Texas A&M selling ‘Manziel grass’

Texas A&M fans can buy some of the same Kyle Field grass run
upon by Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the rest of the
Aggies.

Online sales began Monday on live grass from the football
stadium in College Station. A new playing surface is being grown
off-site and will be installed in time for the 2014 season.

A&M plans to harvest the current grass following the final
home Nov. 9 against Mississippi State. Buyers must pick up their
grass the next day.

Each harvested pallet of about 450 square feet of sod goes for
$400. A limited number of single squares of grass are $20 apiece.
Buyers will receive a certificate of authenticity.
