Miles confident his defense is ready for A&M
BATON ROUGE - If Les Miles is worried about how his embattled defense will hold up against Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M's relentless, up-tempo offense, he isn't showing it.
The ninth-ranked Aggies' visit to Death Valley on Saturday afternoon will feature two of the top quarterbacks in the Southeastern Conference, as well as some of the best receivers and running backs - seemingly all the ingredients of a high-scoring affair.
LSU's coach, however, said he is "not looking forward to that style of game."
While Miles says Manziel's talent in unsurpassed in college football, he also notes that his No. 18 Tigers are tough to play in Death Valley and that he expects his defense to play their best and get stops against the Aggies' Southeastern Conference-leading offense.
