The Texas A&M Aggies are off to a solid start this season, but they haven't exactly played anybody up to this point and their one respectable opponent against TCU, they couldn't score. The LSU Tigers have had a cakewalk schedule as well, but they also have more proven players on their roster and an offense that's firing on all cylinders. I simply trust LSU more in this spot. I'll lay the chalk with the LSU Tigers.
