Texas A&M routs Sooners

Woodward, Okla. — By John Shinn

CNHI News Service

ARLINGTON, Texas — Only 15 minutes ran off the clock. It was like 15 seconds of tranquility for Texas A&M. For Oklahoma it was a nightmare that seemed like 15 years.

It was the third quarter. It was when a one-point game erupted into a 41-13 Sooner loss to Texas A&M in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic at Cowboys Stadium.

How lopsided was it?

It was like the novice skier against an avalanche. Texas A&M rolled downhill for 20 unanswered points. The Sooners were just engulfed.

The Aggies were nothing like the team OU dominated during their 16 years as conference rivals. Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 229 and two more scores on his way to offensive MVP honors.

Landry Jones, who made his 50th and final career start Friday night threw for 278 yards and a 6-yard touchdown pass to Justin Brown late in the second quarter that at least gave the impression the Sooners had a chance.

It quickly ended in the third quarter. Manziel engineered three straight touchdown drives. OU didn’t get a first down until late in the third quarter.

By the time it did, the “Aggie War Hymn” was reaching a deafening level, followed by “S-E-C” chants.

Like everything else, there was nothing OU could do to stop it.
