11:32 pm
>> referee: delay of game. number 12 of offense. five-yard penalty. second down. >> charles: i know that goes against landry jones, because he is the quarterback. but that may not be all him. not sure what is happening with the plays coming in. there is confusion about personnel. is there a delay? right now this oklahoma team is struggling in all aspects. trying to get something done down the stretch. >> gus: second and 28. jones, the throw. over the middle. and he has his man. at the 22-yard line. kenny stills. stopped by dustin harris after 15-yard gain.
11:33 pm

11:34 pm
harris back pedaling. and harris gobbleed up quickly at the 25-yard line. january 1, 1988, last time a&m in the cotton bowl against notre dame. heisman trophy winner tim brown put the irish ahead, after notre dame made the score 10-3. a&m, alex morris made a leaping interception in the corner of the end zone. six plays later, running back darren lewis ended the drive. a&m won the game 35-10. >> charles: cotton bowl all-time wins, a&m with four. texas way out ahead. notre dame with five. bucky richardson, quarterback of that team. >> gus: here is manziel breaking free. manziel, at midfield. and pushed out of bounds. johnny manziel, gain of 31.
11:35 pm
>> charles: i met bucky richardson in new york city this year, national football foundation dinner, gus. and said, "hey, you were a running quarterback." he said, "don't even try to say that when johnny manziel is playing that position. what i did wasn't anything close to what this man does." >> gus: what a performance by the heisman trophy winner. here is a handoff. williams. [ whistle ] you have to give so much credit to kevin sumlin, 48 years old. in his first season at texas a&m. it looks like they are on their way to their 11th win. bear bryant coach of the year finalist for the second time in four seasons. named s.e.c. coach of the year by a.p. came from houston, where he was 35-17 withhree bowl berths in four seasons from 2008 to 2011.
11:36 pm
and we called a number of a&m games last year. this is a totally different team. they are more physical. their mentality, c.d., certainly changed. >> charles: they don't get the lead and quit attacking. we saw that a lot last year. tried to hold on to leads. that is tough to do in the big 12. you just mentioned kevin sumlin. five years as a head coach, partner. three times, conference coach of the year. he is carving out quite a resume. he took over in difficult circumstances. this team liked mike sherman. it wasn't their idea that mike sherman should be gone. so kevin sumlin and his staff had to win over these guys. >> gus: told a great story in our meeting with him. he said the guys weren't responding in spring ball. they were in a meeting, and he turned off the tape. he said hey, guys, i'm here. i'm here for you. we're going to play a little
11:37 pm
different but i need you to understand that things can change. and that you have to roll with the punches. the kids responded. >> charles: seminole meeting right there. to be able to lay it out in proper terms. he didn't tell them that they shouldn't have liked the priest coach. that ipriest -- previous coach. that's fine. we get that. heck of a coach, mike sherman. heck of a man. this is the situation we have. how are we going to make the best of it? these kids would do anything for not just kevin sumlin but the entire staff. he pushed spring practice back weeks to get to know the kids better and get the strength and conditioning intact. put that in play and helped the team out. it's all paid dividends. >> gus: played a hunch. he said i think i'm going to go with a redshirt freshman at q.b. he should have bought a lottery ticket that day.
11:38 pm
thank you, sir. thank you, ma'am. you're welcome. gate 40, ma'am ? straight over that way. thank you. you're welcome. would you like the window ? no, i'm fine. thank you, sir. there you go, sir. thank you, sir. have a great trip home. oh, thank you very much, ma'am. would you like some help ? yes. let me get that. have a nice night. thank you, ma'am. thank you, sir. no, thank you. >> gus: manziel. on the sideline. got the coach's visor on with 2:23 to a&m punting it away. saunders back deep. he has a fair catch at the ten. take a look at the reese's perfect play from tonight.
