Jeremy Hill rushed for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown, and No. 6 LSU rallied from an early deficit to beat No. 20 Texas A&M 24-19 at Kyle Field on Saturday. Michael Ford also had a touchdown run and Zach Mettenberger threw a TD pass to Kadron Boone for the Tigers (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference). A&M (5-2, 2-2) outplayed the Tigers for much of the first half and led 12-0. But the Aggies gave away two costly turnovers just before halftime, and Boone's diving catch in the end zone with 11 seconds left put LSU up 14-12 at the break. Hill finished off A&M with a 47-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Johnny Manziel, A&M's dual-threat quarterback, completed 29 of 56 passes for 276 yards, but threw three interceptions.

LSU and A&M need win to keep pace in SEC West

Sixth-ranked LSU and No. 20 Texas A&M don't have a lot in common. The Tigers (6-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) are known for their tremendous defense and the Aggies (5-1, 2-1) succeed with a prolific offense.

Video: LSU WR Kadron Boone’s diving, over-the-shoulder touchdown against Texas A&M

Tweet     #6 LSU left Kyle Field in College Station, TX with a 24-19 victory over #18 Texas A&M in large part because their defense forced five turnovers.

LSU Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies Preview and Prediction

Texas A&M and LSU have played 50 times, but the 2012 meeting will be the first as SEC foes. These two campuses are separated by less than 400...

Manziel, A&M can't overcome miscues

Texas A&M proved again it can compete with the best teams in the Southeastern Conference. If the Aggies can eliminate their mistakes, maybe they can beat one. Jeremy Hill rushed for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown, and sixth-ranked LSU rallied from an early deficit and beat the 20th-ranked Aggies 24-19 at Kyle Field on Saturday. A&M (5-2, 2-2) outplayed the Tigers...

Johnny Football bursting on the scene in SEC

They call this guy JFF. The J stands for Johnny. The second F stands for Football. The middle F is an adjective. Johnny F. Football. It is a way of explaining the phenomenon. It is as if, and the end of some remarkable play, you're saying, "What can you say? That's just Johnny F'n Football, man." The nickname is perfect in its anonymity, because the truth is...

Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel Is Really Hard To Tackle

If “escapability” is a word, then it seems an apt description of Manziel, who’s only a freshman and seems to possess that mythical SEC speed – just ask the LSU Tigers. Even though there’s no TD on this play, it’s utterly ridiculous that this does not result in at least a 10 yard loss. Hopefully nobody creates anything called Manzieling, the fact that broadcasters seemingly...

We've officially hit the college fantasy football playoff push.  Here's what to watch for in a busy Week 8:12:00pm ETLSU at Texas A&MWill the red hot "Sweep the Leg" Johnny Manziel finally meet his match? This is a weird 11am kickoff (local time), which could work to the Aggies advantage. Maybe the LSU defense will show up half asleep.  Or maybe not.Virginia...

LSU defense confident it can contain Manziel

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By BRETT MARTEL AP Sports Writer Kevin Minter doesn't envision LSU's defense fretting over any quarterback, not even Texas A&M's explosive, headline-grabbing, dual-threat freshman, Johnny Manziel. Minter and LSU held Oregon in check last season. Just last week, the Tigers racked up four sacks against South Carolina's Connor Shaw...

LSU 24, Texas A&M 19: Tigers school Aggies on dangers of turnovers

LSU taught Texas A&M a valuable lesson Saturday. It’s not just that famed speed that kills in the SEC. Turnovers can be deadly, too. The Aggies did more than enough against the Tigers to come up with what would have been the biggest win of their short time in the SEC, including gaining eight more first downs and roughly 100 more yards in total offense. They couldn...
