ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M had an emphatic answer for everybody who wondered how Texas A&M would do in the SEC.

Led by their Heisman Trophy-winning freshman quarterback, the 10th-ranked Aggies won 11 games, including an upset of then-No. 1 Alabama, and never trailed while winning the last six. They capped their SEC debut season with a 41-13 Cotton Bowl victory over former Big 12 rival Oklahoma.

Manziel accounted for four touchdowns and set a Cotton Bowl record with 516 total yards. That included an FBS bowl record for quarterbacks with 229 yards rushing on 17 carries.

The only losses by the Aggies were the season opener to Florida and against LSU, both current top 10 teams.
