The Texas A&M Football team ran the Oklahoma Sooners out of Cowboys Stadium in their 41-13 Cotton Bowl victory on January 4th. The game featured multiple outstanding performances by the upperclassmen on the Aggie football team.
The bowl win was the second in a row for A&M, but the first Cotton Bowl victory for the Ags since the 1988 Cotton Bowl against Notre Dame. The game represented a sort of exorcism of demons for the Aggies who have historically struggled against the Sooners.
Some early miscues kept the game close at the half, but A&M outscored OU, 27-0, in the second half to leave no doubt. The victory represented another example of the dominance of the Southeastern Conference, as the team tied for second place in the SEC West blew out the Big 12 co-champion.
If there was any question as to just how good this A&M team was, the Cotton Bowl victory was a resounding answer. This is a look at how each of the 22 starters in the game performed against the Sooners.
