Wanna Bet on Johnny Football?

Wanna Bet on Johnny Football?

On the same weekend college football returns – UAlbany is at Duquesne, Syracuse and Penn State play at Metlife Stadium in NJ and Army hosts Morgan State at Michie Stadium at West Point – the current Heisman Trophy  winner is back, too.

However, Johnny Manziel, also known as “Johnny Football,” the quarterback for Texas A&M is suspended for the first half of the Aggies game with Rice for improperly using his likeness. Well, about a half hour after that game kicks off on Saturday, there’s a race at Saratoga involving a horse named “Johnny Football.”

He’s not suspended. It’s in the second race, the $85,000 for 2-year olds. "Johnny Football" is ridden by Robby Albarado and currently listed at 8-to-1.
