The last time a defense corralled Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M offense, it was Oct. 20, 2012. LSU beat the Aggies 24-19.
Since then, A&M's offense has exploded for 16 straight games: 59 points on Missouri, 63 and 41 on Auburn, 41 on OU, 45 on Arkansas, 51 on Mississippi State, 42 and 29 on Alabama.
And that LSU defense that played so well? That played like LSU defenses of so many years in a row? It's not the same.
LSU this season has given up 44 points to Georgia, 38 to Bama, 27 to Ole Miss, 26 to Mississippi State and 27 to offensively-challenged TCU.
A&M is a five-point underdog Saturday at LSU. The Aggie defense is a sieve, and LSU's offense is potent. But does anyone think Johnny Football can be held down? Let's go with the Aggies in the upset.
