Early MVP candidate: A&M's Coryell Judie

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Halfway through the opening quarter, Coryell Judie leads in a straw poll of media for MVP of the Cotton Bowl Classic.

Not only did he have the second-longest kickoff return in Cotton Bowl history at 69 yards that set up Texas A&M's scoring drive, but he intercepted a pass at the 5-yard line to prevent LSU from putting points on the board.

The Aggies are driving again, leading 7-0.
