The Texas A&M Aggies kick off their season on Saturday night after a wild offseason of Johnny Manziel distractions. The defending Heisman Trophy winner has been suspended for the first-half of the season-opener, but they still plan to take care of business against the Rice Owls as they begin their hopeful national title campaign.
If the game is out of hand by the start of the second half, it is possible that Manziel could remain on the sidelines, but something tells me coach Kevin Sumlin wants to see his star quarterback on the field to find out if he can stay focused on football.
How can you catch the Rice vs. Texas A&M match up to see how the Aggies respond to a first half without their star? Here is all of the information you will need to catch the game on college football’s opening weekend:
