1899 LSU game

The team defeated LSU in 1899.

W.A. Murray took over as coach. The season opener was a 40-0 win over Houston High School. (As a new team, A&M didn't have many opponents from which to choose.) Running back Hal Moseley scored twice in the victory. A&M took a tough 10-0 loss to Sewanee. The Aggies bounced back to win three straight over Tulane, LSU and Baylor. The team was shut out again by Texas, 6-0. The game ended in confusion as Murray and Moseley (who was captain) opted to pull the team off the field after being angered by a call. Because of it, Texas refused to play A&M on Thanksgiving Day, according to The Eagle. The Aggies closed out the season by shutting out LSU 52-0, and carrying Murray off the field in triumph. A&M finished the year 4-2.
