Johnny Manziel threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 100 yards and two more scores in a bit more than a half as No. 8 Texas A&M beat Sam Houston State 47-28 Saturday. The redshirt freshman threw an 89-yard touchdown pass to Uzoma Nwachukwu on A&M's first offensive play of the second half. The dual-threat quarterback then attempted the extra point, but it sailed wide right, ending the Heisman hopeful's day with A&M (9-2) leading 40-0. He broke the NCAA freshman quarterback rushing record of 1,029 set by Missouri's Brad Smith in 2002, and the freshman record for total offense of 3,827 set in 2000 by Jared Lorenzen on A&M's first drive. He also became the fifth player and first freshman in FBS history to pass for at least 3,000 yards with at least 1,000 yards rushing in a season. His 4,161 yards are a school record for total offense in a season.

Aggies return to Kyle Field to face Sam Houston

If Texas A&M needs a reason to illustrate why it can't take Sam Houston State lightly, the Aggies only need to look back to earlier this season. The scrappy Bearkats, last year's Championship Subdivision runner-up, led Baylor 20-10 at halftime before the Bears rallied for a 48-23 win. ''They're not going to be awestruck or anything when they come in here...

IU-Sam Houston State Quick Recap and Postgame Show

The Indiana Hoosiers looked every bit like the #1 team in America on Thursday night. No, the competition was not great. And no, Indiana was never really challenged from the moment the ball was tipped until the final second ticked off the clock. But the Hoosiers played with an energy, a focus, and an intensity level that we hadn’t yet seen through two games. And it just might have...

Tom Crean uses 5-second rule after dropping gum on floor

Indiana’s head coach Tom Crean isn’t imune to blunderings. Crean appeared on SportCenters Not Top 10 during Thursday night’s game against Sam Houston State. It appears that Crean is yelling and trying to put in a piece of gum at the same time. Looks like he can’t walk, yell and chew gum at the same time.The gum I dropped tonight was a fresh piece of Dentyne Ice. No 5 second...

The Minute After: Sam Houston State

Thoughts on a 99-45 win over the Bearkats: I. Indiana breezed through their first two regular season contests, but tonight was just another level. Unlike the first two wins that started a little slow, Indiana was all gas, no brakes from the start here and this thing reached blowout territory before the halftime buzzer even sounded. It was, to quote the great offensive cliché, a...

Johnny "Football" Manziel Attempts Extra Point (Video)

With losses to the two top teams yesterday in college football Texas A&M quarterback Johnny "Football" Manziel finds himself in the thick of the Heisman Trophy race.  Maybe he heard that during the game because he tried to pad his stats with a PAT attempt.  The kick wasn't even close, and it wasn't because the kicker was hurt because he returned later in the...
