Johnny Manziel threw for 346 yards, ran for two touchdowns and No. 9 Texas A&M rallied to beat Mississippi 41-38 on Saturday night.
Texas A&M’s Josh Lambo made a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give the Aggies (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) the win. They trailed 38-31 midway through the fourth quarter, but Manziel engineered a 75-yard drive, ending with his 6-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 38 with 3:07 left.
Ole Miss (3-3, 1-3) was down 21-10 in the third quarter, but rallied thanks to two unlikely touchdown passes by backup quarterback Barry Brunetti.
Johnny Football made his usual array of spectacular plays, but also a few costly mistakes, including an interception in the end zone during the third quarter and a fumble early in the fourth. In the end, he was victorious.
Ole Miss’ Bo Wallace threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns.
