Bragging Rights. I can haz them please.

Snap. Hold. Kick.

Justin Tucker has balls the size of Texas.

Case McCoy, battered and bruised from head to toe, led his team right down the field with 1:30 left to set up the winning field goal.

A&M started strong but lived up to their 2011 formula for losing games. That may be too generalized a statement because unlike other in other losses, they had not faced as tenacious a defense as Texas offered tonight.

The #6 offense in the nation scoring at a 40.9 point clip per game and earning well in excess of 500 yards were smothered for the better part of three quarters as they finished with only 328 yards as the Texas defense turned in arguably one of the best performances I've ever seen.

And as uncanny as it sounds, almost the entire game was played on the Texas end of the field save for the turnovers and punt return.

Texas finally scores a rushing touchdown in about 10-12 quarters of football.

Congratulations to Texas and also to A&M. They gave us a Thanksgiving to remember.

Of course this is your celebration thread.

Hook 'em Horns, and it's good-bye to A&M!
