PSU-A&M: First shots fired at the Alamo Bowl

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- Texas A&M's Kyle Field has been called the loudest football stadium in the nation by some.

The Aggies have just scored to take a 7-0 lead, and with seemingly 90% of the sellout crowd wearing maroon and making strange whooping noises, the Alamodome is really rocking and rolling, too. And unlike Kyle Field, there's a roof to keep the sound in.

The Aggies started the game flinging the ball around like they did in their last game against Texas. A&M's first three plays were passes, but they gained only nine yards.

Penn State took possession after a great punt and put together a pretty solid drive. The Nits moved the ball 60 yards in 12 plays, including a 4th-and-1 conversion, but the drive ended with a missed 47-yard FG attempt.

A&M seized that momentum and drove the length of the field. The key plays were a 3rd-down 18-yard scramble by Stephen McGee and a 24-yard quick-hitter pass and run to big, fast TE Martellus Bennett. 5-plays later, Michael Goodson took an option pitch from McGee and beat everyone to the corner for a 1-yard TD run.
