1902 Texas game

Texas A&M defeated Texas for the first time in 1902.

Standout backs Earl Schultz, Frank Gray and Gus Street returned as A&M began its first season under J.E. Platt. The Aggies had yet to score a point against Texas. After dominating St. Edwards, A&M took on Baylor. In the fourth quarter, Street scored from 5 yards out to give A&M an 11

-6 victory. George Hope scored two touchdowns in another victory over the Bears. A&M went into the first matchup against the Horns at 3-0-1. They played to a scoreless tie, the first time A&M had escaped defeat against Texas. After a win over Tulane, A&M blew out Trinity, 34-0. Hope scored twice in the win to send the Aggies into the finale against Texas at 6-0-2. And for the first time since football began at A&M in 1894, the Aggies scored and beat Texas, winning the landmark game 11-0 in Austin. The Eagle wrote, "The result wipes out many bitter scores of defeat in the past and raised the A&M boys to the unquestioned championship of the south." A&M finished its first undefeated season at 7-0-2.
