Texas A&M had a big win against Arkansas on Saturday in Arlington, TX. The Aggies upended the Razorbacks 35-28 in overtime, and with the win, Kevin Sumlin's squad improved to 5-0 on the season and 2-0 in the SEC.
Unfortunately, it wasn't all good against the Razorbacks. Texas A&M needed 14 fourth quarter points to force overtime, and Arkansas gained 484 yards of total offense against the Aggies' defense, including 285 rushing yards. In fact, to ESPN analyst Danny Kanell, the team was so unconvincing that he's "bailing" on TAMU due to its performance.

It's probably too early in the season to bail on any team with legitimate national title aspirations, especially one as talented as Texas A&M, but it's fair to be skeptical of TAMU after it struggled against a talented but unranked Arkansas squad.
Fortunately for the Aggies, they have a huge road game against No. 12 Mississippi State on Saturday, so the team has a chance to silence its detractors with a win.
