The LSU Tigers got a boost on Saturday in Baton Rouge when they defeated their SEC West rivals, the Texas A&M Aggies 34-10.

Despite the victory on the gridiron, LSU was also victorious in something else very vital.

When the dust settled and the clock in Tiger Stadium hit 0:00, LSU out rushed the Aggies 324-75.

Besides the numbers on the scoreboard, the numbers in the books of those keeping stats for this game was simply remarkable.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was 16/41, and threw for 224 yards. But the most startling of all, Manziel's quarterback rating dropped down to 14.9! Once you look back through Manziel's stats from when he was a freshman to present, you will see no other team has been able to drop his quarterback rating that low. Not to forget, only a select few of defenses have been able to keep Manziel under 300 yards.

Another reason why LSU fans have the right to rejoice, the Tigers were able to stop Mike Evans who was only held to 51 yards receiving on Saturday. For the season, Evans has 12 touchdowns and 1, 314 yards rushing.

The only question that remains: Where was this defense in the Ole Miss, Georgia or Alabama game?