11:39 pm
>> charles: and of course; it's going to center around manbe manziel. it has to. it started early. johnny manziel from the pocket. scramble. tightropes his way with the gallop in to the end zone to get a&m off and running this evening. >> gus: heisman trophy has taken manziel by storm. talking to the texas a&m public relations department. as they hand it off. clay. a lot of running room. talking to the public relations department at texas a&m. they say now for johnny, it's almost like he has taken on rolling stones/beatles practice. every time he practices, there are swarms of people just coming to watch him and wanting to be around him. >> charles: at the lunchen,
11:40 pm
do you remember what happened when he came up on the stage? he and landry jones were going to throw a football out. something that gabe ikard, the center for oklahoma, and he saw landry jones to get out of the way to get a clear shot for a picture of johnny manziel on the stage. nothing, personal, bro. that guy won the heisman. >> gus: but you kind of knew, or his family knew that very early on in his develo development that he was going to be a special athlete. he played multiple sports growing up. >> charles: they say that his third best sport is football. baseball and golf are his best sports. how about that? >> gus: second down and one. we know him now as "johnny
11:41 pm
football," but back then, "little johnny." as a baseball, had a ball if his hand. mom said his name was jonathan until 11 or 12 but he was called "johnny" and she lost the battle. see the yankees outif it there? that's why he wears number 2. derek jeter. he had 15 last year as redshirt freshman. he had an opportunity to go to number 2 and seized it. all due to baseball. >> gus: 42 seconds remai remaining. landry jones. and sumlin gets the gam gatorade shower. i think he has won them over, charles. >> charles: you think? >> gus: took a minute. bob stoops, disappointing cotton bowl. but he has been a part of
11:42 pm
eight championships as the head coach at o.u. they will bounce back. and they are two very good friends. bob stoops gave kevin sumlin a great opportunity at o.u. where they spent five years together. left oklahoma, went to houston and now at a&m and picks up his 11th win of the season. a&m defeats oklahoma 41-13. go to l.a. and erin andrews. >> erin: thank you. impressive victory for a&m and johnny manziel. we're all saying, "he did what tonight?" coming up we head to arlington for trophy preppation. and they'll say "wow" more and break down johnny football's historic performance, next on the at&t cotton bowl post game. wow!

one with head coach mike shanahan as the skins prepare for the battle with seattle. >> plus a call for action after more than 100 firefighters called out sick on new year's eve. but we begin tonight with judgment day for a former fbi agent convicted of hitting and killing a teenager in a drunk driving crash. thanks for staying up with us. i'm shawn yancy. >> i'm brian bolter. >> 18 months is how long the offender will stay in prison. >> adrian johnson was convicted by a jury of that deadly crash a few months ago. the parents thought he'd be going to jail for a long time. turns out johnson got one month for every year lawrence garner jr. was alive. j.r. garner was killed in february of 2011 in a car crash.
12:00 am
it happened in brandywine. it took only two hours for a jury to find adrian johnson guilty of homicide by a motor vehicle while intoxicated. the former fbi agent who once protected the attorney general faced up to 10 years in prison, but received much less than that as jr's family watched in court friday. >> it wasn't fair. 18 months, that's crazy. >> being a law enforcement officer i think he should have gotten more time. >> these are the pictures of jr his parents have around the home. they show the good times, but it's an autopsy photo of him that his mother sees most often. she carries it around with her to remind her of what adrian johnson took away from her that night. >> truly i look at this all the time. this is how he left my son and he shows no remorse. >> johnson's attorney told us in october he would appeal the guilty verdict. >> we thought that the vehicle
12:01 am
that he struck pulled out of a blind intersection in the middle of the night. the evidence was there was about two seconds to react to that unforeseen development and it was our position that a stone sober driver would have run into that vehicle. >> still jr's parents were expecting some kind of an apology from johnson in court but once again they were disappointed. >> in the courtroom he had no remorse. mr. johnson had no remorse. he never said i was sorry. he focused on himself. >> prosecutors were asking that johnson serve over 10 years in prison. he was taken into custody but once again his attorney is appealing the conviction. . >> matt ackland tonight. t. a news alert from d.c. this evening. the man convicted of brutally assaulting an elderly woman in 2005 could be getting out of prison. james dorsey's conviction was overturned by the d.c. court of appeals. he admitted to beating and robbing the 83-year-old t-shirt vendor known as grandma to
