Vols' Danny O'Brien placed on stretcher, carted off field

And even after this loss, they still have plenty to play for this season.

The Aggies improved to 6-0 for the first time in 22 years and 4-0 in the SEC for the first time ever, but not before the Volunteers almost pulled off another miracle.

The Volunteers have won 13 straight games when scoring 30 points and are 18-2 under coach Butch Jones when doing so.

Forced into the feature-back role by Jalen Hurd's injury, Alvin Kamara responded in a big way.

Miami (4-1, 1-1 ACC) scored what looked to be the potential tying touchdown on Brad Kaaya's second scoring pass to wide receiver Stacey Coley after Braxton Berrios' 43-yard punt return set up the Hurricanes at the Seminoles' 16-yard line.

Knight wasn't particularly sharp in accounting for five touchdowns and 349 yards as the Aggies beat Tennessee for the first time in three tries. Even when it wasn't turning the ball over, Tennessee committed costly penalties: 12, for 84. They will certainly jump at least one spot after No. 6 Houston lost to Navy on Saturday. After two timeouts, Daniel LaCamera missed a 38-yard field goal, and the game went to overtime.

Tennessee did march down and tie the game and send it to overtime thanks to some incredible hustle by Foreman.

On Saturday, it looked as if they might somehow find more of the same magic at Kyle Field in an SEC showdown of top-10 teams. Quarterback Trevor Knight scored on a 1-yard touchdown run in the second overtime to give the Aggies the lead.

The Aggies could have put this one away with less than two minutes remaining, but freshman Trayveon Williams had the ball knocked from his hands and out of the back of the end zone just before he crossed the goal line on a 71-yard run.

The Tennessee Volunteers had been toting a horseshoe and all sorts of lucky charms with them over the past few weeks. If the Vols' can steal one against Alabama, their schedule gets much easier.

Streets Blocked After Alfred Olango Shooting Video Released
Multiple killings of black people by armed police have sparked protests in cities across the USA in recent months. Mr Olango, his right hand in his trouser pocket, moved side to side and backed up towards a white pick-up truck.

The Volunteers host Alabama next Saturday.

In the fourth quarter of Tennessee's game against Texas A&M;, defensive lineman Danny O'Brien went down after a helmet-to-helmet tackle. The game raised serious questions about Tennessee's ability in the trenches, questions that it has answered in the games since then. The Vols had 677 yards before a kneeldown at the end of regulation and picked up only 9 on two overtime possessions.

The takeaways helped negate the 684 yards of offense that the Vols rolled up.

216: The absence of Jalen Hurd had nearly no effect on Tennessee's offense.

Oklahoma's Samaje Perine had quite a day, racking up 214 yards and two touchdowns on the ground for the Sooners. Nice effort too by Kamara to get in the end zone. On a third-and-2, Knight popped through a hole on the right side and sprinted 62 yards for a touchdown to give the Aggies a 35-21 lead. Tennessee officials told CBS that he was moving all his extremities, but Jones refused to comment on injuries after the game. That's a 191-point turnaround.

Once again, Tennessee erased a two-touchdown deficit in the second half.

Tennessee would drive 82 yards for a touchdown on the ensuing possession, and suddenly, a victory seemed far less certain.

The defenses starred in the second quarter, as the Vols outgained A&M; 73-52 and neither team managed to score.

It hasn't always been easy, hasn't always been clean and lacks the flare that previous Texas A&M; teams have had.
