No. 6 LSU travels to end its regular season against Texas A&M in a tilt on Saturday. The Tigers are hoping to win a 10-win regular season in Brian Kelly’s debut season, which would be the first since the 2019 national championship team and only the second since 2012. LSU defeated UAB 41-10 in Week 12 behind three quick touchdowns by Noah Kain.

Texas A&M is having a season to forget in Jimbo Fisher’s fifth year at College Station. The Aggies are 4-7 and hold the worst record in the SEC despite ranking 4th on the 247Sports Talent Composite. The season marks the first missed bowl game for the Aggies in almost 15 years. Last week, Texas narrowly defeated A&M UMass — the bottom-ranked team on the CBS Sports 131 rankings — 20-3. The 20 points tied Eastern Michigan for the fewest points scored by an FBS opponent against UMass, behind UConn, New Mexico State and Temple. Still, the loss sparked a six-game losing streak.

LSU has dominated the rivalry between these two teams, winning the first six matchups after the Aggies joined the SEC. Texas A&M, however, caught the winning streak in 2018 with a historic 74-72 win in seven overtime and eased off in 2020 with a 20-7 win. A now-trained Tiger defeated Texas A&M 27-24 after three touchdown passes from quarterback Max Johnson – ironically now an injured quarterback at Texas A&M.

LSU vs. Texas A&M: Must know

Offensive moderator: When quarterback Jayden Daniels took over at LSU earlier in the season, the Tigers relied primarily on him as game manager. But since a loss to Tennessee, Daniels has carried a much heavier offensive load with great success. The junior has rushed for 337 yards and five touchdowns in his last four games, along with five passing scores. Perhaps Daniels handles the ball best; he only threw two interceptions. His ability keeps LSU on schedule.

Bad season: Texas A&M is shortlisted as one of the most disappointing teams in college football history after earning the No. 1 recruiting ranking all-time in February. The Aggies started the year No. 6 on the preseason AP Top 25 but missed a bowl for the first time since 2008. Fisher’s team had Texas A&M’s worst losing streak since 1972 before ending it with a win over UMass, but the program will have some very tough, very expensive questions to ask in the offseason.

Super Harold: LSU freshman linebacker Harold Perkins has quietly emerged as one of the most dominant players in college football over the past month. Perkins has 26 tackles, seven tackles for loss and five sacks in his last four games, along with 22 pressures and 15 rushes. He was incredibly dominant in a win over Arkansas, firing multiple quarterbacks three times and forcing two fumbles in a tight 13-10 game. Perkins should fight back against Texas A&M’s struggling offensive line. To add insult to injury, Perkins was a Texas A&M commit until very last moment.
