Johnny Manziel threw for 426 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score in less than three quarters to give No. 7 Texas A&M to a 65-28 win over Sam Houston State on Saturday night. The Heisman Trophy-winner played about a quarter more than he did last week when he sat out the first half serving a suspension for what the school called an "inadvertent" violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs. Texas A&M's suspension-depleted defense was burned for several big plays by the Bearkats (1-1), the FCS runner-up the last two seasons, in the final tuneup before next week's rematch with top-ranked Alabama.

Freshman Kenny Hill added 74 yards passing to give A&M a school-record 500 ya...

Texas A&M Head Coach Kevin Sumlin had it 100 percent right when he told Johnny Manziel that he better get used to the chirping.

I can see where all the hate would get to anyone...
