Recap


Texas A&M 30, Ole Miss 27:
Ben Malena (142 yards) Johnny Manziel (129) each rushed for career highs as the Aggies overcame six turnovers - and a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter - to win their first Southeastern Conference road game.

Manziel rushed for a 29-yard score with 6:24 remaining before hitting Ryan Swope for the go-ahead 20-yard touchdown pass with 1:46 left. Manziel completed 17 of 26 for 191 yards and two interceptions.

Malena had a 59-yard touchdown run 49 seconds into the game to give Texas A&M (4-1, 2-1) a quick lead.

Ole Miss sophomore defensive back Cody Prewitt was involved in four of the Aggies' turnovers, grabbing an interception, forcing two fumbles and recovering another. The Rebels (3-3, 0-2), though, scored only 10 points off those takeaways.

Bo Wallace passed for 305 yards and a touchdown and ran for another, but his interception with a minute left sealed the game.

GAME NOTEBOOK: It was the Rebels' 16th straight SEC loss and seventh consecutive setback in home league openers. ... Texas A&M's Steven Jenkins returned an interception 37 yards just before halftime to tie the game. It was the third consecutive game that the Aggies had a defensive score ... Texas A&M had only one turnover in its first four games.
