Florida Vs. Texas A&M 2012: Final Score And Game Recap

Despite earning a ten-point lead in the second quarter and consistently harassing Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel throughout Saturday's game, the Texas A&M Aggies were unable to beat the Gators and lost 20-17.

Freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel looked very good in the loss for the Aggies completing 22 of 29 pass attempts for 169 yards. He also added 63 yards rushing and gave Texas A&M the lead in the second quarter with an 11-yard touchdown run.

However, the Aggies were unable to score in the second half at all and gave up a 12-yard touchdown run to Mike Gillislee early in the fourth quarter to fall behind. Despite, eight sacks of Gators quarterback Driskel, the Aggies never forced a turnover and lost the game of field position.

Box Score Hero: Texas A&M junior defensive lineman Damontre Moore recorded three sacks in the first half alone as the Aggies line terrorized Florida.

Rankings Ramifications:*Florida entered the game as No. 24 in the AP Poll while Texas A&M earned some votes, but did not appear on the rankings. The win may be enough to move the Gators up the poll some, but they were unimpressive in victory for a second straight week so don't expect a surge.

But Did They Cover? Texas A&M were one-point favorites and were unable to cover.
