Seth Small made a 28-yard field goal as time expired and Texas A&M stunned top-ranked Alabama 41-38 on Saturday night to end the Crimson Tide’s winning streak at 19 games.
What was supposed to be a joyous moment turned deadly when a verbal argument over the Saturday night game between Alabama and Texas A&M game led to a deadly shooting in Bessemer, Alabama.
Bessemer police were called when two men got into a dispute over the game and who the better team was. The two men were watching the game at another homeowner’s house and were asked to leave.
Once outside, shots were fired and a 27-year-old Kealand Amad Pickens was hit and taken to UAB Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The shooting happened before Texas A&M scored the game-winning field goal to beat the Crimson Tide.
The suspect fled before police arrived.
“It’s another case of resorting to violence to handle differences,” Clemons told AL.com.
The win knocked off No. 1 Alabama, marking the first time a former Nick Saban assistant has ever won against him.
Quarterback Zach Calzada threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns.
