COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Just when Texas A&M appeared to have climbed back into the game with momentum, freshman Marquis Goodwin provided a huge play.

Goodwin returned a kickoff 95 yards for touchdown to extend Texas' lead to 49-39 with 6:57 left.

It came after A&M had the Kyle Field roaring drive after a scoring drive of its own. On the previous play from scrimmage, Jerrod Johnson and Jeff Fuller hooked up on a 20-yard TD pass.

Goodwin's touchdown gave the Longhorns a two-score advantage that looks huge.

It also boosted the total points in the game to 88, making it the highest scoring contest in the 116-game history of the series. The previous high was 85 points in the 1977 game, when Texas posted a 57-28 victory.

But if the game tonight has taught us anything -- with more than 1,000 yards of total offense -- brace yourself for more scoring.
