COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Johnny Manziel threw for 446 yards and tied a career-high with five touchdown passes to lead No. 11 Texas A&M to a 51-41 win Saturday over Mississippi State in what could be the Heisman Trophy winners’ last home game.

The crowd chanted “one more year” late in the game for Manziel, who is eligible for the draft after this season. Whether he comes back remains to be seen, but he went into the stands to celebrate with the student section when the game was over.

Mississippi State cut the lead to 10 points early in the fourth quarter, but Manziel threw his fifth touchdown pass to make it 44-27 for A&M (8-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference).

The defense grabbed an interception and Ben Malena’s 2-yard TD run extended the lead to 51-27.

Dax Prescott threw for 149 yards and two scores and ran for 154 yards for Mississippi State (4-5, 1-4).
