Manziel, Texas A&M rallies past Rebels

Ole Miss’ game with Texas A&M on Saturday night at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium came down to one play, which play was more important, however, is up for debate.

An interception by Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace with just over a minute remaining. A safety on Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel that ultimately wasn’t ruled in the Rebels’ favor. A holding call that thwarted a scoring drive. A fourth-and-inch run that was snubbed out by the Aggies defense.

Any of the four plays going in the Rebels favor could have produced a more favorable outcome than the 30-27 come-from-behind victory for the Aggies in front a stunned crowd of 55,343 and a TV audience watching via ESPNU.

In a game that was mostly controlled by the Rebels (3-3 overall, 0-2 Southeastern Conference), Saturday’s setback, of all the losses this year, was the hardest to take.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was visibly pained by the loss for his team and coaching staff who worked so hard during the week getting ready for the fast-paced offense Texas A&M (4-1, 2-1) uses to score points. (October 8, 2012, Page 1B)
