Texas A&M, Arkansas in old-fashioned Southwest Conference shootout

Texas A&M and Arkansas have been piling up the yardage in the first half. The two SEC West rivals have racked up over 580 yards of offense in the first half and Texas A&M is leading the Razorbacks 24-20 at the half.

Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel has completed 18-of-23 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns and leads the Texas A&M ground game with 49 rushing yards. His counterpart for Arkansas, Brandon Allen, is back in the starting line-up and has the Razorbacks moving the football well as well. Allen has completed 10-of-18 attempts for 168 yards and two touchdowns to help keep Arkansas from allowing Texas A&M to run away with this one.

Texas A&M did lose their leading receiver at one point in the first half. Sophomore receiver Mike Evans had to be helped off the field after hauling in a remarkable touchdown in the end zone, after Manziel extended the play. It looked as though he had hurt his leg after leaping up in the air and coming down with the football in traffic in the end zone. Evans came in to this weekend leading Texas A&M in receiving yards and caught two touchdowns in the first half.

Texas A&M has not trailed in this game but it has been a pretty good back-and-forth type game thus far. This should be an entertaining second half coming our way between these old Southwest Conference foes.

    Would that make that 85-point affair between Georgia and LSU the “new-fashioned” SEC shootout? I kept waiting for a defense to show up.

    The announcer said Lambo is used to getting 1 for a kick but now he gets 3. He was a Goalie though. I’m still waiting for the correction.

    ^^^After one of Lambo’s XPs they gave the point to Arkansas…. good luck with that correction.
