AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Texas A&M's fast-paced offense and quarterback Johnny Manziel have soared. Auburn's offense remains grounded behind struggling quarterback play.
The 22nd-ranked Aggies (5-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) land their high-flying offense in Auburn Saturday night.
The quarterbacks pretty much sum up how things have gone for both teams. Manziel is only a redshirt freshman but already has a cool nickname, Johnny Football, and close to Cam Newton-like stats.
Auburn (1-6, 0-5) has turned to Clint Moseley at quarterback the past two games. The results have only modestly changed, and the Tigers are off to their worst start in six decades two years after Newton led them to a national title with a no-huddle offense.
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin says, "A wounded animal is a lot of times the most dangerous."
