OU punts, A&M scores to start second half
By Richard Durrett
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Oklahoma punted for the first time in the game just a few minutes into the second half. It was an important stop for the A&M defense, which looked tired at the end of the first half.
The Aggie offense then took the ball 91 yards on seven plays. The most exciting play was probably Johnny Manziel's eight-yard scamper where he avoided two tacklers with quick moves. A deep pass to Ryan Swope helped, too.
The drive ended with a 7-yard TD run from Ben Malena to give the Aggies a 21-13 advantage with 10:26 left in the quarter. Manziel has 136 yards passing and 146 yards rushing.
