The dawn of another Ohio State football season is upon us, and 2014 figures to be an unpredictable year with so much change on both sides of the ball.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is probably the most well-known fan of the popular hip hop/ R&B artists Drake. After self imposing a Twitter freeze during the summer I believe it was a weekend hanging out with Drake at a concert that prompted Johnny Football to tweet once again (which he has since stopped doing again).

Kentucky at Mississippi State 7:30 PM ET ESPN/Watch ESPN
This is a big game for the Bulldogs who at 3-3 have a chance at a bowl game, if and only if they can beat the Wildcats. Though they show signs of improvement, at times, Kentucky is still a very bad football team ranking 84th or worse in Points Against, Points for, Passing yards and Rushing yards...
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 hype entering Saturday's game between top-ranked Alabama and No. 15 Texas A&M revolves around the Crimson Tide's dominate defense and the Aggies' prolific offense.
But that only tells part of the story. It overshadows Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore. McCarron is a Heisman Trophy candidate who hasn't thrown an...

The Texas A&M Football team lost to the LSU Tigers 24-19 at Kyle Field. The Aggies came away empty-handed on Saturday because they made too many mistakes against a top-notch football team.
These two teams clashed in the 2011 Cotton Bowl and A&M was outclassed in the trenches. LSU’s offensive line pushed Texas A&M’s front seven all over the field in the Tigers’...
