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.
