COLLEGE STATION, Texas Happy New Year.

It's the after-effects of a Johnny Football acrobatic nail-biting come- from-behind win over Duke in Tuesday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl.

News 3 has a look back at the incredible victory with some fans watching Tuesday night inside the Corner Bar at Northgate in College Station.

Aggie football fans are celebrating a big comeback win beating the Duke Blue Devils 52 to 48.

Fans at the Corner Bar in Northgate were in a festive mood New Year's Eve, including A&M Senior T.J. Lynch.

"What do I think about winning the Chick Fil-A Bowl man, that was awesome. Great performance by Johnny and the defense killed it at the end and really stepped up. I'm pumped. Everyone is pumped in College Station. He, you know she's pumped," said Lynch.

"Gig 'Em Aggies! We just won!," said Texas A&M Senior Paige Thomas.

It was an outcome not looking likely the first half with the Aggies behind 38 to 17 at half time.

But then Johnny Manziel started working his magic.

"I couldn't believe it. Honestly I was a little upset after the first half but Johnny Manziel and his magic was unbelievable again," said Lynch.

Texas A&M Student Paige Thomas had lots to celebrate.

"I'm really excited to win the bowl game, but I just want to express how happy I am to be an Aggie," she said.

If Manziel and Wide Receiver Mike Evans decide to go pro this year, they left a comeback win for the history books.

"If this is Johnny Manziel's last game as an Aggie he really, you know he killed it for us. He put us on the map," said T.J. Lynch.

This was the first time Texas A&M and Duke have played each other in football.
