College football | Around the nation: Manziel struggles against LSU defense in 34-10 loss

High Contrast Normal Version

No. 18 LSU 34, No. 9 Texas A&M 10: Terrence Magee piled up a career-high 149 yards rushing, and LSU’s defense pulled the plug on Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M’s offense.

What was likely Manziel’s only visit to Tiger Stadium was among the worst outings of his career. He passed for 224 yards and a TD, but completed only 16 of 41 passes and was sacked twice and intercepted twice as the Aggies’ road winning streak ended at 10.

The Tigers (8-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) became the first team to shut out Manziel in a first quarter since September 2012, and they ended A&M’s 13-game streak of scoring 40 or more points. The Aggies’ point and yardage totals were their lowest since coach Kevin Sumlin arrived last season.

LSU’s Zach Mettenberger completed 11 of 20 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns without an interception in chilly, wet and windy conditions. He found Jarvis Landry four times for 87 yards, including touchdowns of 40 and 10 yards. LSU piled up 324 yards on 55 carries, with Magee and Kenny Hilliard each powering in for short scores. LSU also outgained Texas A&M (8-3, 4-3) in total yards, 517-299.
