LSU vs. Texas A&M score update: Tigers lead Aggies at halftime, 14-12

The No. 6 LSU Tigers hold a 14-12 halftime lead over the No. 18 Texas A&M Aggies at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas. The Aggies dominated most of the half until two late turnovers allowed the Tigers to erase a 12-0 deficit.

A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel completed 16-of-31 passes for 169 yards in the half, but his interception at the 4:22 mark in the second quarter led to LSU's first touchdown, a 20-yard run by Michael Ford.

Ford had a big run on the prior play as well, rushing for 13 yards on 4th-and-1 from the Texas A&M 33-yard line. Before that play, LSU had been held to under 70 yards of total offense by the Aggies' defense. A&M put constant pressure on Tigers quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who didn't get going until the final drive, which was aided by Ben Malena's fumble in A&M territory. Ford had another big run, then Mettenberger connected with Kadron Boone for a 29-yard touchdown strike to put LSU ahead.

Texas A&M scored on its first drive of the game, good for 75 yards on 12 plays, and was capped off by a 2-yard touchdown trot from Christine Michael. Taylor Bertolet missed the extra point, but went on to hit field goals from 32 and 50 yards.
