Texas A&M vs. Alabama: Johnny Manziel showing no fear of the Tide

With the Aggies up 14-0, Johnny Manziel started the game 4 for 4 and looks like he's more than ready to play the spoiler role.

Well, Johnny Manziel doesn't seem the least bit scared of big bad Bama. Johnny Football showed all kinds of poise on Texas A&M's first two drives -- the second starting in good field position after AJ McCarron's first interception in what felt like five years -- giving the Aggies an early 14-0 lead over Alabama.

Manziel has shown a gunslinger mentality that can get him into trouble, but has made all the right plays at the beginning of A&M's first meeting against Alabama as a member of the SEC, including a scramble that will be talked about for the rest of the season if the Aggies can find a way to hold onto their early lead.

It's definitely early, but Nick Saban looks to be sweating a little bit after his once untouchable team has looked far from invincible in the last five quarters.
