Coming into the game, the question for the fans was would the Aggies be able to contend without Johnny Manziel. After the game it was clear that the Aggies would be more than able to carry on. Kenny Hill broke Manziel's record for most passing yards in one game by throwing for 511 yards and 3 touchdowns. Tra Carson would average a little more than 4 yards a carry (4.3), carrying the ball 7 times for 30 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Aggies would go on to score on their first 9 possessions. It all led up to the Aggies compiling 680 yards of total offense over 37:28 minutes of time. The difference in the game was determined mostly by 3rd and 4th down efficiency. The Aggies would convert 12/19 attempts on 3rd down while going 2/2 on 4th downs, 67%. The Gamecocks went only 2-9 on 3rd down and 0/1 on fourth down, a 20% conversion rate.
