Saturday's game was Texas A&M's first trip to Starkville, Miss. The win improves the Aggies' record away from Kyle Field in 2012 to 5-0.

A&M coach Kevin Sumlin's winning streak away from his home field improved to 11 straight -- six at Houston in 2011 and five at A&M in 2012.

Sumlin improved his overall record to 5-3 against Top 25 teams, and the Aggies improved to 2-2 against the top 25.

The win over No. 17 Mississippi State was the Aggies' highest-ranked road win since 2006, when A&M beat No. 11 Texas 12-7 in Austin.

The A&M offense rolled again with 693 total yards on 90 plays. It was the eighth straight game with 400-plus yards, a school record. The previous best was six games.

Senior wide receiver Ryan Swope had his second straight 100-yard receiving game with 121 yards on nine catches. Last week, he had 140 yards and two scores on six catches. In his last three games, Swope has contributed 25 catches for 342 yards and two TDs.

Game captains for the Aggies were senior center Patrick Lewis, senior safety Steven Terrell, senior linebacker Sean Porter, senior wide receiver Ryan Swope and senior 12th Man C.J. Jones.
