Weeks 10, 11, and 12 (7-1, 3-1 Big 12): Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas State

Texas A&M defeats Missouri 59-29

Next up is Missouri, who the Aggies played in 2012, so we won’t have to simulate it. The Aggies won, 59-29, over the Tigers. In the game, Johnny Manziel accounted for another five touchdowns, and the Aggies moved on to the next week with little fuss. .

Texas A&M defeats Oklahoma 41-13

In our new 2012, Oklahoma comes to town. In 2011 they defeated the Aggies 25-41. Again, we don’t have to run a simulation because these two teams played in 2012. The Aggies, in the Cotton Bowl, crushed the Sooners 41-13. Johnny proved to everyone that he deserved the Heisman, and wowed more college football viewers and Aggies everywhere.

Texas A&M defeats Kansas State 38-20

The 2011 game was a thriller, going to four overtimes before Kansas State won it, 53-50. They will be looking to stop Johnny Manziel and the Aggies in Kyle Field with games against Kansas and Texas looming.

2012 Kansas State ended the year 11-2, with losses to Baylor and Oregon. This 2012 will add one more to the list, as the Aggies take down the Wildcats by multiple scores. The game I highlighted was a 45-26 romp, where Ben Malena took over the game.

What Joseph Randle did to the Aggies, Malena did to the Wildcats. He ran the ball 13 times for 95 yards (averaging seven yards per carry), for three touchdowns, adding in a 48 yard run. He also caught three passes for 67 yards and two scores. 162 yards and five touchdowns on 16 touches is insane. Johnny was 25-31, with 398 yards and three touchdowns. He added 54 on the ground.
