Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel continued his story book season by throwing for 372 yards and three touchdown and running for two more scores to lead the Aggies to a 59-29 thrashing of the Missouri Tigers on Saturday night in College Station, Texas.
Manziel suffered a knee sprain early in the game and the sellout crowd was in shock as their “Johnny Football” was helped off the field. But Manziel did return to play and led the route of the Tigers. Texas A&M built a 42-0 first half lead before Kendial Lawrence finally scored on a four yard run in the 2nd quarter to get Mizzou on the scoreboard.
Corbin Berkstresser started at quarterback for the Tigers in place of the injured James Franklin, who was suffering from concussion symptoms. Berkstresser threw for 276 yards and two touchdowns while throwing one interception. L;Damian Washington and Dorial Green-Beckham caught the two Berkstresser TD passes.
The Tigers close out their season with an overall record of 5-7 and a 2-6 mark in their first season in the SEC.
