Texas A&Ms defense stands tall in second half

ARLINGTON, Texas The Texas A&M defense wasn't frustrated that the Oklahoma Sooners ran off 51 plays and scored 13 points in the first half of Friday's Cotton Bowl. The defensive unit was just mad that they weren't getting the ball back for the Johnny Manziel-led offense often enough. That changed in the third quarter. The Wrecking Crew forced three-and-outs...

Manziel shows A&M is better off without Big 12

ARLINGTON, Texas A euphoric group A&M players had congregated in perfectly symmetrical lines in the corner of the end zone at JerryWorld. Arms locked.

Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma: 3 Bold Predictions For The Cotton Bowl

In 2013, Texas A&M made a major change to the college football landscape. The Aggies, along with Missouri, left the Big 12 and headed for the SEC.
