Texas A&M Football: Johnny Manziel Prevails In His Last Game As An Aggie

The Texas A&M football team may have looked as if they were going to lose early in the game last night, but perhaps that was just a tease for all of the fans.

Last night’s game was a game of two halves, and while Texas A&M was not able to put up the offense that was expected in the first half, they completely turned the game around in the second half, dominating on the offensive end, and shutting down Duke defensively.

Johnny Manziel has been in the spotlight throughout the past two years, earning himself a trip to the Heisman ceremony both years.

Despite his successful season, he did not win this year, but he was among the top six finalists.

The Heisman candidate of the Texas A&M Aggies certainly showed up in the second half, and gave the team a total of 52 points by the end. They edged Duke in the end with a score of 52-48 in a close, and high scoring game.

In what is likely to be Johnny Manziel’s last game of college football, he showed up with an impressive performance and threw four touchdown passes, completed 30 of 38 passes for 382 yards and ran for 73 yards and a touchdown.

As he knew that he may never play another college game, and with an incredible career at Texas A&M, this was clearly an important game for him. Speaking about the game, Johnny Manziel said “I was in a zone I haven’t been in before. Ever. I just wanted this game.”

While they were forced to come back in the game, it is certainly not the first time that Johnny Football has done it. The Aggies were down 38-17, but with the help of Johnny Manziel, the teams combined to make the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl the highest-scoring game that the bowl has ever had

Texas A&M advanced to 9-4 on the season with their bowl win, and prevented Duke from winning a bowl again. Duke has not won a bowl game since beating Arkansas 7-6 in the 1961 Cotton Bowl.

While some people may judge Johnny Manziel’s character and say that he is too cocky as a player, he had positive things to say about Duke over twitter after the game.

The Texas A&M defense did not stop Duke much, but that didn’t seem to matter once Johnny Manziel started showing what the team was capable of offensively. They have had one of the worst defenses throughout the season, and Texas A&M ranked last in the Southeastern Conference and 105th in the nation in total defense. They were also 88th in the nation in scoring defense.

Johnny Manziel impressed the fans and everyone else again last night as Texas A&M piled on the points in an impressive comeback win.

  • Wow

    Manziel is the best QB in college football. If you watched that game last night, you saw that. Without him, Texas A&M will be screwed.

    You knew he wasn’t going to win the Heisman again at the beginning of the season. Everyone was out to crucify the kid. But at the end of the day, he is the best QB. He doesn’t have Florida State’s or Alabama’s defense. That is for certain. Not even close.

    Yeah, he is a good QB, but as a duke fan, I would have liked to watch the game without hearing “Johnny Football” every play of the game. “Oh, Johhny takes a seat on the bench” “Oh, Johnny gets a drink of water” Shut up already, But Duke was clearly the better team, two mistakes in the 4th cost them the game.

      Some people will always be inept morons.

    • Wow

      He will make it in about three months. You can take that to the bank and I am not even a Texas A&M fan. You may not like the guy, but to say he won’t make it is crazy. He will and he will be fun to watch. That game last night was just fun to watch.

      I tip my hat to the Duke team too. They played great. Just two good teams going at it.
