Meteorologist goes crazy on air after learning of Texas A&M’s upset of Alabama

The Texas A&M Aggies pulled off the biggest upset of the 2021 college football season Saturday night when they knocked off the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas. Texas A&M kicked a field goal as time expired to win the game by a score of 41-38.

One Texas A&M fan who happens to be a meteorologist for WQAD in Illinois could not contain her excitement as she learned of the upset while giving a live weather report. Prior to giving the report, Effrage Davis talked about how close the game was before the Aggies eventually pulled off the win.

Check out the video of the hilarious moment below.

The loss snapped a 19-game winning stream for the Crimson Tide. Saban also discussed how his team plans to bounce back from the loss.

“Well, this is the second time we’ve won 19 games in a row,” he said, via BamaOnLine. “I think if you look back in the record book, we won 19 games in a row and went to South Carolina and played about like we played today and got beat. So I don’t know the psychology of all that, but it really is not when you get to the game. When you get to the game, everybody wants to win. Everybody wants to play well. It’s what did you do to get the game? How did you prepare? How did you practice? What kind of habits did you create so you can carry those things to the game? And that’s what sort of eliminates bad plays. You’ve gotta give the other team credit. They’re capable of making plays. Their guys are on scholarship, too. But when you don’t do things like you think you need to do them, then that’s because what kind of habits did you create in preparation.

“So practice, how you take care of yourself, rest, recovery, all those things contribute to how you play in games. And I think all those things also are contributed to by what your sense of purpose is. If you’ve got a great sense of purpose in what you wanna accomplish and you wanna do, usually you create pretty good habits to do it because it’s important to you. And I think when the game comes, everybody wants to win, but we need to do things better to get ready to play better, especially when we’re playing on the road, especially when we’re playing against really good teams. And I don’t know of anybody in our division that’s not a really good team. So if we don’t play really well, we’ll struggle against anybody we play against.”
