The 2012 season was the first for the Texas A&M Aggies in the Southeastern Conference. The team, led by freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel played exceptionally well, going 11-2, including 5-1 against their SEC West opponents. Manziel did his part in cementing his legacy in the sport by winning the Heisman Trophy, but things haven’t been so great since. He has had some issues in the offseason and was suspended for the first half of the 2013 opener against Rice.
Let’s look back on the 2012 season and ahead to what is still to come in 2013.
The Aggies went 4-2 a year ago in games against teams ranked in the top 25. They lost their season opener to Florida and a game against LSU (lost by eight points total) but played well against other opponents including Mississippi State (38-13), Oklahoma (41-13 in Cotton Bowl Classic) and they were the only team to defeat the BCS National Champion Alabama. It was Manziel who continuously led them back in games and became known as Johnny Football around the country.
