Winning the first game of the season is cause for celebration enough. Knocking off the No. 15 team in the country? Go crazy, Texas A&M.

Texas A&M got great performances in all phases of the game. Freshman wide receiver Christian Kirk brought in six receptions for 106 yards and a touchdown to go along with a 79-yard punt for a touchdown. Defensive end Myles Garrett had eight tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble as the Aggies rolled to a Week 1 victory.

Sumlin approves.
