The Aggies extended their lead to 61-0 at the end of the third quarter before emptying the bench.
KU's first half was one to forget. The Jayhawks had a snap over punter Ron Doherty's head for a safety and also a lost a fumble when a snap hit running back Tony Pierson, who was going in motion before the play.
The Jayhawks also surrendered a 72-yard punt return for TD to Dustin Harris in the second half.
A&M's Ryan Tannehill finished 21-for-26 passing for 280 yards and three touchdowns before getting taken out in the second half.
KU's Jordan Webb finished 19-for-27 for 133 yards passing with an interception.
The Jayhawks (2-9) will close the season with a 2:30 p.m. game on Nov. 26 against Missouri at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.
