Tune in at 12:00 PM ET as LSU takes on Texas A&M. Andrew Webster will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Hey Kids! Hope you're ready for a nice little SEC matchup between the Tigers of LSU and the Aggies of Texas A&M
This should be a nice contrast of styles today. The stifling defense of the the Tigers against Johnny "Football" Manziel and the high flying offense of the Aggies. I think this one is going to fantastic.
Also really excited to see Barkevious Mingo chase after Johnny Football. That will be worth the price of admission in and of itself.
Also, BTW, Johnny Football may be the GREATEST nickname in A&M history
One more thing before we head to the game. Don't know if you're watching Ryan Lochte on ESPN College Gameday but I wouldn't bet my life that this kid could spell his own name!
Here's something you may not know...Zach Mettenberger has yet to throw a TD pass against an SEC opponent this season
Here we go...LSU will kick it off
It's a windy day in College Station, Texas...let's play some football!
The wind helps the kick head out of the back of the end zone...so Texas A&M will start the game on their own 25
1st and 10 A&M from the 25...Manziel swings it to McNeal for a gain of 9
2nd and 1 A&M...Manziel in the gun...he'll take it himself but he's stopped short of the first down by the stout LSU defense
3rd and 1 A&M...Maniel completes to Hicks for a first down
1st and 10 A&M from their own 41...Manziel working out of the shotgun...he looks deep but overthrows McNeal...incomplete
2nd and 10 A&M Malena takes the carry and gets over mid field for an Aggies 1st down
1st and 10 A&M...another run...and this one gains 6 yards
2nd and 4 A&M...Manziel throws to Malena at the sidelines and he'll pick up 13 yards and another Aggies 1st down
1st and 10 A&M from the LSU 28...Manziel completes to Johnson for a gain of 4
2nd and 6 A&M...Manziel flushed out of the pocket...and throws it away..incomplete
3rd and 6 A&M from the LSU 24...Malena gets it on the option and gets all the way down to the LSU 6 yard line...great block on the play
1st and goal...Malena gets the carry and he'll be stopped at the LSU 1 yard line
LSU linebacker Barrow is down after that play...not good for Tigers fans
So A&M just driving down LSU throats to open up this game...and you gotta give it up for the Aggies' offensive line...they've been great so far
2nd and goal from the 1...Michael takes the handoff and plunges it for the Texas A&M TOUCHDOWN!
But the PAT is off the upright and NO GOOD...just a 6-0 lead for A&M after that great opening drive
12 plays, 75 yards in just over 4 minutes...So LSU's vaunted defense looking VERY junior varsity to open it up here
But these missed extra points always seem to come back to bite teams in the butt...so we'll have to see
Apologize guys...my internet crapped out there for a minute!
Yeah you have to figure the 11 am start might have something to do with LSU's sluggishness
1st and 10 A&M from their own 20...Manziel throws underneath to Swope...that's close to a first down there
2nd and 1 A&M...Manziel trying to convert the first down with his legs...he gets DRILLED well short of the sticks...nice hit!
Illegal motion on the offense...push em back 5 yards
