JOHNNY RESERVE
Johnny Manziel's day began late because of the NCAA and ended early because of his mouth.
In between he looked like Johnny Football at his best.
After serving his first-half suspension, the Heisman Trophy winner threw three TD passes, scrambled for 19 yards - and, well, acted up - while No. 7 Texas A&M rolled over Rice, 52-31.
Manziel was sitting out because of what the school called an ``inadvertent'' violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs.
His first touchdown came on a 23-yard pass to Mike Evans on A&M's second drive of the half. But just before that, Manziel got into it with a Rice defender, appearing to mimic signing an autograph while getting up from a tackle.
Coach Kevin Sumlin said he didn't see that exchange, but would have ``done something about it'' if he did.
Manziel ended his day by getting yanked following an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for pointing at the scoreboard after a TD pass in the fourth quarter.

NICE DEBUT
Mack Brown had tears in eyes before the game and a smile on his face after.
In between, he ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns - and vomited on the sideline.
Not a bad start for Brown or No. 10 Florida, which beat Toledo 24-6.
Brown ran 25 times, equally his carries from all of last season.
He was making his first career start, in the lineup in place of Matt Jones, who missed the opener while recovering from a viral infection. He is expected to return next week at Miami, but Brown certainly stated his case to get some carries the rest of the season.

MITCHELL INJURED
North Carolina State turned to Brandon Mitchell as its starting quarterback in the season opener against Louisiana Tech only to lose the Arkansas transfer to an early left foot injury.
Mitchell directed the Wolfpack to touchdowns on the first two possessions before he was hurt when he was stopped on a third-and-1 keeper on his third series. Mitchell headed to the locker room and returned to the sideline on crutches and wearing a protective boot.
Coach Dave Doeren said Mitchell could miss 4-6 weeks.
