The LSU Tigers not only dominated the game against the Texas Aggies Saturday, Nov. 23rd, but also diminished the hopes of a second Heisman for Johnny Manziel. The Tigers had no trouble defeating the Aggies 34-10 in Tiger Stadium thanks to a revived running game.
Manziel threw two interceptions in the game, over threw receivers, and was sacked twice. He hit only 16 of 41 passes for 224 yards, making this one of the worst games in the Heisman winner's career.
The loss to the Tigers marked Manziel's first loss on the road and more than likely diminished his hopes of winning the Heisman for a second season in a row.
LSU's coaches and quarterback Zack Mettenberger challenged LSU's offensive line to do their job and they did it well. Keeping Manziel on the bench, and adding points to the scoreboard, the Tigers dominated the game.
Terrance Magee had a career setting game with 13 carries and a touchdown for a total of 149 yards.
Jarvis Landry ran for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Landry surpassed the 1,000 yd. mark in the game, joining Odell Beckham in the 1,000 yd. club. Landry and Beckham are the first in school history to go over 1,000 yds. in the same season in school history.
The Tigers will close out the regular season when they face the Arkansas Razorbacks on Friday, Nov. 29th in Tiger Stadium. The game starts at 1:30 p.m. and will be broadcast by CBS.
