A&M Raises Record $740 Million

COLLEGE STATION, (September 16, 2013)--The resurgence of its football program helped Texas A&M raise a record $740 million in donations during the past year.

The total exceeds the university's previous high mark by nearly 70 percent and dwarfs the more than $400 million raised by rival University of Texas during the same period.

Texas A&M Foundation president Ed Davis says the campus is enjoying more energy thanks in part to the Aggies' return as a college football power.

Quarterback Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy last year while leading Texas A&M to its best season in more than a decade.

Davis says a thriving Texas energy sector has also boosted donors' fortunes.
