The 75th Cotton Bowl between Texas A&M and LSU featured quite a few Dallas-Fort Worth area high school products. Here's how they fared:
TEXAS A&M AGGIES
RB Cyrus Gray (DeSoto): 20 carries for 100 yards (7th straight game 100+). Also completed a 14-yard pass and caught another for 9 yards. With 109 total yards, Gray became the second player in A&M history to surpass 5,000 yards in career all-purpose yardage (5,023) -- joining Darren Lewis (5,138 yards from 1987-90).
WR Jeff Fuller (McKinney Boyd): 7 catches for 83 yards. Finished tied with Ryan Swope for the team lead with a school-record 72 receptions this season. He also surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the season -- the first in Texas A&M history.
