Texas A&M getting glowing reviews following win

The Texas A&M Aggies struggled early on defense, but ultimately crushed the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday.


A&M routing Arkansas after 3 quarters, 44-10

The Texas A&M Aggies added 17 points in the third quarter, and hold a 44-10 lead over the Arkansas Razorbacks as the two teams enter the fourth quarter in College Station, Texas.

Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel has thrown for 366 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for 98 yards. In addition to Manziel's masterful performance, the Texas A&M defense has forced three Arkansas turnovers, including a Knile Davis fumble that was returned 28 yards for a touchdown by Tramain Jacobs.

A missed field goal by Taylor Bertolet with a minute and a half left in the third quarter is the only thing keeping Texas A&M from being up even more. Arkansas certainly hasn't stopped them from moving the ball at will, as the Aggies have racked up 559 yards of total offense while scoring 37 straight points.

A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope added a couple of catches in the third quarter, and now has five receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown.


A&M dominates second quarter, holds 27-10 lead

The Texas A&M Aggies appear to be on their way to their first SEC victory, leading the Arkansas Razorbacks at halftime, 27-10.

A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was the star of the half, completing 17-of-21 passes for 254 yards and three touchdowns, while also racking up 81 yards on the ground on eight carries. Aggies wide receiver Ryan Swope was the main benefactor of Manziel's performance, catching three passes for 107 yards and a score.

Manziel got the Aggies on the board first, capping off a nine-play, 72-yard drive with a four-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans. Arkansas would answer with the final 10 points of the opening quarter, when Tyler Wilson connected with Knile Davis for a 64-yard touchdown. Zach Hooker tacked on a field goal to give the Razorbacks a 10-7 lead.

It was all A&M in the second quarter, though, with Taylor Bertolet nailing a couple field goals to reclaim the lead for the Aggies. Then Manziel took over, throwing touchdown passes to Swope and Ben Malena.

The Aggies put up 410 yards of total offense overall in the half, with the two teams combined for nearly 700.


Arkansas scores 10 unanswered points to lead A&M

Texas A&M scored first but the Arkansas Razorbacks came back with two scores of their own to take a 10-7 lead after one quarter. Both teams are looking for their first SEC win of the 2012 season.

A&M (2-1) scored on its first drive, going 72 yards for the opening score. The drive was capped by a touchdown pass from Johnny Manziel to Mike Evans. A&M's Taylor Bertolet missed a 39-yard field goal attempt that could have given the Aggies a 10-point lead.

Taking advantage of the missed field goal, Arkansas (1-3) scored on it's next possession when Knile Davis tied things up with a 64-yard touchdown catch down the left sideline. Davis caught a short pass from Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, broke a tackle and ran the rest of the way untouched for the Razorbacks first score.

Arkansas' Zach Hocker hit a 26-yard field goal with less than a minute left in the quarter to give the Razorbacks their first lead.

The game, being played at Kyle Field in College Station, can be seen on the SEC Network or online through WatchESPN.
