BOWL HISTORY SECTION IX • TEXAS A&M BOWL HISTORY 1992 COTTON BOWL ( # 5) FLORIDA STATE 10, ( # 9) TEXAS A&M 2 WEDNESDAY, JAN. 1, 1992 • DALLAS, TEXAS COTTON BOWL • ATTENDANCE: 73,728 DALLAS—The Aggies drove through the Seminoles’ defense with surprising ease in the early going and appeared poised to take the lead on their first possession when Greg Hill sprinted 39 yards toward the endzone. But Hill fumbled the ball out of the endzone as he was hit at the two-yard line and the Seminoles were awarded possession on their own one-yard line. A&M’s Quentin Coryatt sacked FSU quarterback Casey Weldon for a safety on the next play, but that’s all the scoring the Aggies could muster. Two possessions later, A&M dropped a sure scoring pass in the endzone. In the second quarter, safety Chris Crooms returned an interception 42 yards for an apparent touchdown, but Crooms had stepped out of bounds at the 26-yard line. FSU’s potent offense could manage just 10 points and 280 yards against A&M’s No. 1-ranked defense, but the Aggies could gain just 180 yards against the Seminoles. Crooms intercepted Weldon twice and was named the game’s top defensive player.

The Irish carried the momentum into the third quarter and took command with a pair of touchdowns, the first on a 26-yard pass from Mirer to Jerome Bettis and the second on a 1-yard run by Bettis. A&M added a 41-yard field goal by Terry Venetoulias early in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 21-3, but another touchdown run by Bettis put the game out of reach and handed the Irish a big 28-3 victory. The Aggies gained just 165 yards of total offense and managed just 11 first downs, while Notre Dame compiled 439 yards of offense and 28 first downs. Sophomore linebacker Jessie Cox had a big game for the Aggies, posting 17 tackles.

The Aggies took a 14-7 halftime lead after a 15-yard pass from Corey Pullig to Detron Smith late in the second quarter. Notre Dame knotted the game, 14-14, early in the third period, but the Aggies came right back to regain the lead, 21-14, on a short plunge by Rodney Thomas. The Fighting Irish returned the favor three minutes later with a scort scoring run of their own to tie the game, 21-21. With less than four minutes to play, Notre Dame’s Michael Miller returned an Aggie punt 38 yards to the A&M 22-yard line, the longest punt return allowed by A&M all season. The A&M defense held firm, but Notre Dame managed a 31-yard field goal by Kevin Pendergast to end the scoring. With just :24 left, A&M narrowly missed a miracle comeback when, on fourth-and-17 from the Aggie 41, Corey Pullig completed a 14-yard pass to Tony Harrison, who attempted to lateral to trailing Leeland McElroy. However, the pitch sailed high and was recovered by Notre Dame, who took home an exciting 24-21 victory. The Aggies outgained the Irish in total offense, 341-311, as Pullig passed for 238 yards.

A&M’s Kyle Bryant was named the Offensive MVP, kicking five field goals to lead the Aggie attack. Linebacker Keith Mitchell was named the Defensive MVP for his constant harassment of the Michigan quarterback Brian Griese. A trio of true freshman running backs—Eric Bernard, D’Andre Hardeman and Sirr Parker—subbed for the injured Leeland McElroy and gained 137 yards and scored one TD. Future NFL first-round pick Tim Biakabutuka gained 94 for the Wolverines. With A&M holding a 19-13 lead and time running out, Aggie cornerback Andre Williams intercepted a pass to set up Bryant’s final field goal to give A&M a 22-13 lead with 23 second left to play. Michigan would complete a hail mary to narrow the score to the final, 22-20.

Slocum against UCLA head coach and former A&M assistant Bob Toledo as the Aggies were double-digit underdogs. The Aggies led 16-0 before UCLA could muster any points. Led by two Wrecking Crew scores, the Aggies controlled early. A&M junior linebacker Dat Nguyen was named the Defensive Most Valuable Player as he recorded 20 tackles and a bowl record 15 solo stops. UCLA took the momentum to the locker room at halftime with a late score to trail 16-7. The Bruins chipped away at the Aggies the entire second half, allowing only one score, a Chris Cole 43-yard reverse for a touchdown. The No. 5 ranked Bruins outlasted the Aggies by the final of 29-23. Dante Hall carried seven times for 93 yards and a touchdown. The Aggies honored former A&M standout Reggie Brown,who sustained a career-ending neck injury in December, by wearing his number under their jerseys.

