The SEC: Where offense is fey and having the conference’s most dynamic player embedded in the turf will be termed a victory. We’re not expecting the Aggies to gain much traction. The key will be sealing off Manziel on third downs, where his scrambling has been lethal. LSU allowed three third downs on quarterback runs against Florida. The Tigers should be the stiffest test Texas A&M’s run defense has faced, though that unit has impressed this year. A win here would be massive for Texas A&M. Many did not anticipate them competing in the SEC at all, let alone the first season. Not sure we’re ready to predict that.
Incidentally: Texas A&M issued a “Code Maroon” and evacuated its campus after a bomb threat yesterday. This scheduling was not an ESPN conspiracy to pump up Texas. Here’s another Johnny Football profile. We’ve seen no reports Baton Rouge was annexed.
