Texas A&M beat North Carolina 41-27 in the Orange Bowl tonight. The Aggies impressively put up 24 points in the fourth quarter. The turning point in the game came when freshman running back Devon Achane, in for Isaiah Spiller who got hurt, scampered for a 76-yard touchdown to give A&M a 34-27 lead. Achane would add another TD in the fourth quarter to ice it.
