The man in black, Johnny Manziel, is not cooperating.
Mississippi State has been playing up its first in-conference game against Texas A&M for months now, breaking out all-white uniforms and a #SNOWBOWL12 hashtag to commemorate the 2000 Independence Bowl between the two, which was played in snowy Shreveport. So far, the Aggies have made like Starkville's 80-degree weather and refused to play along.
Clad in black, Johnny Manziel and company lead 21-0 early in the second quarter. So far, Señor Football is eight-of-eight for 58 yards through the air, 82 on the ground and this dazzling, 37-yard run on third down, which was the longest run the Bulldogs have given up all year:
Just the latest Manziel scramble that's going to be a lot of fun for somebody to plot on a map. He also earned a penalty for doing Cam Newton's Superman celebration after the score. All days after dressing up as Scooby Doo. Whatever. A&M fans have been there, done that:

And it hasn't just been offensive dominance, either. Tyler Russell got ABSOLUTELY HASHTAGGED (Mississippi State term; it wasn't actually that enormous of a hit) at one point and lost the ball, killing MSU's most promising drive of the day so far.
