NCAA '14 Simulation: Rice Owls vs. Texas A&M Aggies

We'll simulate the Aggies' matchup each week and see how close things end up to the actual results.

This was a complete simulation with no user control whatsoever during the gameplay. In an effort to maintain realism, QB #2 was benched for the first half of this game (although EA says QB #2 is just coincidentally like Manziel, depsite the game referencing his Heisman last season).

End of the 1st Quarter - Ags up 14-0

The Aggies jump out to an early 14-0 lead with Freshman Kenny Hill taking all of the snaps this quarter. The Aggies two scores were both touchdown passes from Hill to Junior WR Malcome Kennedy. The first touchdown was a 32 yard catch and run, while the second touchdown was a 5 yard completion in the end zone.

End of the 2nd Quarter - Ags up 28-7

The Aggies double their scoring effort in the second half while letting Rice get in the endzone once. The Aggies lead 28-7 at the half. Kenny Hill finished the half 10/17 for 137 yards and 3 touchdowns. He connected on a 37 yard touchdown pass to Trey Williams. As time ran out in the second half, Ben Malena broke off an 80 yard touchdown run.

End of the 3rd Quarter - Ags up 35-14

Johnny Manziel serves out his half game suspesion and is ready to come in and crack some skulls. He throws a 19 yard pass to Malcome Kennedy in the endzone. That would be the Ags only score of the quarter, while Rice tacks on a passing touchdown of their own.

Final Score - Ags win 49-21

The Aggies go to the ground to finish this game as Ben Malena puts touchdown runs of 2 yards and 6 yards on the board. Rice added a 23 yard catch and run touchdown to at leave College Station looking mildly respectable.
