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.

Should Manziel enter the NFL draft after the season?
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.

Could be, if their most recent SEC clash (a 27-24 loss at Ole Miss) is any indication.
