    Texas A&M football fans who want to tromp on the same playing surface as Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel can buy some Kyle Field grass.

    Online sales began Monday on live grass from the football stadium in College Station. A new playing surface is being grown off-site and will be installed in time for the 2014 season.

    A&M plans to harvest the current grass following the final home game on Nov. 9. against Mississippi State.

    Buyers must pick up the Aggie field grass the next day.

    Each harvested pallet of about 450 square feet of sod goes for $400. A limited number of single squares of grass are $20 apiece. Buyers will receive a certificate of authenticity.

    Kyle Field uses tifway bermuda that is over seeded with rye grass.
