Missouri Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies: Live Scores, Analysis and Results
FINAL: Texas A&M 59, Missouri 29
Johnny Manziel made another strong addition to his case for the 2012 Heisman Trophy on Saturday night at Kyle Field as Texas A&M dominated Missouri 59-29 in a battle of Southeastern Conference newcomers.
The Aggies were in full control from start to finish in College Station, drubbing the Tigers on all three sides of the ball.
Johnny Football finished with more than 400 yards of total offense and five total touchdowns—three through the air and two on the ground.
Mizzou fought hard and began to pick up steam in the second half, but it was too little too late from the Tigers, as their inaugural SEC season will end with a 5-7 overall record.
Meanwhile, A&M will carry on to a potential BCS Bowl bid.

Texas A&M Interception
Texas A&M 59, Missouri 29—Fourth Quarter, 2:15
Berkstresser gives it back to A&M in the red zone and Missouri's season will come to an unfortunate end.
This season could have brought so much more for both teams, something I'll touch on in my recap.
There's Moe again for Mizzou after A&M's second consecutive punt. The Texas A&M second-team offense is looking like a second-team offense.
Missouri moving the ball a bit, but all that's left in this one is about four minutes on the clock until the fat lady sings.
I'm not the only one who thinks that Notre Dame doesn't deserve to win the national title right?
I can't be. I mean, I respect the Irish defense and Manti Te'o is a freak, but that offense is just terrible. They have some athletes too, but they just don't know how to properly move the football.
Texas A&M 59, Missouri 29—Fourth Quarter, 7:15
Beautiful throw from Berkstresser and an outstanding catch from Dorial Green-Beckham.
...then Mizzou's extra point is blocked.
Time to bring Manziel back in?

To do the math for you: 439 total yards, five total touchdowns
Yep, that's a great game.
Ah, a simple standing "O" for Johnny Football. I'm ok with that.
Texas A&M 59, Missouri 23—Fourth Quarter, 9:08
After that punt Johnny Manziel was putting his helmet back on. Somehow, I won't be surprised if he's still out there.
No, Steve Levy, no one would buy an Ed Cunningham action figure.
T.J. Moe with his first reception of the game! Sad to see such a great player go out in a blowout like this without even playing a major role in the contest.
Texas A&M Touchdown
Texas A&M 59, Missouri 23—Fourth Quarter, 12:07
Have you ever seen the cartoon, Peanuts?
Well, Mizzou is Charlie Brown and Johnny Manziel is Lucy, sticking the ball out then swiping it away at the last second.
Missouri falls flat on its back, as Manziel sneaks in for his second rushing touchdown of the game, giving him seven games this season with multiple rushing scores.
The Manziel continues. Kevin Sumlin shows no mercy.
Texas A&M 52, Missouri 23—Fourth Quarter, 13:48
Quarterback Corbin Berkstresser doing his best Blake Bell/Collin Klein impersonation, punching in that touchdown from one yard out, making it 13 unanswered points for the Tigers.
The bad news? Mizzou still trails by 29.
Manziel Heisman Update
As we enter the fourth, we may have seen the last of Johnny Football.
His stats tonight: 29-of-41, 322 YDS, 3 TD, 1 INT | 11 CAR, 66 YDS, 1 TD
End of Third Quarter
Texas A&M 52, Missouri 16—Start of Fourth Quarter
This one is all but sewn up, as A&M is up big. The dominance has tapered off here late in the third frame, but Mizzou's comeback chances are less-than-Hobbit-sized at this point.
Right when I expected this one to slow down, we have two scores and an interception in a matter of one minute and 30 seconds.
Mizzou on the move again with another first down.
Texas A&M 52, Missouri 16—Third Quarter, 1:55
What a disgrace! Manziel doesn't deserve the Heisman anymore.
Mizzou takes over after his eighth interception of the year, snared by E.J. Gaines.
Texas A&M 52, Missouri 16—Third Quarter, 2:29
Epitome of the night for Missouri. A huge touchdown as Berkstresser hits a wide open L'Damian Washington for a 74-yard touchdown—the longest play of the night.
Then the Tigers miss the extra point...
Texas A&M Field Goal
Texas A&M 52, Missouri 10—Third Quarter, 3:25
Texas A&M has now clipped half-a-hundred, as Tyler Bertolet nails a 50-yard field goal.
Also, a senior Aggie hit a huge milestone on senior night:
Come on, Aggies don't get chippy.
True freshman Trey Williams with just his second carry of the game, and he takes it for a huge game. He has the makings of a great back for years to come and will make a very dangerous backfield duo in Aggieland alongside Manziel.
Texas A&M 49, Missouri 10—Third Quarter, 5:09
Another drive stalls for the Tigers.
Nealy is incredibly disruptive up front for the Aggies.
I love that Clay Matthews Fathead commercial. "Not even football related—just a real hot pic."
