In no way can you say that you saw this coming. Kyle Allen looked absolutely pathetic last week in place of the suspended Kenny “Trill” Hill, and going into the Auburn game we just knew that this was going to be a blowout with Texas A&M reeling.

But Kevin Sumlin worked some more magic. Yes, it took an incredible amount of luck with two botched snaps by Auburn at the beginning of the game, and the Aggies almost blew the game. But Allen’s epic performance against a College Football Playoff contender in an SEC West showdown can’t be ignored.

Allen did his part to remind the rest of the country that Texas A&M is still part of that brutal SEC West despite having a suspect defense. And we are going to give him the respect he is due for that. It can’t be understated how incredible of a win for the Aggies and performance by Allen it was on Saturday against Auburn.

Chalk Allen up to another one of Sumlin’s quarterbacks who have managed to make a name for themselves as a college football superstar.
