Texas A&M vs. Auburn 2012: Aggies humiliate host Tigers, 63-21

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel accounted for five touchdowns in a 63-21 rout of host Auburn.

The Texas A&M Aggies (6-2, 3-2 SEC) pummeled the host Auburn Tigers (1-7, 0-6) on Saturday, winning 63-21 behind the continued stellar play of Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Manziel ran for three touchdowns and threw for two more before being given the night off early in the second half. Manziel led the Texas A&M offense for eight possessions, ending in seven Aggies touchdowns. The only non-scoring drive was the result of a missed 48-yard field goal to end the first half.

The story, obviously, was the offensive display put on by the Aggies. SB Nation's Texas A&M blog Good Bull Hunting has more, with a special Halloween-spin:

KLIFF KINGSBURY IS GENE CHIZIK'S FREDDY KRUEGER -- After the Tiger defensive coaching staff leaves the stadium tonight, they will be looking over their shoulder for the monster that is Kliff Kingsbury. Statistically, this was the worst Auburn defensive performance in their history totaling 672 total yards. Let me repeat that -- WORST IN THEIR PROGRAM HISTORY. Auburn gave up 63 points on the night -- the second most to only Georgia Tech in 1917 when freaking John Heisman was coaching. I have been pretty critical of Kingsbury and his offensive play calling, but he put his doubters to rest tonight.

Texas A&M will take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs next Saturday. Mississippi State is coming off a 38-7 loss this weekend to No. 1 Alabama. It will be the second of three straight SEC road contest for the Aggies. Texas A&M will face Alabama two weeks from now.
