OXFORD, Miss. (AP)— Johnny Manziel threw for 191 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 129 yards and another score and Texas A&M rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat Mississippi 30-27 Saturday night.

Manziel suffered through a tough night until late in the fourth quarter, when he led two touchdown drives. He rushed for a 29-yard touchdown on the first and then found Ryan Swope for a 20-yard TD pass with 1:46 remaining for the go-ahead score.

Texas A&M (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) won despite a season-high six turnovers, including four fumbles and two interceptions.

Ole Miss made a final drive but Texas A&M's Toney Hurd, Jr., intercepted a Bo Wallace pass and the Aggies were able to run out the clock.

Ole Miss (3-3, 0-2) lost its 16th straight conference game dating back to 2010. Jeff Scott rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown.
