Texas A&M Aggies
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Entering the 2013 Cotton Bowl, there was legitimate fear amongst Texas A&M fans that maybe, just maybe, Johnny Manziel had too much fun on the postseason awards circuit. In their defense, you can see why, since Manziel seemingly spent more time over the last month hanging out with LeBron James, Megan Fox and the Jonas Brothers than he did in the film room. And while no one could blame Manziel for making the choices he did (I mean come on, we are talking about Megan Fox here), many thought it might cost him against Oklahoma on Friday night.
Yeah, about that.
If Johnny Manziel wasn’t focused on Friday night, well, the college football world might as well just get set to hand him the next couple Heisman’s and A&M a couple BCS title trophies too. In front of a national audience, Manziel put up a performance for the ages, gashing Oklahoma’s defense for 516 yards of total offense and four touchdowns in an easy breezy 41-13 Aggies win.
For Manziel, it was another banner ev...
BEST OF MAXIM
There might not be a collegiate athlete in the country who enjoys his celebrity status more than Johnny Manziel. The Heisman Trophy winner has been living it up the past several months.

And while Manziel started a trend becoming the first freshman in history to win...

For those who doubted that Johnny Manziel could continue his magical season as quarterback of the Texas A&M Aggies, the Heisman Trophy winner must have removed any doubt with his incredible performance in the 2013 Cotton Bowl, resulting in a 41-13 romp over the Oklahoma Sooners.

Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M had an emphatic answer for everybody who wondered how Texas A&M would do in the SEC.
Led by their Heisman Trophy-winning freshman quarterback, the 10th-ranked Aggies won 11 games, including an upset of then-No. 1 Alabama, and never trailed while winning the last six. They capped their SEC debut season with a 41-13 Cotton Bowl victory over former...

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...
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. Swaying, per tradition as the Aggie War Hymn played and The 12th Man sang in unison.
It was one of those amazing scenes you only get from college football. And it was at this moment quarterback Johnny Manziel executed his best...

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical of what Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman winner Johnny Manziel would do in the Cotton Bowl after his whirlwind world tour.
Manziel stopped by Letterman, hit the stage with country stars, bought his own courtside seats to a Mavericks game, and played golf with the Jonas Brothers.
I wasn’t sure he would have enough time to practice...

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. While Mizzou struggled mightily, Texas A&M played exceptionally well. The Aggies lost just two games, both close contests to top 10 teams (Florida & LSU). Now, the Aggies face an old Big 12 rival, the Oklahoma Sooners. OU...
