OXFORD, Miss., Oct. 13 (UPI) --
Johnny Manziel ran for a tying touchdown and Josh Lambo booted a game-winning field goal Saturday, rallying No. 9 Texas A&M
over Mississippi 41-38.
The Aggies (5-1, 2-1 SEC) were trailing 38-31 with 6:05 remaining in the fourth quarter, but Manziel sparked them to 10 straight points ending the game for the comeback win.
The Heisman Trophy-winner engineered a late drive during which he ran 13 yards for a first down on a fourth-and-7 play, then hit Mike Evans for a 26-yard gain to the Rebels' 6-yard line.
Manziel capped the drive with a diving touchdown run with 3:07 left to knot the score 38-38.
After Ole Miss (3-3, 1-3) failed to move the ball on its next possession, Manziel once again took over and reeled off runs of 12 and 13 yards.
After Tra Carson gained 8 yards on a third-and-1 effort, Lambo connected on a 33-yard, game-winning field goal as time expired.
