It was the Johnny Manziel show once more for No. 9 Texas A&M, as the Aggies destroyed the Missouri Tigers on Saturday night, 59-29.

Manziel threw three touchdowns in the second quarter as the Aggies jumped to a 42-0 lead in a dominant first half. Texas A&M produced more than 400 yards of offense in the first half alone, with Missouri not finding much space on offense until a late touchdown drive in the final minute of the second quarter.

The Aggies stuck with the Heisman hopeful at quarterback in the second half, as Manziel added two rushing touchdowns to extend the Texas A&M lead to 59-23 in in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter. The Tigers offense finally woke up in the second half to make the score respectable, but it was too little, too late for quarterback Corbin Berkstresser and Missouri.

The Aggies finish the season 10-2 in their first year in the SEC, capped by big wins over No. 15 Mississippi State and No. 1 Alabama.

Box Score Hero: Johnny Manziel likely put the winning bid in for the Heisman on Saturday, going 32-of-44 for 372 yards and three touchdowns, adding two rushing touchdowns and 67 yards on 12 carries.

Rankings Ramifications: The Aggies finished the season on a very strong note but might find it tough moving further up from No. 9.

But Did They Cover? Texas A&M easily covered the 23-point spread.
