2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl: Texas A&M DB Toney Hurd Jr. pick-six puts Aggies ahead (GIF)

Nov 9, 2013; College Station, TX, USA; Texas A

All night in Atlanta in the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Texas A&M Aggies and the Duke Blue Devils have been making plays all over the field against one another.

In the first half, it was mainly Duke that was shocking everyone by doing the most damage to their SEC opponent. However in the second half, A&M came out and was a completely different team–more like the one that we were all used to seeing.

They fought their way back to come within 48-45 of the Blue Devils, and were certainly threatening Duke’s chances of their first bowl win since the 1960s.

Then, Duke QB Anthony Boone made one of his few mistakes on the night and it was a costly one.

Boone dropped back to pass and instead of finding a wide receiver, he found Aggies defensive back Toney Hurd Jr. instead, who then returned the interception for the touchdown, giving the Aggies the lead late in the fourth quarter:

That interception right there would actually end up sealing the deal for A&M, thus completing the epic comeback on this night and possibly sending Johnny Manziel off to the NFL a winner.
