The top 25 games of the 2014 college football season

Texas A&M made the list with its wins over Arkansas (#21) and Auburn (#15).

21. Texas A&M 35, Arkansas 28 OT (Sept. 27)

Arkansas looked poised to capture coach Bret Bielema’s first SEC win when it led Texas A&M 28-14 entering the fourth quarter. But that’s when Aggies quarterback Kenny Hill, then amid the height of Kenny Trill mania, sprung to life. Hill passed for more than 200 yards and the game’s final three touchdowns during the fourth and overtime to help Texas A&M escape in AT&T Stadium. The then-No. 6 Aggies improved to 5-0 for the first time since 2001. -- Zac Ellis

15. Texas A&M 41, Auburn 38 (Nov. 8)

Freshman quarterback Kyle Allen burst out of the gate by throwing four first-half touchdown passes against Auburn to stake Texas A&M to a 35-17 lead. The Tigers climbed back to within 38-31 early in the fourth quarter, but consecutive fumbles on their final two possessions gift-wrapped an Aggies’ upset. Texas A&M squashed Auburn’s playoff hopes while handing the program its first home loss of the coach Gus Malzahn era. -- ZE
