ESPN announced Texas A&M has been nominated for three ESPYs on Wednesday, including awards for Best Game, Best Play and Best Sports Viral Moment.
A&M football’s 74-72 win against Louisiana State University was nominated for Best Game. The Aggies topped LSU in a seven overtime game during their regular season finale at Kyle Field on Nov. 24. The game became the highest scoring game in FBS history. Other nominations in this category include Los Angeles Rams’ 51-54 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football and Notre Dame against University of Connecticut in the Final Four.
Track and Field junior, Infinite Tucker secured two nominations for the Aggies.
Tucker was nominated for Best Play and Best Sports Viral Moment, for his dive to the finish line in the 400 meter hurdles at the SEC Championships to take first place. Tucker will face 16 other Best Plays for the coveted ESPY, and will face three others for Best Sports Viral Moment.
The ESPYs will be held July 10 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA. The event will be broadcasted on ESPN and is set to start at 8 p.m. Central.
