Johnny Manziel vs. Jadaveon Clowney: Who would win an on-field matchup?

USA TODAY Sports

Let's cross our fingers and hope we can see them play on the same field this year.

Heisman Trophy-winner Johnny Manziel and presumed No. 1 NFL Draft pick Jadeveon Clowney are the two biggest stars in college football. It's not that surprising that each one was brought up during the other's interview at SEC Media Days, and Clowney claimed that he could catch the fleet-footed Manziel in the open field:

Naturally, Manziel thinks he'd be fine:

Texas A&M and South Carolina don't play during the regular season, so the only way these two can be on the same field this year is if they meet in the SEC Championship Game. I think that matchup may draw some interest. South Carolina has better odds (+425) to make the title game than Texas A&M (+1050), as it doesn't need to finish ahead of Alabama to get to Atlanta.
