Northwestern Vs. Texas A&M Score Update: Aggies Hold On Late For 33-22 Victory

It should come as no surprise that the Meineke Car Care Bowl wasn't decided until the final minutes. It also shouldn't be a surprise that when the game was over, Northwestern again found itself on the losing end of a bowl game. With its 33-22 loss to Texas A&M, it has now been 63 years since the Wildcats have won a bowl game, but as they do seemingly every year, the Wildcats made the game exciting.

After reeling off 27 straight points, and taking a 30-7 lead into the fourth quarter, it appeared that Texas A&M was on its way to a comfortable victory. However, Northwestern did its best to make sure that the Aggies weren't going to coast to a win, as the Wildcats scored 15 straight to narrow it to a one possession game. With the defense needing just one stop to give the offense a chance to tie the game, the Aggies drained nearly five minutes off the clock and drove down the field to clinch the game with a 31-yard field goal from Randy Bullock.

In his final game at Northwestern, Dan Persa finished off his tremendous career with an efficient performance. The senior QB completed 25/36 for 213 yards. His primary target throughout the game was Demetrius Fields, who led the Wildcats with seven catches for 73 yards in the loss.

The Aggies were led by the receiving combo of Jeff Fuller and Ryan Swope. Fuller reeled in seven catches for 119 yards and a TD, while Swope added eight catches for 105 yards in the win.
