COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Everything went right for No. 6 Texas A&M in last year’s upset of top-ranked Alabama to help launch Johnny Manziel’s run to the Heisman Trophy.

As the Aggies prepare for the rematch they insist it’s just another game, saying it so much it almost seems as if they are trying to convince themselves.

But no matter how much they repeat the sentiment that’s being fed to them by coach Kevin Sumlin and the rest of the staff, everyone knows that it isn’t just another game. It’s arguably the biggest game in the program’s history.

As much as Sumlin tries to downplay the hype surrounding this week, even his 9- and 11-year-old sons remind him of it. He says: “they recognize how big things are.”
