The Florida Gators managed to beat the Texas A&M Aggies yesterday in College Station in a fiercely competitive matchup of SEC schools old and new. Both sides rode their defenses for most of the game and held a lot of the offense in check, which is why touchdowns were few and far between. Here's a look at the touchdown highlight package below.
As you can see, most of the touchdowns were of a red zone running nature. You'll get a zone-read here, then a quarterback draw there, then a Wildcat (WildAggie?) direct snap here, and then a toss play to cap it off. The tip-toeing by Mike Gillislee on the deciding score is pretty fun to watch.
But there were two highlight-worthy notes, and it came off a pretty cool trick play.
A&M had one of their men go in motion to one side as if to feint the screen, only to have the slot man come back to the quarterback and take the football. The slot receiver Kenric McNeal then found Mike Evans scooting down the sideline. Evans had originally been running toward the inside, then got back to the outside and positioned himself for a perfect catch.
The other came off a neat catch by Thomas Johnson from Johnny Manziel.
A&M had the top two highlights, but Florida walked away victorious.
