If this was Johnny Football’s final home game, he gave the fans something to remember.
Johnny Manziel tied a career-high with five touchdown passes Saturday in what could be the Heisman Trophy winner’s last home game.
The crowd chanted “One more year! One more year!” late in the game for Manziel, who is eligible for the draft after this season. Whether he comes back remains to be seen, but he went into the stands to celebrate with the student section when the game was over.
Among the crowd of 88,504, third largest ever at A&M, on hand to see Manziel play at Kyle Field for the possibly final time was former President George H.W. Bush and former Texas A&M and current St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha.
6: Interceptions by no. 3 Florida State in its 59-3 rout of Wake Forest, tying a school record.
40: Years since Minnesota had won four straight Big Ten games before this season.
54: Years since North Carolina State had opened an ACC season 0-6.
115: Career TD passes by Georgia’s Aaron Murray, breaking the SEC record of 114 by Florida’s Danny Wuerffel from 1993-96.
305: Career receptions by Eastern Illinois’ Erik Lora, moving him past Jerry Rice and into third all-time on the FCS list.
717: Total yards by Butler in its 72-12 win over Valparaiso, setting a school record.
2,262: Career yards rushing by John Robertson, most ever by a Villanova quarterback.
GATORS KEEP FALLING
Florida’s injury-riddled season has reached a new low — and it likely will end without a bowl trip.
Tyler Murphy’s four turnovers led to three touchdowns, helping Vanderbilt embarrass Florida 34-17 for the program’s first win in Gainesville since 1945.
The Commodores snapped a 22-game losing streak in the lopsided series and moved a step closer to becoming bowl eligible for the third consecutive season under coach James Franklin.
Franklin also notched another signature win, giving Vanderbilt victories over Southeastern Conference powerhouses Georgia and Florida in the same season for the first time in school history.
Once ranked, Florida has its second four-game losing streak in coach Will Muschamp’s three seasons, fueling more speculation about his future in Gainesville.
