If last year's wild game between LSU and Texas A&M was any indication of what's to come this weekend, college football fans should be in for a treat.
Johnny Manziel led the Aggies to an early 12-0 lead at home, but the Tigers came roaring back and reeled off 24 straight points while forcing five turnovers. LSU went on to win 24-19, all-but-eliminating Texas A&M from the SEC West race.
This year, the star power is even greater. Both teams feature skilled playmakers on both sides of the ball, and Manziel and Zach Mettenberger should have no trouble putting up big numbers against defenses that have struggled at times in 2013. With division bragging rights on the line, this should be yet another great SEC matchup with quite a few bowl representatives in attendance.
Rankings and records: Texas A&M comes in with an 8-2 record, ranking 12th in the BCS. They'll need to keep winning, but there's still a decent chance the Aggies could wind up in a BCS bowl game this season. LSU is No. 22 in the BCS but has lost two of their last three games.
Vegas: LSU is favored by four-and-a-half points.
Weather: There's a 50 percent chance of rain on Saturday with temperatures in the upper 50s at kickoff.
Three names to know
Johnny Manziel: Most feel Jameis Winston is on his way to the Heisman. If Manziel is able to put on a show in front of a national audience, he may start stealing some votes back in his favor.
Mike Evans - Evans is Manziel's favorite target down the sidelines, leading the Aggies with 57 catches, 1,263 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.
Jeremy Hill - Hill is quietly putting together a huge season for the Tigers, rushing for 964 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Aggies' questionable front-seven will really be challenged by Hill and LSU's rushing attack on Saturday.
Two things at stake
Texas A&M needs to keep winning if they hope to receive an at-large bid to a BCS bowl game. They have some work to do to catch Auburn, Missouri and South Carolina, and a road win this weekend would go a long way in doing that.
LSU has to be shaken a little bit after losing two of their last three games. A win over the top-15 Aggies would help settle any uneasiness growing in Death Valley.