And in the end, the boisterous, cocksure Buckeyes did indeed get their win. But it wasn’t by a big margin, and it certainly wasn’t easy. The underdog and under-appreciated Texas Aggies gave their Big Ten-champion counterparts far more than they bargained for in front of 76,503 fans at the Louisiana Superdome. In fact, for 53 minutes and 25 seconds of play, the Aggies did more than enough to make the Buckeye fans sweat out their New Year’s Eve hangovers. Unfortunately for A&M, it was that other 6:35 of play that gave OSU fans a reason to revel throughout all corners of the French Quarter. “We played a great team, and we played pretty well at times,” Texas A&M freshman fullback Ja’Mar Toombs said following the Aggies’ 24-14 loss. “They were ranked No. 1 for a long time, and there’s a reason for that. They’re very talented. But I think we proved we are, too. We just got too far behind.” Ohio State (11-1) used two impressive drives and a key blocked punt to score 21 points in a span of 6:35 in the first quarter. That proved to he enough for the Buckeyes to register a hard-fought win. But it wasn’t what OSU had envisioned in the days in weeks leading up to the Sugar Bowl. The Buckeyes, who spent nine weeks ranked No. 1 in the nation, wanted to destroy the Aggies (11-3) and stake their claim to the national title. That simply wasn’t the case, as Texas A&M stood toe-to-toe with Ohio State and frequently had OSU on its heels. A&M became only the second team this season to hold the Buckeyes to as few as 24 points (Michigan State also held OSU to that total in the Buckeyes’ lone loss). And the Aggies became the first team to hold the high-powered Ohio State offense scoreless in the second half. In other words, it was a struggle for the Buckeyes, not a stroll. If it wouldn’t have been for that little scoring outburst they had, it could have been a whole different ballgame,” A&M junior running back Dante Hall said. “But we never panicked, and there in the second half, I kind of thought we might be on the verge of another Kansas State-type comeback.” Even with a convincing 24-7 lead at the intermission, Ohio State coach John Cooper spent plenty of time in the locker room reminding his players about A&M’s heroic, lateseason comebacks. “At halftime, we were talking about the Kansas State game,” Cooper said of the Big 12 title game in which the Aggies overcame a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit to win in double overtime. “(The Aggies) were getting the second-half kickoff, and we knew what they did in the second half against Kansas State.” Despite the warning, the Buckeyes appeared to be on the verge of buckling several times in the second half. First, A&M quarterback Branndon Stewart hit Leroy Hodge on a 7-yard scoring pass to cut the lead to 24-14 with 5:24 left in the third quarter. Then, after stuffing OSU on its next series, A&M drove to as deep as the Ohio State 33, as the Superdome rocked and resembled - in appearance and volume level - Kyle Field with a roof on it. “We had them on their heels, and this place was going nuts,” A&M senior tight end Dan Campbell said. “That’s the frustrating thing to me. If we make it 24-21, I really would have liked to have seen (the Superdome) crowd. And I would have liked to have seen how (Ohio State) responded to it.” To the Aggies’ chagrin, the Buckeyes never had to deal with that kind of pressure late in the game. A&M’s late third-quarter drive into Buckeye territory was halted by a penalty and a sack. Then with the Aggies marching early in the fourth quarter. Stewart’s lateral pass to Toombs was recovered by OSU at the Aggies’ 48. That killed a promising A&M drive and effectively ended the Aggies’ comeback momentum. Ohio State simply held on the rest of the way to send the Aggies to their fifthstraight New Years Day bowl loss. “(Ohio State) knew they had been in a war,” Campbell said. “That much, I know for sure.” The Buckeyes should have sensed that from the opening kickoff. A&M forced OSU to go three-and-out on its first offensive possession of the game, and then A&M went on an impressive touchdown march. A&M drove 59 yards in six plays, with Hall capping the drive with a 9-yard scoring run to give the Aggies an early 7-0 lead. Then on OSU’s next possession, the Buckeyes faced a third-and-l5 at their own 24. But OSU quarterback Joe Germaine completed a 28-yard pass to a wide-open Dee Miller to give the Buckeyes a big first down. Three plays later, Germaine hit Reggie Germany on an 18-yard scoring pass, and OSU’s touchdown barrage had officially begun. BOWL HISTORY
