&M: The Aggies didnt perform well under pressure after being the surprise No. 4 team in the first CFP rankings .Mississippi State: The Bulldogs earn a rejuvenating win against the Aggies after a rough October that included losses to BYU, Auburn and Kentucky.UP NEXTTexas A&M: The Aggies return home and will host Mississippi.Mississippi State: The Bulldogs travel to face Alabama on Saturday.-----More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .
