COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Johnny Manziel returned to the starting lineup and amassed 426 passing yards Saturday in No. 7 Texas A&M's 65-28 pounding of Sam Houston State.

Manziel also ran for a score before leaving late in the third quarter as the Aggies (2-0) cruised to the one-sided win.

Tra Carson scored twice on the ground and Mike Evans made seven catches for 155 yards for the victors.

Timothy Flanders run for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries for Sam Houston State (1-1).
