Texas A&M scored early Saturday night and never surrendered their lead against No. 15 Oklahoma State, beating the Cowboys 36-20 in front of a stunned OSU homecoming crowd in Stillwater, OK.
Aggie quarterback Reggie McNeal cruised past OSU's defense, throwing two touchdown passes and running for two TDs in the game. McNeal, the only NCAA quarterback averaging at least 70 yards rushing and 200 yards passing, finished the night 19-of-25 for 288 yards and ran for 98 yards.
Texas A&M (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half and carried the momentum into the second half. Oklahoma State's (5-1, 2-1), Vernand Morency, fumbled twice on consecutive possessions in the first half, and the opportunistic Aggies turned both mistakes into scores. Morency had 111 yards on 28 carries for Oklahoma State.
Arguably the most electric moment of the game occurred on the final play of the first half, when McNeal fired a "hail Mary" pass towards the endzone. Terrence Murphy tipped the ball to DeQawn Mobley, who grabbed the ball while falling in for the score.
With their victory over OSU, Texas A&M is tied with Oklahoma a the top of the Big 12 South. Next Saturday the Aggies host Colorado (4-2, 1-2 Big 12) in a non-televised conference match-up. The Buffaloes are coming off of a 19-14 victory over Iowa State.
