COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- A 47-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Hill late in the fourth quarter sparked sixth-ranked LSU to a 24-19 comeback win over No. 19 Texas A&M Saturday.
Hill ran for 127 yards for LSU (7-1, 3-1 SEC) and gave the Tigers a 24-12 lead with 3:12 to play, and the cushion they needed to hold off a late rally by the Aggies (5-2, 2-2).
Zach Mettenberger was 11-of-29 for 97 yards and a TD for the Tigers.
Johnny Manziel completed 26-of-56 passes for 276 yards for Texas A&M but he was picked off three times. The Aggies also lost two fumbles.
A&M led 12-0 in the second quarter but a pair of late TDs staked LSU to a 14-12 halftime lead.
The Tigers kept the Aggies off the scoreboard in the second half until 1:17 remained in the game when Ben Malena ran in a 5-yard touchdown.
