--- Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel received Freshman
of the Week honors from the Southeastern Conference for the fifth time
this season on Monday.
Manziel, from Kerrville Tivy High School, led the Aggies to a historic scoring output in a 63-21 road victory over Auburn last Saturday. It was the most points ever scored by the Aggies on a conference opponent's home field, and it was
the most points scored against Auburn since 1917. With the win, the Aggies became bowl-eligible for the fourth straight season.
In just over two quarters of action against Auburn, Manziel accounted for 350 total yards and five touchdowns. He passed for 260 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 90 yards and three scores against the Tigers. He led the Aggies on eight drives before leaving the game, which produced seven touchdowns and a field goal try.