12:02 am
those who knew her who lived in her apartment in foggy bottom. a spokesman for the u.s. attorney tells us he is still in custody for now and they have not decided whether to retry the case. first on fox 5 there is a call for immediate action in the d.c. fire department after more than 100 firefighters called out sick new year's eve. that left nearly a dozen ambulances unstaffed and supervisors scrambling for help. one d.c. council member is asking the mayor and the fire chief to do something now even if it means taking disciplinary action. fox 5's maureen umeh has the story. >> our firefighters are paid to do a job and there's just no acceptable excuse of how this happens. >> reporter: d.c. council member tommy wells is angry, upset that the safety of district residents was put in jeopardy new year's eve when more than 100 firefighters called in sick. wells who has oversight for judiciary and public safety in the district says he met with the deputy mayor, fire chief and the head of the
12:03 am
firefighters union friday to try to get to the bottom of what happened. >> we did not have an unusual case of the flu going only through the fire department. this was a choice made by our employees and it was definitely not sanctioned by the union. i've been assured of that by the head of the union. this is something the firefighters chose to do on their own and it's absolutely unacceptable. >> reporter: 11 ambulances went unstaffed forcing supervisors to ask for help from prince george's county. the gap created chaos. a 71-year-old man at this house on 44th place southeast waited 40 minutes for an ambulance. the air force veteran later died of a heart attack. on lang place northeast a stabbing victim was transported to the hospital in a fire truck. >> our residents pay for city services. we have a firefighting department along with the ambulance services and i expect to be fully staffed. >> reporter: while union officials deny it was a coordinated sickout they say the trouble could have been avoided if the department had staffed up as it did in recent
12:04 am
years. cost cutting measures and low morale have been issues between the firefighters union and fire chief, but council member wells says a sickout isn't the way to make a point. he says action including perhaps disciplinary measures must be taken now to send a clear message. >> i expect this will not happen again and if it does, i know that we're in contract negotiations around the services for our employees. i understand also that if you want to work for d.c. government, especially in emergency services, you have to show the kind of commitment that we expect as an employer, as a city and as residents of this great city. >> reporter: maureen umeh, fox 5 news. now a news alert from fairfax county, police believe the serial fondler may have struck again. the latest assault happened last night in the 4400 block of briarwood court. police believe a man grabbed a female jogger. after the woman yesterday the man took off.
12:05 am
this would be the 15th assault in fairfax county. if you recognize this man, call police. thousands gathered today to remember a virginia police officer killed in the line of duty. prince william county motorcycle officer chris yung died in an accident new year's eve. today his family and friends gathered in woodbridge to honor his sacrifice. fox 5's john henrehan reports. >> reporter: services today to remember a fallen motorcycle officer. 35-year-old chris yung was responding to a call on new year's eve in bristow when his bike collided with a minivan. a firing party on a nearby hill honored the former marine and a lone bugler sounded taps. reporters were asked to stay outside the funeral, but an audio feed supplied the many testimonies of the character of this policeman. >> he wanted people to be safe. a few years ago we received a message of thanks from a woman
12:06 am
who had been in distress with her disabled vehicle off a very busy road. off duty chris stopped to help the woman. not only that, but the road was so busy that he had to go past the vehicle, turn around and return to provide her and her daughter assistance. >> reporter: chris yung's brother dale is also a police officer with prince william county. dale yung offered an emotional tribute to his brother's always sunny disposition. >> as you guys all know, he had that smile, that smile that could light up any room, brighten any day. you know, if you were having a bad day, you could count on chris to put a smile on your face. >> reporter: the assembled crowd heard a final unanswered radio call over the loud speakers. the dispatcher's voice then declared officer chris yung to be cleared from further duties. his widow and three young children were escorted to a police cruiser and a long procession which included a
