suspended for the first half of Saturday's season opener.

According to a report by ESPN, after officials met with Manziel for nearly six
hours Sunday, the NCAA and Texas A&M came to an agreement Wednesday to bench
the Heisman Trophy winner for the first half against Rice.
The decision to suspend Manziel closes the book on the signal-caller's recent
issues, stemming from an investigation by the NCAA about whether Manziel
received compensation for signing autographs at different locations, including
South Florida while attending last January's BCS National Championship Game.
