Johnny Cam: Alabama-A&M broadcast to follow Manziel's every move

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

CBS will unveil the "Johnny Cam" for the high profile matchup between the Aggies and the Tide.

CBS Sports will have a camera dedicated to following quarterback Johnny Manziel's every movement during this Saturday's SEC showdown between Texas A&M and Alabama, according to Sports Illustrated.

CBS says coverage of the game won't turn into a Manziel circus with coordinating producer Craig Silver comparing it to the network's previous coverage of former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. Silver told SI his goal for the game is to "remember there is a lot more going on than Johnny Manziel."

It's impossible to know how much CBS will switch to the "Johnny Cam" during the game, but with the amount of controversy surrounding the quarterback, it's a safe bet that there will be a lot of attention directed his way.

The reigning Heisman winner has had a busy start to the football season. He was suspended for two quarters in the Aggies' opener, ending an NCAA investigation into whether or not he received money for his autograph. When he finally entered the game, he threw three touchdowns in just eight attempts, celebrating with a money gesture and a mimed autograph signing before getting benched after receiving this taunting penalty.

The incident prompted a storm of angry reactions from college football figures, including Lou Holtz and Barry Switzer, who both preferred violence to Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin's form of discipline.

Saturday's game should be one of the biggest of the college football season -- Alabama is the top-ranked team in the country while Texas A&M is ranked sixth. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
