Within the Southeastern Conference, the grind never ends, and Saturday, two divisional foes in Texas A&M and Mississippi State will face off in hopes of earning another win in league play.
As A&M approaches the end of its season, Mississippi State remains its easiest test, but the Bulldogs still present a tough challenge for the Aggies. Under sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel, A&M needs to win out to have a shot at a top-tier bowl and impress in each of those wins to have any inkling of a possible BCS berth.
From Mississippi State's perspective sitting at 4-4 (1-3 SEC), A&M represents another win on the road to a bowl game, as the Bulldogs still sit two games short with the Aggies, Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss left on the schedule.
