Kenny Hill- Texas A&M. Kenny Hill had a fantastic debut on the brand new SEC Network against highly ranked South Carolina. Hill and his Aggies looked unstoppable.
He threw 511 yards on 44/60 passing which was good for 3 TDs.
Those numbers beat anything Johnny Manziel ever put up and this was in his very first game and against a supposedly quality opponent.
Watch out SEC!!!
The runner up is also from the SEC.
