MIAMI - Johnny Football's campaign to win back-to-back Heisman trophy's will get a late start.

ESPN is reporting that Texas A&M Johnny Manziel has been suspended for the first half of the Aggies opener against Rice.

Manziel, the defending Heisman winner, has been in the spotlight for his off-the-field exploits and questions have arisen whether he improperly accepted money for signing autographers.

The sophomore quarterback and NCAA reportedly reached a punishment agreement on Wednesday.
