The Aggies were down 20-17 going into the fourth quarter against the Tar Heels. However, Texas A&M came alive in the last quarter to take the game away from North Carolina, as they scored a total of 24 points while holding their opponents to seven to win the contest. Devon Achane's insane run could not have come at a better time, as the teams were tied 27-27, with his six giving them the lead and ultimately the confidence to close the game out.
Texas quarterback Kellen Mond did not throw any touchdowns, but he led the offense up the field with his 16 completions, 232 throwing yards, and one rushing touchdown. The Aggies' rushing game was nearly unstoppable, as running backs Achane and Isaiah Spiller both ran for two touchdowns.
Tar Heels quarterback Sam Howell threw for a competitive three touchdowns along with 234 yards, but hecould not get the W for his squad.
Despite missing on the College Football Playoffs, the Aggies' Orange Bowl win is the third year in a row that the team has won in a Bowl game. They won emphatically against NC State in the 2018 Gator Bowl and took home the Texas Bowl when they beat Oklahoma State 24-21 last year, according to CBS Sports.
