10. Dagger in Tuscaloosa
We will revisit this game later on, but it was one of the most important games of the 2012 season. To set this up, Texas A&M was up by six to an Alabama team that was well on its way back into the thick of competing in the game. The Aggie offense had stalled several times, and was seemingly unable to score after a fast first quarter. This drive was another quick strike, and the particular play was set up by a beautiful 42 yard pass to Ryan Swope.
The other play from this game was an absolute perfect throw from Johnny to sophomore wide receiver Malcome Kennedy to put the Aggies up by 12 in the thrilling 29-24 victory over the Tide. Alabama was charging back into this game, and were down 23-17 at the time.
The only Aggie points in the second half to this point had come from a field goal from Taylor Bertolet. The Tide had outscored the Aggies 17-3 since the end of the 1st quarter. This throw proved to be the difference on the scoreboard, after Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron was picked on the goal line on the Tide’s last chance.
