Auburn managed to get on the board before halftime, but Texas A&M scored three more times and entered the break with a 42-7 advantage.
Tigers quarterback Jonathan Wallace led his team to two touchdowns in the third quarter, throwing for a pair of scores, but it didn’t put a dent in the Aggies lead as they continued to pour it on.
Box Score Hero: Manziel had a huge game, completing 16 of his 23 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns and racking up 90 yards and three scores on nine carries.