12:07 am
riderless motorcycle then wound its way through prince william county. john henrehan, fox 5 news. >> officer yung will be buried tomorrow in a private ceremony in charlottesville. a retired prince george's county firefighter and homeowner's dog are being haled heroes for saving a woman's life. smoke coming from this house in bowie on pond meadow lane caught the attention of lieutenant billy mills. the lieutenant rushed to the house where a dog directed him to the backdoor. inside he found a disabled woman and pulled her to safety. she was taken to the hospital to be treated. the fire destroyed her home no, word on the cause. we are getting closer and closer to kickoff, sunday's battle with seattle the first redskins playoff game in the mike shanahan era. sports director scott smith went one on one with the head coach today. what did he have to say? >> when the team was 3-6 you heard talk of him on the hot seat. now they're 10-6 and there's
12:08 am
talk of a contract extension. we covered quite a few topics today in our sitdown including his relationship with owner dan snyder. dan snyder had kind of a reputation of being a hands on owner. not necessarily the case since you arrived. how would you describe that relationship with him? >> it's been great. he's allowed me to do what we needed to do to make some tough decisions with players that have been here and cuts in salaries and get younger, move in the right direction, got to count on a lot of young guys to kind of change the atmosphere of the organization which we felt like we had to do, make some tough decisions on some veteran players that weren't buying in, but the guys in did buy in we wanted to keep here because we've got some great character of guys who have been here in the past. >> reporter: has dan given you any indication he would like to extend you? >> there's rumors and speculation. there's an article and i just laugh. i don't even know how they get
12:09 am
out there because i haven't had any concentration. nobody would have concentration at this time of year anyhow because your consequence operation level is on your job. >> reporter: you bring this city its first nfc east title in 13 years. how does it feel in your perspective to give that to such a hungry fan base? >> i'll be honest with you. to come in here and find out how the washington fan is, i really didn't know and then you come in. you know they know their football and near really gracious saying hey, coach, this is -- they're really area saying hey, coach, this is not going to happen overnight. we believe in you. be patient, do it the right way and i was really surprised how many people said that consistently trying to tell me not to get down. when you're used to winning and want to win, it's really tough when you're not representing your fans the way you'd like to, but they hung in there and they were always positive and so i'm very happy we got to the first stage anyhow.
12:10 am
>> certainly has the team heading in the right direction and at the right time, more from my conversation with the head coach sunday at 3:30 during our special pregame show. this is the game day lineup fox. 3:30 we have kickoff coverage live from fedex field, the fox network pregame at 4:00 and a 4:30 kickoff between the seahawks and redskins followed up with a special fox 5 postgame show. you want motivation? the redskins are the only home team playing this weekend picked as the underdog. we'll try to prove those oddsmakers wrong on sunday. you can see the fedex crew at work in this video from sky fox earlier today getting the field ready for the game. what kind of weather will greet fans going to the stadium? gary mcgrady is here now with the game day forecast. >> it's going to be a pretty good day out there on sunday. we may have some clouds early, but as we progress through the day i think we're in really good shape. of course, it's a 4:30 kickoff at fedex field. so i think by 4:30 temperatures
12:11 am
should actually be up into the lower 40s. we'll have good amounts of sunshine, too. there's going to be a few clouds, definitely on the cool side and it's going to be dry. that's the good point, too. we start off with kickoff in the lower 40s and temperatures will be dropping down into the upper 30s or so by the 4th quarter. so it looks like all is good with forecasts for this game. let me show you briefly out there now temperatures dropped to 37 in town, some places manassas, culpeper already down to the middle 20s. once the wind dies down temperatures will drop for about everybody. so we're definitely talking a real cold overnight tonight. weekend forecast is coming up and beyond as well. to show us your redskin spirit upload your pics and videos on our web page. look for the link under the sports tab. you can also e-mail us, another big story tonight, a u.s. senator admits to drunk driving in alexandria, virginia.
