(ARLINGTON, Texas) — Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel threw for two touchdowns, ran for two more and had a Cotton Bowl-record 516 total yards as No. 9 Texas A&M cruised to a 41-13 win over No.11 Oklahoma Friday night.
Manziel scored a touchdown on the opening drive of the game and the Aggies (11-2), never looked back.
“To come in and go against a Big 12 rival and do everything we wanted as a team, and send these seniors out with a win, we couldn’t feel any better,” Manziel said after his first game since becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman.
After clinging to a 14-13 halftime lead, Manziel led the Aggies on three touchdown drives in the third quarter that culminated with a Ryan Swope 34-yard score on a fourth-down conversion.
Manziel also set an FBS bowl record with 229 rushing yards on 17 carries.
Landry Jones threw for 278 yards, one touchdown, and one interception as Oklahoma wrapped up its season with a 10-3 record.
