Kevin Sumlin an Aggie through '19

Texas A&M will continue to have the coaching services of Kevin Sumlin for another six years after the two sides recently agreed to a contract extension. Sumlin, despite reportedly being a target of USC's head coaching search, chose to stay at the school he has guided to a 19-5 record in the past two seasons. How much of that success was a product of Sumlin's coaching, and how much was the play of Heisman winner Johnny Manziel? Would you have passed up the USC job to stay in Texas? Cast your votes.

Manziel/Aggies fall to LSU

Johnny Manziel's Heisman Trophy hopes took a serious hit on Saturday as Texas A&M fell to LSU, 34-10. Manziel was kept in check by an LSU defense that picked him off twice and limited him to one passing touchdown. Does this loss bring an end to Johnny Football's Heisman hopes? Should Manziel enter the NFL draft after the season?

Is Johnny Manziel still one of the Heisman favorites after Texas A&M's loss to LSU?

CFB: (12) Texas A&M at (22) LSU

Texas A&M might not be fighting for a spot in the BCS National Championship Game -- or the SEC title game, for that matter -- but there's still plenty to play for in Aggieville. Johnny Manziel has his sights set on a second straight Heisman Trophy. The Aggies also could reach a BCS bowl game. The LSU Tigers, meanwhile, are merely trying to salvage a season that didn't quite go as well as hoped. Can they take a major step Saturday?

Manziel injured in A&M's loss

Johnny Manziel has heart. He showed as much in Texas A&M's 45-41 loss to Auburn. He left the game early in the fourth quarter with an injury to his throwing shoulder, but returned on the Aggies' next possession to score the go-ahead touchdown. After the Tigers scored the eventual game-winning touchdown on their ensuing possession, it was time for Johnny Football to take over. Instead it was Auburn's defense that shined, stopping A&M's drive at the 18-yard line. Is Manziel's injury a cause for concern? Is he still a legit Heisman hopeful?
