AUBURN, Ala. -- Johnny Manziel ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more - all in a little more than a half - and No. 22 Texas A&M beat struggling Auburn 63-21 on Saturday night.

On eight possessions led by Manziel, Texas A&M (6-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) scored seven touchdowns. The only non-scoring drive run by the freshman nicknamed "Johnny Football" ended with a missed 48-yard field goal by Taylor Bertolet on the final play of the first half.

Manziel was in the game for only one series in the third quarter before watching the remainder of the rout from the sideline. He completed 16 of 23 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns and had nine carries for 90 yards and three scores.

Auburn (1-7, 0-6), which has lost five straight, is off to its worst start since going 1-7 in 1952.
