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?

CFB: (13) LSU at (1) Alabama

With each passing week, the Alabama Crimson Tide looks more and more like a team that deserves its likely shot at a third straight national championship. Since beating Texas A&M 49-42 in College Station, Texas, the top-ranked Tide have allowed 26 points total in six games. They've scored less than 31 just once. Bad news for the visiting LSU Tigers? Could be, if their most recent SEC clash (a 27-24 loss at Ole Miss) is any indication.

CFB: (17) Florida at (10) LSU

The showdowns keep coming in the SEC, with slots in the title game as hard as ever to snag. This week: Florida, unbeaten in conference play, faces LSU, which lost to Georgia two weeks back. Can the defensively charged Gators slow down the dynamic Tigers?

Is Georgia a legitimate contender?

If you turned the channel for just a moment, there was a good chance that you missed a score in the Georgia-LSU game. It was a high-scoring, back-and-forth affair in which the Bulldogs snapped the Tigers' 29-game win streak in the month of September with a 44-41 win. Quarterbacks Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger showed out with performances of 298 yards and four touchdowns, and 372 yards and three touchdowns, respectively. That might have been a nod to the officials, who set the tone early by letting the defense play and not calling ticky-tack penalties. What does this win mean for Georgia's championship hopes? Which team will win the SEC East? Which team will win the West?
