After the first half of play in Texas A&M's first-ever SEC game, the Aggies are faring very well against the famed SEC speed, leading the Florida Gators, 17-10.
Freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel completed 15 of his 19 passing attempts in the first half for 138 yards and added 51 yards rushing on eight carries. Early in the second quarter, an 11-yard touchdown run by Manziel gave the Aggies the lead and they have not relinquished it.
Defensively, Texas A&M has consistently harassed Florida quarterback Jeff Driskell, recording five first-half sacks already. The sole touchdown by the Gators was a 4-yard run by Mike Gillislee late in the first quarter and a 51-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis late in the half cut the Aggies lead to seven.
Aggies junior defensive lineman Damontre Moore recorded three sacks in the first half alone.
