Manziel leads No. 14 A&M over Vanderbilt 56-24

Johnny Manziel looked every bit the reigning Heisman winner in Texas A&M's 56-24 win over Vanderbilt.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Johnny Manziel threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns in less than three quarters, and No. 14 Texas A&M bounced back with a 56-24 victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday.


Manziel showed no signs that the right shoulder he injured last week was bothering him. He threw three TDs in the first quarter to help A&M (6-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) build a 28-point lead. He tacked on another score before sitting down with 6 minutes left in the third quarter and the Aggies leading 42-17.


The Aggies rebounded from last week's upset loss to Auburn despite playing a messy game where they had five turnovers.


Freshman Patton Robinette had a tough time in his first start filling in for the injured Austyn Carta-Samuels for Vanderbilt (4-4, 1-4). 


He threw two interceptions -- one was returned for a score -- and was sacked five times.
