Tigers beat Texas Aggies, 24-19

It wasn't pretty, but it was sweet.
The LSU defense bailed out the offense again, this time against the Aggies and the 12th Man as the Tigers won 24-19.
The Tigers defense forced five turnovers and scored 21 points off those, none bigger than a 47-yard scamper by true freshman Jeremy Hill, who finished with a career-high 127 yards in his first start.

Johnny Manziel aka Johnny Football torched the Tigers in the first half with a series of throws and runs that semeed to befudded the Tigers early.

A&M raced to a 12-0 lead in the first quarter and had several chances to add to it as the Aggies' defense forced punts on all of LSU's first-quarter drives. But then Manziel started to make mistakes, due to LSU making slight adjustments on the defensive end.

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who played decent, said they had it all under control the whole while.

"There's really no reason to panic when you get down," Mettenberger said. "You just have to keep grinding away, keep focusing and keep believing. We did that and right before the half we got two quick possessions and two quick touchdowns."

"Defense just had to get their feet set and understand what was going on," LSU coach Les Miles said, "get the comfort of the scheme and the habit of throw and how to chase that quarterback. He's a gutsy, tough guy."

LSU goes into the bye week at 7-1 while the Aggies fell to 5-2.
