CFB: (24) Auburn at (7) Texas A&M
Meanwhile, in sleeping giant territory, Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies are lying in wait outside the SEC West and BCS National Championship discussions ... for now. But not for long -- if they keep winning. Standing in their way this week is a surprisingly rebuilt Auburn Tigers team, one that has more than bounced back from its dreadful 3-9/0-8 showing a year ago. Will the Aggies remain a lurking force?
Alabama defeats Aggies 49-42
Alabama's quest for a third straight BCS championship is still safely on track after a 49-42 win over Texas A&M and Johnny Manziel in College Station. What now? Will the Crimson Tide run the table? Will AJ McCarron be in New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation? What is the next "must watch" game on the calendar?
CFB: (1) Alabama at (6) Texas A&M
No big deal. Just Week 3 in college football, featuring mismatches, nonconference curiosities and ... an epic SEC battle. Yes, it's Alabama versus Texas A&M. Title versus Heisman. Defense (and some offense) versus offense (and not much defense). Who will emerge victorious? Will they go on to play for the title? Remember: The loser of last season's meeting -- in Tuscaloosa, Ala., no less -- ended up smiling at the end of the season.
Johnny Manziel shows immaturity?
A day later, and he's still the story: reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, who sat out the first half, then helped power No. 7 Texas A&M to a 52-31 win over Rice ... while also earning an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for his gestures to Owls players. Some say this is a sign of immaturity, and it'd be hard to argue otherwise if his behavior ends up hurting the Aggies down the line. Still, Johnny's football was pretty electrifying.
The NCAA's decision to suspend Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel for the first half of the Aggies' season opener against Rice didn't meet with much approval from SportsNation.
The Facebook conversation on the discipline centered on the severity of the punishment and why Manziel accepted it if the NCAA acknowledged he did not receive money for signing autographs.
