This Saturday for the first time in more than a year, a ranked Auburn (5-1) ventures to College Station to try and take down the beast that is Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M (5-1).
Auburn finished last in the SEC in total offence last season, so some would say that this game is laughable. The thing people need to realize is: they went from that to having the fifth ranked offence...
Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel has been injured in No. 7 Texas A&M's game against No. 24 Auburn.
Manziel was injured when he was tackled on an 8-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
He got up after the tackle and then went to the ground before he reached the A&M sideline. A&M officials looked at him for a couple of minutes on the turf before he got up and...

There must be something in the water in College Station, Texas.
How else can you explain the success of St. Louis Cardinals rookie pitcher Michael Wacha and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel?
On Friday night, the 22-year-old right-handed Wacha was voted the Most Valuable Player of the National League Championship Series after pitching the Cardinals past the Los Angeles Dodgers...
BATON ROUGE, La. -- It looks like bigger does mean better in the competitive Southeastern Conference - not just in terms of television ratings, but on the field as well.
When Texas A&M and Missouri began SEC play a season ago, few doubted the addition of the two schools would bring more television viewers to the league's games from Texas and Midwest. Still, there were questions...
No. 7 Texas A&M's offense is rolling as usual this season behind another stellar season from Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
The same couldn't be said for the defense. Texas A&M is allowing 32 points and more than 474 yards a game.
The Aggies have been good on defense in spurts this season, but are looking to put together a complete game as they prepare for...

Last year, when these two teams met it was Texas A&M who rolled up 63 points on the Auburn defense and the game was put away at half-time when the Aggies led 42 to 7. Ellis Johnson has taken over the Auburn defense and the Tigers are showing definite...
Auburn is not the push-over it was last year. Combine their improvements with Texas A&M's trouble stopping the run and two interceptions by Johnny Manziel and we have a ball game on our hands folks. However, if the Aggies can continue to get the ball into the hands of wide receiver Mike Evans that could change real quick.

With the weeks quickly dwindling down, now is a time of "make it or break it" for teams searching for another National Championship bid, SEC Championship and even bowl eligibility.
With week 7 wrapped, here are the weekend's top performers:
1. ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE (6-0): Don't freak out, Bama, you're still #1, but after three straight years of this I've run out of pictures of Alabama girls and had to move on to Oregon. I'm sorry, but I'm not. As for the Tide, the defense is back, having held opponents to 68 points through six games (with more than 60% of them coming from Johnny Manziel's Aggies...
The Tigers are experiencing a resounding resurgence in their program, thanks in part to the work of first-year head coach Gus Malzahn, who was offensive coordinator at Auburn from 2009-11.He left to take the head coaching job at Arkansas State, leading the Red Wolves to a 9-3 season. So when Gene Chizik was let go after last season, Auburn administrators had an idea of who they wanted...
