Also, tamu is the only school in the history of organized football known to have ever given up a 1 point safety. Seriously, have you ever heard of a 1 point safety? Well. Texas A&M found a way to give one up.
We're actually not the only one, but it is extremely rare.
(as of August 2006)
Known one-point safeties:
1. Westminster vs. West Liberty State (NAIA Division II), September 7, 1996.
Westminster holder Kevin Freeman fumbled the snap. Abandoning the kick, he rolled to his right, but threw an interception, which Liberty caught on the 1-yard line. The interceptor was immediately tackled, causing a fumble that Liberty recovered in its own end zone.
2. Moorpark College vs. Bakersfield (Junior College), September 21, 1996.
Moorpark kicker Tim Wolleck's extra point was blocked and recovered by a Bakerfield defender at the 3. The defender retreated into his own end zone, and was tackled there.
3. Texas vs. Texas A&M, November 26, 2004.
Texas had just scored a touchdown off a blocked punt to cut Texas A&M's lead to 13-12 in the 3rd quarter. The snap on the extra point was low and was bobbled by backup holder Matt Nordgren, causing Dusty Mangum's kick to be blocked. A Texas A&M player picked the ball up but was immediately tackled and fumbled the ball into the end zone, where it was recovered by another Texas A&M player.
In comparing lifetime wins and losses, Texas A&M has more lifetime losses and fewer lifetime wins than does Louisiana Tech. Louisiana Tech has a higher lifetime winning percentage than does Texas A&M. Louisiana Tech has won more conference championships than Texas A&M. Louisiana Tech has won 3 national championships. Texas A&M has won only 1.

Has any livestock arrived for the state fair yet and if so are we doing anything to keep them safe? Especially the sheep and goats.
TAMU has 120 more lifetime wins.
Tech lifetime winning percentage: 54.8%
TAMU lifetime winning percentage: 57.8%
Tech and TAMU both have 2 NC's. Tech's are definitely more recent.
