COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns to lead the maroon team over the white team 43-23 in Texas A&M's spring game on Saturday.
Manziel looked sharp, completing 24 of 30 passes, with a long throw of 60 yards. He sat down after one series in the second half.
The Aggies are coming off an 11-2 record in their first season in the SEC after moving from the Big 12. Manziel led the Aggies to a win at national champion Alabama, and became the first freshman to win the award and A&M's first Heisman winner since 1957.
Excitement over the Aggies is high after last year's big season, with the game, which was televised on ESPN, drawing a spring record 45,212 fans.
