Texas A&M is going to score a lot tonight. This is the offense that waltzed into Alabama and dropped 20 points on the Crimson Tide in the opening 15 minutes. The Sooners won't stop Johnny Manziel. Maybe, though, they can outscore him. It falls to Landry Jones and his four wide receivers to do so. The Aggies rank 79th against the pass, so the opportunity appears to be there. If OU keeps pass-rusher Damontre Moore in check and picks up A&M's blitzes, keeping Jones comfortable and allowing him to find those wideouts, this becomes one whale of a fun game.
