Texas A&M quarterback Stephen McGee might have been a human bruise for a couple of days after beating Nebraska, but he didn't seem to mind too much.

McGee rushed a staggering 35 times -- a school record for quarterbacks -- for 167 yards to spark the Aggies' gritty 36-14 victory. He was the spark in the Aggies' zone-read option offense as A&M erupted for a season-best 359 rushing yards.

"I felt pretty bad at the end of the game. On Sunday, I felt sore. And yesterday, I felt really sore," said McGee, who was the last A&M player to leave the locker room after receiving an IV solution. "But if it means we win, I'll run it 40 times."
