ESPN Error: Texas A&M, Not UCLA, Was The Favorite In Yesterday’s Game

September 4, 2016

What follows was written by ESPN senior writer Mark Schlabach, concerning which team was the favorite in the CBS telecast of a Texas AM vs UCLA college football game yesterday.

It was Texas A&M, not UCLA, that was a three plus point favorite in the game. The favored Aggies dissipated a 15 point lead, but won and covered, in overtime, by a (31-24) count.

The error regarding which team was the favorite, by Schlabach is below.

“It wasn’t all bad for the SEC, though. Texas A&M upset No. 16 UCLA 31-24 in overtime, after the Aggies blew a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter. No. 18 Georgia came from behind to beat No. 22 North Carolina 33-24 in Atlanta”



The truth is often stranger than fiction. The only horse to ever win a race in which the great horse Man o War participated was named Upset, as pictured above.
