BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Johnny Manziel is in contention for a second straight Heisman Trophy. It could come down to how well Manziel plays in two tough road games at the end of the regular season, starting today with No. 9 Texas A&M's visit to No. 18 LSU.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — With the possibility of postseason play no longer in the picture, Bret Bielema and the Razorbacks will try to pass along their bowl-less fate today when they host Mississippi State. The Bulldogs need wins in each of their last two games to reach a bowl game for the fourth straight season.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — The first year of Todd Monken's tenure as Southern Mississippi's head coach has been one to forget. The Golden Eagles are stuck in a 22-game losing streak — the longest in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Now Southern Miss will host Middle Tennessee today for the final home game of the season.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) —Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze likes to push the pace on offense. But when the No. 24 Rebels host No. 8 Missouri today, that strategy might be slightly altered. Freeze says the Ole Miss offense can't be impatient against Missouri, which has a knack for making big plays.
