The Alabama defense looks to put Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel on the ground this Saturday during the match-up between the Tide and Aggies.
But before then, customers at Otey's Tavern will have a chance to get their swings at Johnny "Pinata".
"The huge joke is that it's a life size pinata of Johnny Manziel at three-feet-six-inches," bar owner Will Haver said.

Haver said the challenge was to finding someone to create the pinata in the likeness of the Heisman Trophy winner.
"We ended up finding this sweet lady in Cullman, Alabama, that had the time and could make it," Haver said. "She didn't know who Johnny Manziel was. So we sent her a picture."
Talk about the detail. Johnny "Pinata" has a sharpie to sign autographs in one hand, and a fist full of cash in the other. Okay, so it's not too flattering.
"The acne his hilarious," Haver added.
There's no truth in the rumor that this pinata is filled with Manziel autographs and cold hard cash.
"We have gift cards, candy, prizes. We're really trying to determine when to bust him open. We may involve a charity."
Before customers mangle Manziel, it's become quite popular with the crowd.
"They've been coming in, taking pictures of it," manager Rodney Davis said. "I've been taking pictures with him. Johnny Manziel has just been wonderful."
No. 1 Alabama visits No. 6 Texas A&M at College Station this Saturday for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff.
