The Mississippi State Bulldogs are trying to keep pace with Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies in Week 11, so they dug deep and pulled out some trickery in order to pull within two scores of the Aggies early in the fourth quarter.

Wide receiver Jameon Lewis came around for the reverse and found fellow wide receiver Joe Morrow wide open for a 31-yard pass that brought the score to 37-27.

When you are a big underdog looking to stay in the game, it is crucial to pull out all the tricks and this one was successful.

These are usually the plays that swing momentum in your favor, but it did not work that way for the Bulldogs.

On the following kick-off, Texas A&M took the kick return back for a touchdown, but there was an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that called the play back. However, the Aggies were still able to punch it in to get the lead back to 17-points.

The next drive, Texas A&M was able to grab an interception off of Dak Prescott, as Johnny Manziel led his troops down the field for another score as Texas A&M advanced their lead to 51-27.
