On Saturday, Texas A&M was both the unstoppable force and the immovable object.

With a defensive performance that held South Carolina to just 15 yards through three quarters and a running game that amassed 290 yards, South Carolina was blown out by a score of 44-14.

Here is some of the national reaction to the emphatic victory:

Texas A&M 44, South Carolina 14 (final).

No. 17 Aggies (6-2) have won three in a row and are 3-2 in SEC play.

Devon Achane (154 yards) and Isaiah Spiller (102) both surpass the century mark. A&M outgains the Gamecocks 477-185.

Aggies are off next week; host Auburn on Nov. 6.

Port Neches-Groves alum Blake Bost is in the game for Texas A&M! Great experience for the true freshman walk-on. #409Sports #GigEm

If Ainias Smith is the Swiss Army knife in Texas A&M's offense, he's a really sharp and scary one. Smith goes 95 yards on a punt rturn to put A&M up 7-0 early on South Carolina.
