The Aggies fought, just as they have all year long. I sound like a broken record, but the toughness of these kids, their will, and football is important to them. And its fun to see the be rewarded. Reporter: 5 wins, first time since 2000?Coach: It’s a gigantic step in the right direction for this program. The senior’s goal when they put on their shirts at the first of the year was to leave a legacy. They are well on their way to getting that done at this point. Reporter: Turbin, again today, goes over 3000 for his career, sets three more records, wins the game winning touchdownCoach: He’s a special young man. He came to me and said, “Coach, thanks for having faith in me after I made a mistake.” There is no question about my faith in Turbin. We want the ball in his hands, where it should be. Reporter: That last drive, everything going against you. What’s going through your mind?Coach: It gets tough. Just keep looking at the kids. I just felt like if you got into a fourth down scenario we could get a stop, and obviously we were able to at the end. I liked their eyes in the overtime. They were excited about the opportunity to still be competing. I think this team feels confident in tight ball games. The credit goes 100% to the players.
