Ronald Martinez

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and No. 9 Texas A&M will take on No. 11 Oklahoma in the most anticipated college game of the bowl season outside of the BCS Championship, in what is expected to be a high scoring 2012 Cotton Bowl.

Manziel passed for 3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns, adding 19 rushing touchdowns and 1,181 yards on the ground, as the Aggies offense paved the way for a 10-2 finish for the first season in the SEC for Texas A&M. The Aggies rebounded from a tough loss to No. 6 LSU with five straight wins to finish out the year, including a 29-24 victory over No. 1 Alabama.

The Sooners will be playing the team's final game with senior Landry Jones under center, with Oklahoma surviving in the final weeks of the season to earn a spot in the Cotton Bowl.
