COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Nick Marshall accounted for four scores and No. 24 Auburn battered Johnny Manziel in a 45-41 win over No. 7 Texas A&M on Saturday.
Tre Mason's 5-yard score with less than 2 minutes to play was first placed at the 1, but it was reviewed and ruled a touchdown.
A&M (5-2, 2-2 SEC) had a last chance, but Manziel, the Heisman Trophy winner, was sacked by Dee Ford on fourth down to secure the win.
Manziel threw for 454 yards and four touchdowns and ran for a fifth score, but was intercepted twice. He missed a series in the fourth quarter with an apparent injury to his right arm or shoulder. He returned but was constantly moving his right arm.
Marshall threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 100 yards and two more scores for Auburn (6-1, 3-1), which lost 63-21 to the Aggies last season.
Texas A&M's Mike Evans had a school-record 287 yards receiving with four touchdowns to become the first player in school history to have two, 200-yard receiving games in a career. He scored on receptions of 26, 64, 42 and 33 yards.
Auburn entered the game leading the SEC with 287 yards rushing a game and piled up 379 yards rushing against the Aggies. Mason led the way with 178 yards and Corey Grant added 45.
Manziel connected with Evans for his fourth TD on a 33-yard pass -- that Auburn was called for pass interference on -- giving A&M a 31-24 lead late in the third quarter.
Manziel was injured when he was tackled on an 8-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

Everyone else drools.
See what happens when you get rid of a bad coach?
Are you listening Jeremy Foley?
WAR DAMN EAGLE!
Yeah, thanks to a missed horsecaller penalty with 18 seconds left. Bob
I just plain like seeing Texas lose
I have to say I was surprised Mizzou beat the gators.
They are not south or east!
Great Game!!! War Eagle!
Things are looking pretty good for the Iron Bowl game this year. Now after this . . . watch out Roll Tide. They only took a small pep band to College Station today so being a sophomore . . . she didn’t get to go.
I’d love for my daughter who is in the marching band at Auburn, second year, to get to go to a bowl game or even the National Championship! What a turn around from last season.
She’s had friends from high school that we ahead of her get to go and play in the half time show for Auburn, and a few more to Alabama x 2 championships and sure would be sweet for Auburn to go again!
I knew Mizzou would kill us.
Muschamp has lost the team. You could see it on the sideline, he can’t coach.
Looks like Mizzou vs Bama/Auburn for the SEC Title. LSU is losing to Ole Miss.
Looked like just the jersey . . .watched the play twice. ?
With all the cameras and reviews they missed it?
I guess the fake fall down injury by A&M was missed too so who knows?
It was a good game. I don’t like the outcome but it is what it is.
I knew it! I’m turning my timer off for AL/AR and turn that game on!
I like both teams just about the same. My guess was that A&M would come back and win in the last minute.
It didn’t happen and Auburn deserved their win.
Yup, I didn’t know Mr. Ma Goo was allowed on the college football fields without his Coke bottle glasses. Bad call by the refs on that one.
whatever dude. it was all jersey not pads.
WAR DAMN EAGLE!
yeah that was sooooo obvious. great karma though - next play Auburn touchdown!
War Eagle! We sent Clint Jr, and friend, to the Championship in Phoenix for his Christmas present back then.
Holy Carp! Ole Miss is kicking LSU arse!
Who would have thought that by next week, Missouri could pretty much have the SEC East wrapped up?
It’s definitely moving day in the SEC, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, A&M and looks like LSU are all going down.
It was a great game. Heartpounding even.
I was pulling for Auburn bigtime. Glad to see that cocky little Manziel go down in defeat. Looks like we’ll have an exciting Iron Bowl this year. If Ole Miss holds on and beats LSU tonight, Auburn would have a shot at the SEC title game (aka the National Championship game).
They missed those 30+ holding penalties on the A&M offensive linemen too.
Moving Day doesn’t explain it. Tenn, Valpo in the top 25 now? That makes 9!
SEC Rules! Everyone else Drools!
Florida won’t be in the Top 25, that’s for sure.
I hope mine get a chance to go . . . sometime soon.
Let’s say for the sake of argument Mizzou runs the table....Do they get in over Oregon or FSU if they also go unbeaten. (FSU is tanning Clemson’s hide so far)
That’s a tough call. Mizzou beating BAMA should count for a lot. But so would FSU beating Clemson, Miami, and the Gators in the Swamp. I’ll go with Mizzou and FSU in the title game. Screw the Pac-12.
My ultimate nightmare Championship Game.....FSU vs Ohio State.
I think I’d root for a meteor strike in the middle of the field if that matchup happens.
It’s all fixed. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
WAR DAMN EAGLE!
Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson are Auburn haters.
GO Ole Miss!
oh get over yourself
It’s 17-14 now, LSU is coming back.
One of my morning coffee buddies is a retired vet, Auburn grad. His son-in-law’s dad was A & M. My namesake and grandfather was Auburn. My family is infected from top to bottom with LSU people. If only we could get all these folks who invest all this emotion in a game to put the same effort into politics, Obama would be just a bad dream...
Ole Miss just scored!
boom up the middle
Now Ole Miss needs to bear down on defense.
full disclosure...I loves me some Johnny Football and honestly...I could care less if he played for the Wizahacken Boys Club....he is plum fun to watch
A.&M. has many freshman on defense. They allowed Rice to score 31 points in the early season. That should have been
the warning -but nothing can be done about it. Most teams that A.&M. played this season have run up scores to the 40somethins.
You cant expect the QB to score into the 50s to win the game.
gonna be tough......ball game on Fox is still nada y nada
but oh what a future
The man I was dating and I went to Scottsdale. The night before the game, his 2 sons decided they wanted to go. Well, one came without a ticket so guess who did not get to go. Yep, little ole me. I have no ties to AU except through him and he played there. As it turns out, that was probably the best decision I could have made. His dr told him in March that he has ms so he probably can not go to any more bowl games. The 3 of them will have that memory forever. I went to State.
Johnny Football ain’t no Cam Newton. But he’s SEC so he’s got the nuts.
