COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Unable to stop Johnny Manziel, Alabama answered Texas A&M the only way it could: The top-ranked Crimson Tide just kept on scoring, hoping to have the ball last.

When AJ McCarron took a knee to end it, Alabama was finally safe. There was nothing more Manziel could do.

McCarron threw four touchdown passes, Vinnie Sunseri returned an interception 73 yards for a score - sidestepping Johnny Football on the way to the end zone, too - and Alabama paid back No.
