Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel will have one final chance to make his case for becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy.
The star quarterback could bolster those hopes if he can break the SEC record for total offense - currently held by a recent Heisman winner - and help snap the ninth-ranked Aggies' losing streak to fellow conference newcomer Missouri on Saturday night.
