Kenny Hill was sensational in his debut as Texas A&M's starting quarterback.

The 511-yard performance by Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill in Thursday night's easy win over South Carolina set a school record for passing yards -- and the school had some fun when Hill set the mark.

Hill helped the Aggies roll up 656 total yards, the most ever gained against South Carolina.

Manziel expressed admiration for Hill's performance, too, saying, "Kenny Football, baby!" when asked about it after the Cleveland Browns' preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

Former Aggies running back Ben Malena, who was a senior last fall and was waived by the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month, praised Hill and Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin.

Keenum, who played for Sumlin at Houston and now is with the Houston Texans, holds the NCAA Division I career passing record with 19,217 yards.
