Johnny Manziel was Johnny Manziel, yet again.

And as usual, he came to play at just the right time.

Making those moves that makes his coach get grey hairs.

He did threw for 346 yards and ran for two touchdowns.

Despite all of that, it all came down to the foot of kicker Josh Lambo who’se 33-yard FG with 4 seconds left on the clock, gave Texas A&M a victory in front of a packed house at the Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at OXFORD, Miss.

A&M trailed 38-31 midway through the fourth quarter but Manziel put together a game-tying TD drive with just over 3 minutes left.
After A&M’s defense held, he did it again. He also had runs of 12 and 13 yards on the drive.

Included in there somewhere was the suspense.

A collision between Manziel (who clearly likes to run) and Ole Miss linebacker Serderius Bryant. Bryant had the entire stadium silenced as the stretcher was called for by Ole Miss staff. Bryant was knocked out cold when it looked like he struck Manziel’s right hip with his helmet and somehow got the worst of it. Manziel was shaken too, but shook it off in minutes.

It wasn’t long before Manziel was running again, with a nimble, shifty 24-yard dash that allowed the Aggies to convert on a 3rd and 14. But even with Manziel’s big plays, Texas A&M’s offense never clicked at its usual pace.

The Aggies got an 18-yard touchdown run by Williams late in the first quarter and led 14-10 at halftime. Ole Miss scored its lone touchdown of the first half on a 70-yard pass from Wallace to a wide-open Vince Sanders, who ran untouched to the end zone.
