The Texas A&M Aggies lead the Mississippi State Bulldogs 14-0 after one quarter. The Bulldogs started the game with the ball and looked to be off to a good start before a false start penalty and sack put the them in a second-and-21 situation that they could not rebound from.
The Aggies took over at their own 27 yard line and quarterback Johnny Manziel went to work. Manziel kept the first snap and ran for eight yards. He then connected with Ryan Swope to move the ball to midfield. The Aggie march continued into Bulldog territory before Manziel hit Mike Davis for a gain of 24 yards that put the ball at the Bulldog 12 yard line. Two plays later, Manziel handed off to running back Ben Malena, who took the ball in for the one-yard touchdown.
After trading punts, the Aggies used another long scoring drive to take the two-touchdown lead, capped by a Christine Michael 22-yard run.
