Scott Halleran/Getty Images(COLLEGE STATION, Texas) —  Johnny Manziel threw for 446 yards and tied a career-high with five touchdown passes as (15) Texas A&M held off Mississippi State 51-41 on Saturday.

The crowd at Kyle Field chanted “one more year” late in the game for the Heisman Trophy winner, who could have played in his final home game for Texas A&M if he elects to leave for the NFL after the season ends.

“Not one bit,” he said when asked about the possibility of entering the draft after the season. “I’m focused on trying to get us to a BCS bowl.”

Mississippi State (4-5, 1-4 SEC) cut the lead to 10 points in the fourth quarter before Manziel threw his fifth touchdown pass of the game to give Texas A&M a 44-27 lead.

Malcome Kennedy and Travis Lahbart each hauled in two touchdown passes for Texas A&M, (8-2, 4-2) while Mike Evans had 116 yards receiving to break the the school single-season record with 1,263.

Dak Prescott threw for 149 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.
