The Texas A&M Aggies look to improve their bowl positing by winning their ninth game of the season. The Texas A&M Aggies have won six of their last seven home games. Trevor Knight is completing 52.5 percent of his passes for 1,911 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. Knight and Jake Hubenak have combined for 19 touchdown passes this season. Josh Reynolds and Christian Kirk have combined for more than 1,569 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns while Ricky Seals-Jones has 20 receptions. The Texas A&M Aggies ground game is averaging 220.1 yards per contest, and Trayveon Williams leads the way with 956 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Texas A&M is allowing 21.1 points and 428 yards per game. Shaan Washington leads the Texas A&M Aggies with 82 tackles, Myles Garrett has 8.5 sacks and Justin Evans has four interceptions.
The Tigers are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games in November. The Aggies are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Tigers are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
LSU has played just two true road games this season and Kyle Field at night is one of the tougher places in the country to play. Not to mention it is senior night and the Aggies will want to send the guys out with a victory. Also, LSU hasn't looked great recently and can struggle big time offensively. With all of Texas A&M's offensive weapons and with help from the home crowd, this is a game the Aggies could win outright. But I'll take my free touchdown.
