Manziel, Matthews earn SEC weekly honors

October, 1, 2012
After his record-setting performance in Texas A&M's 58-10 win over Arkansas on Saturday, redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel was named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week by the league office.

The Kerrville (Texas) Tivy product set an SEC and Texas A&M record with 557 offensive yards (453 passing, 104 rushing) in the win over the Razorbacks. His 453 passing yards were also a school record and he accounted for four touchdowns (three passing, one rushing). As has been the case all season, Manziel committed zero turnovers.

Manziel was also named SEC Tri-Freshman of the Week along with Georgia tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.

Matthews, a junior right tackle, was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week. Matthews was part of an offensive line that yielded zero sacks and paved the way for a 716-yard offensive output by the Aggies, the third-best single-game total in A&M history. Matthews did not get flagged and graded out the best of the A&M offensive linemen against the Razorbacks.
