After two turnovers and a turnover on downs by Texas A&M in the first quarter, the Aggies continued their offensive struggles in the second quarter that included a Ryan Swope fumble. However, an interception returned for a touchdown late in the half tied up the score and gave the Aggies new life.
The Aggies began the second quarter with a 13-play, 81-yard drive that again didn't result in a touchdown as they were forced to settle for a 19-yard Taylor Bertolet field goal that tied the score, 10-10.
After being the beneficiaries of a missed field goal by Ole Miss, the Aggies weren't so lucky on the next Rebels drive, as they connected on a 68 yard pass before Bo Wallace ran 14 yards for a touchdown.
Johnny Manziel connected with Swope for 38 yards on the next drive, but the Texas A&M offense again shot itself in the foot as Swope fumbled the ball away. The defense came to the rescue, though, when Steven Jenkins intercepted a Wallace pass and returned it for a game-tying touchdown.
