Why Texas A&M Will Win

Any credible college football fan  worth his keep would tell you that this game is going to be decided by the best player on the field. Football  gurus aren't going to deny the notion that one player will take center stage in this game: A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy.

Manziel's combination of daredevil scrambling and pinpoint passing enabled him to beat Alabama on the road. Manziel's quick rise to prominence has been accompanied by the ascendancy of Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin, who was named SEC Coach of the Year by his new peers. Sumlin made the jump from Conference USA in no time, dazzling SEC observers and making A&M a very relevant football brand in America's toughest conference.

The Aggies were stifled in the second halves of their two losses this season against Florida and LSU, but they've solved every other problem that's been thrown their way. A&M will take the field as a neutral-site favorite against Oklahoma, something that rarely if ever would have been the case during these schools' existences in the Big 12. The reason why A&M is favored is that Oklahoma doesn't have an imposing pass rush. If the Sooners can't contain Manziel in the pocket, the Aggies will win. They should.
