making a splash in their first season in the Southeastern Conference, the
Aggies of Texas A&M faced an old Big 12 foe in the AT&T Cotton Bowl in
the Oklahoma Sooners. Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback
Johnny Manziel picked up right where he left off in the regular season, racking
up over 500 total yards to help Texas A&M down OU by a final score of 41-13
found the end zone on a pair of rushing touchdowns in the first half, but two
field goals from Oklahoma’s
Michael Hunnicut and a six-yard score from Justin Brown kept the Sooners within
one point at the break. But after the half, it was all Aggies.
A&M running back Ben Malena struck first in the third quarter with a
seven-yard touchdown scamper, which Trey Williams followed up with a 30-yard
scoring run of his own. Later in the third, Manziel found Ryan Swope on the
outside for a 33-yard score, before capping the scoring early in the fourth on
another bomb to Uzoma Nwachukwu for the touchdown.
Aggies stymied the Sooners after the half, holding quarterback Landry Jones and
company off the scoreboard in the final 30 minutes of action. Manziel dazzled
as he had all season long, wrapping up the game with 516 total yards – 287
through the air and an FBS bowl record 229 yards on the ground – to go along
with four total touchdowns, capping off his Heisman season in dramatic fashion.
