Aggies, Manziel Complete Huge Year with Blowout of Oklahoma
Back in the late Summer of 2012 who could’ve seen this coming. Texas A&M was about to go head first into the toughest conference in college football sporting a new coaching staff, offensive system, and a freshman quarterback. Flash forward to present day and the Aggies have a Heisman winner in Johnny Manziel and they just completed one of their best seasons in recent memory, finishing 11-2 on the season after beating the Oklahoma Sooners at the Cotton Bowl, 41-13.
College football will soon turn to a select team playoff at the end of the year to determine the national champion, if that were in play this year and the Aggies made the final cut, they could’ve taken it all as Texas A&M is one of the hottest teams in college football right now.
Last night at the Cotton Bowl, Johnny Manziel just proved too much for the Sooners as his creative and athletic abilities allowed the Aggies to pull away in the 2nd half. The Heisman winner was responsible for over 500 yards in total yardage as he passed for 287 yards and rushed for 229.
Also in last night’s game, former Lufkin defensive line stand out, OU senior Jamarkus McFarland, played his last game as a collegiate athlete.
The first time in quite some time, Aggie fans are with great reason brimming with excitement at what the future holds for Texas A&M football. Could Johnny come marching home in the future with a National Championship for the Aggies? I’m certainly not going to bet against it.
