@JManziel2 good game brotha! Make some more noise this year— Nick Elder (@NickElder1) August 31, 2013
The redshirt sophomore finished the game with seven tackles. And yes, he was credited for a tackle on that third-down run for Manziel.
As for how the tackle has impacted his popularity, Elder is still trying to crack the 1,000 mark on Twitter followers. That's about 499,000 behind Manziel.
