Late Field Goal Lead Texas A&M Over Nebraska

The Sports Network for 105.3 The Fan

College Station (Sports Network) – Randy Bullock’s 19-yard field goal with three minutes remaining provided the difference, and 18th-ranked Texas A&M remained unbeaten with Ryan Tannehill at quarterback with a 9-6 victory over ninth-ranked Nebraska.

Tannehill, who was installed as the signal-caller following a midseason three- game slump, helped the Aggies (8-3, 5-2) to its fifth straight win after throwing for 172 yards on 19-of-29 efficiency. Cyrus Gray ran for 137 yards on 26 carries and added nine receptions for 65 yards in the victory.

Taylor Martinez left the game for a majority of the first half with an ankle injury but returned in the second half and finished with 107 yards passing and an interception on 11-of-17 throws for Nebraska (9-2, 5-2), which squandered an opportunity to wrap up the Big 12 North and instead will have to win next week against Colorado or have Missouri lose to Kansas to do so.

In Martinez’s absence, Cody Green threw for 57 yards on 6-of-11 throws and was intercepted once.

Both teams struggled on offense throughout the contest; Nebraska went 5-for-15 on third down conversions, while Texas A&M was 2-for-13.

    16-2 penalties. Why on earth is this not in the story? That is the story. If Texas A&M is thumping their chest over this one they are fools.

      Thank you! The Texas fans must turn a blind eye to this just so they can say they won!! Did you see the video of the Texas player Jerod-Edie #83, is pinching Nebraska’s Ben Cotton in the leg? Everyone wondered why he got a flag for trying to kick him away!!
