"Johnny Football" had an incredible collegiate football career at Texas A&M, which included countless highlight-reel plays and even a Heisman Trophy. However, that's not to say there weren't a few plays throughout his college career that he would like to forget.

While one of the biggest wins of Manziel's career came against the Alabama Crimson Tide one year prior, he would probably like to forget this specific play against the Tide in 2013.

After launching a pass to a heavily covered-wide receiver and having it picked off, Manziel went to try and help the situation by attempting to make the tackle. It did not go well, and Manziel got juked out of his shoes as Bama safety Vinnie Sunseri ran the ball all the way back for a touchdown.

It was an impressive pick by Sunseri, and an even more impressive run back for the touchdown. I'm sure making the legendary Johnny Football look bad in the process was a nice cherry on top too.
