Johnny Football owned what could possibly be his final college football game, but the Texas A&M quarterback still has to wait to own his now world-famous moniker.



Johnny Manziel, who lifted A&M past Duke 52-48 in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on Tuesday, is still fighting for the trademark to the "Johnny Football" name. An examining attorney in the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office has suspended the trademark application filed by JMAN2 Enterprises LLC -- Manziel's corporation.

The trademarking of "Johnny Football" is an attempt to protect the use of the phrase on everything from merchandise to speaking engagements.
