Texas A&Ms 59-29 route of Missouri on Kyle Field was once again led by the transcendant freshman quarterback, Johnny Manziel.
He finished the game with five touchdowns and broke the SEC single season total offense record beating out Cam Newton and Tim Tebow in the process.
Manziel went down in the game with a knee injury and returned to fuel yet another lopsided A&M victory. He may have led the Heisman Trophy voting before A&Ms final game of the regular season but his effort Saturday may have sealed the deal writes Chris Huston of CBS Sports.
Johnny Manziels 372 passing yards, 67 rushing yards and five total touchdowns in Texas A&Ms 59-29 rout of Missouri puts him on the verge of a historic first, Huston said. Simply put, by virtue of his record-breaking performance this season, the fabulous dual-threat quarterback has all-but-clinched the 2012 Heisman Trophy, which means hes set to become the first freshman in the 78 years of the award to be so honored.
Despite leading the race by a slim margin going into one of the final weeks of regular season play, Manziel was able to pull off miraculous plays to add on to his already spectacular highlight reel.
Huston writes that if the votes were submitted this week they would be Manziel at No. 1 and Notre Dames Manti Teo at No. 2 with Collin Klein, Braxton Miller and Marqise Lee following.
Huston also notes that Manziel would be the first freshman to win college footballs prestigious award but would be the second player hailing from Tyler, Texas to win it as Earl Campbell won in 1997.
That QB Tivy has now may be a contender as well, if when he gets up there.
He was pretty slippery when we played em in Seguin... Very Quick.
But there sure were a lot of complaints about the Refs in Kerrville from thier opponents at K Tivy’s homegames.
