Our next-to-last installment of SEC football review looks at Texas A&M’s two years in the SEC. Those would be the Johnny Manziel years.
The A&M quarterback won the Heisman Trophy as a redshirt freshman in 2012, leading the Aggies to a 11-2 record and a 6-2 mark in their SEC debut. A&M lost 20-17 to Florida in its season opener and SEC debut. The Aggies lost 24-19 at home to LSU. That’s it. They scored 70 points against South Carolina State, 63 at Auburn and 59 against Missouri.
Oh yeah, they also beat eventual national champion Alabama, 29-24 in Tuscaloosa.
Last season, the Aggies ended up 9-4 overall and 4-4 in the SEC. They lost 49-42 at home to Alabama in week 3 and lost back-to-back games at LSU and Missouri to close out the regular season. In the Chick-fil-A Bowl, A&M staged a huge second-half comeback to beat Duke, 52-48.
And Johnny Manziel decided to leave College Station for the NFL Draft.
