During last season’s Alabama game, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel made a ridiculous fumble-catch-for-touchdown play that would ultimately be the signature of his Heisman campaign.
In the first half of this year’s game against the Tide, Manziel made a similar statement.
With the Aggies facing third down and eight, Manziel took the snap, rolled left and was under immediate pressure by the Alabama defense. But in true Manziel fashion, he shimmied and he shook and he shed Alabama defenders to throw a 12-yard pass to Edward Pope, who pulled down the Manziel toss-up.
It was the most Johnny Manziel play ever.
However, the excitement over Manziel was short-lived as he capped the potential scoring drive with a interception in the end zone. Alabama would score on its next possession to take a 21-14 lead.
