The encore to Johnny Football's Heisman Trophy-winning freshman season is nearing an end.

Johnny Manziel and No. 10 Texas A&M have a bye this week before wrapping up the regular-season with games at No. 18 LSU and ninth-ranked Missouri.

Manziel has put up eye-popping numbers similar to and in some cases better than he did a year ago, but most polls don't have him favored to join Archie Griffin as the second two-time Heisman winner. His biggest competition to repeat is Florida State's freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, who has led the Seminoles to a 9-0 start.

Manziel says he isn't worried about the Heisman race and is only concerned about helping the Aggies win their next two games.
