Texas A&M sweeps team titles at NCAA meet

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Texas A&M has swept the team titles at the NCAA track and field championships.

The Aggies won the men's title in dramatic fashion on Saturday, finishing with 48 points after a second-place showing in the 1,600-meter relay. That was the final event of the day, and if Texas A&M had finished one spot lower, it would have ended up in a four-way tie for the championship with Florida, Florida State and Oregon.

The women's race was less tense. Texas A&M finished with 50 points, seven ahead of Oregon.

The Oregon men were seeking a rare "Triple Crown" after winning titles in cross country and indoor track and field earlier this season.

Florida State had won the last three men's outdoor titles.
