It may be a tough pill for dedicated Aggie fans to swallow, but fair is fair and on Wednesday Lucinda Maller predicted that the Alabama Crimson Tide would roll over the Texas A&M Aggies 35
to 28. Coming closest first without going over, she delivered the final blow to us which forced our Chief Dealer to pronounce Maller the winner of the Texas Poker Store “Predict the Score” contest, which means we’ll be shipping out the 300 Chip Big Slick Texas Hold’em 11.5 g Set to her. Congratulations, Lucinda.
It was a tough battle for the Aggies. Kyle Allen was certainly out of sync with his receivers Saturday as he threw a total of three passes that were intercepted and returned for touchdowns. Two of them were picked off by Minkah Fitzpatrick, making him the first player in Alabama history to return two interceptions for touchdowns in a game. Allen threw the first interception on the Aggies’ second drive and Fitzpatrick returned that one for 33 yards. Allen threw his second interception on a high pass that was picked off by Eddie Jackson and returned for 93 yards and, to add insult to injury, he was picked off a third time by Fitzpatrick for a return of 55 yards. And it wasn’t only Allen who was not on point; Kyler Murray was intercepted on the last play of the third quarter which resulted in a field goal.
As coach Sumlin said in his post-game presser, you can’t give a great team like Alabama those kinds of freebies and expect to win. Hopefully for Aggie fans, the team figures out how to fix their normally explosive offense before next week’s game against Ole Miss.
Have fun with your Big Slick Texas Holdem Poker Chips Lucinda.
