Texas A&M 52, Rice 31, Final

Texas A&M got through its first college football game of the 2013 football season, and it wasn't pretty.

Not only did Rice put up 31 points, but the Owls gained 509 yards of offense against the Aggies.  A&M also lost two players in the game to ejections, one for fighting, one for targeting.

On top of all that, Manziel, after his much-anticipated return, was benched in the fourth quarter by head coach Kevin Sumlin after a bone-headed unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty.
