Texas A&M’s team hotel did their team a favor and lite up lights in the Texas A&M logo to show support for the team for the Cotton Bowl match up. The 9th ranked Texas A&M Aggies took on the 11th ranked Oklahoma Sooners. The Heisman trophy winner Johnny “Football” Manziel goes up against the stingy Sooner defense. Bob Stoops usually gets to bowl games but has trouble winning them. Regardless, what a cool gesture by the TAMU hotel. HT @DarrenRovell

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. 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...

Cotton notes: Stoops happy to be back in Oklahoma

The one that made the most sense was returning to Oklahoma as part of brother Bob's staff again. ''It's a great program, it's working with your brother, it's familiarity, and you get to coach some awfully talented players,'' Mike...

Way takes final stand toward significance

IRVING, Texas — For No. 11 Oklahoma, Jones is not the only Sooner ending his career where it all began. Four-year starter and senior punter Tress Way is set to boot away the final stage of his days at OU on Friday, Jan. 4, when the Sooners take on the No. 9 Aggies and Heisman-winning freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel inside Cowboys Stadium.

Bob Stoops Says Johnny Manziel Is Best QB Sooners Have Ever Faced

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...
