PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel
TEAMS:
The No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies (3-1) face their first road test of the season on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. EST on ESPN2 against the Arkansas Razorbacks (3-1), who are coming off a hard-fought 28-24 loss on the road against Rutgers. Arkansas’ new coach Bret Bielema has tried to mold the Hogs into the image of his Wisconsin program. He won at Wisconsin with an overpowering running game and a stingy defense.  Statistically, Arkansas appears to be exactly that. The Razorbacks are averaging 246 yards rushing per game on offense and 397.5 total yards per game. On defense Arkansas is allowing only 93 yards rushing on three yards per attempts and 289.8 total yards per game. Obviously the numbers are skewed because of the team’s relatively weak non-conference schedule.  Rutgers struggled to run the ball, but the Scarlet Knights managed to pass for 346 yards in their win against the Razorbacks. Let’s take a look at what Arkansas has to offer on offense and defense. Photo Via stadium.dallascowboys...

A&M booster talks Johnny Manziel, behind the scenes of program

When we broke the news that Johnny Manziel had been booted from the Manning Passing Academy in July, we faced a lot of backlash from Texas A&M fans.

Texas A&M Football: Who is Mike Evans?

When Texas A&M played Alabama in their third game of the season quarterback Johnny Manziel connected beautifully with wide receiver Mike Evans. Who was this 6-foot-5 red-shirt sophomore that gave the Crimson Tide a run for their money? Evans is a play maker who is quick on his feet despite his size. With that being said, let’s take a look at his past year at Texas A&M:...

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Says He’s Betting $300,000 on Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M This Weekend

The idea that Floyd Mayweather Jr. would bet $5.9 million on an NBA playoff game is ridiculous, the boxer says. The idea that he would drop 300 grand on a Texas A&M game, however, is not. Mayweather was hyping the Aggies — or, more specifically, Johnny Manziel — on Wednesday when he went on Howard Stern‘s radio show. While Mayweather denied ever betting $5.9 million on...
