Stats to consider:

LSU Tigers:

  • LSU is 10-2.
  • Points for per game: 28.8 (51st)
  • Points against per game: 17.8 (11th)
  • Passing yards a game: 155.4 (107th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 179.2 (30th)

Texas A&M Aggies:

  • The Aggies are 9-3.

  • Points against per game: 20.3 (25th)
  • Passing yards a game: 281.8 (18th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 165.8 (45th)

What to watch for:

  • LSU Junior QB Jordan Jefferson has thrown for 1,253 yards 4 TDs and 9 Ints. He has been largely inconsistent as he as only eclipsed 200+ passing yards once and has only thrown for more than 1 TD once. His performance will be huge to the outcome. Jefferson has rushed for 383 yards and 6 TDs.
  • LSU Junior RB Stevan Ridley has rushed for 1,042 yards and 14 TDs. He was suspended for academics, but has been reinstated.
  • A&M Junior QB Ryan Tannehill has thrown for 1,434 yards 11 TDs and 3 Ints. Junior WR Jeff Fuller has 983 yards and 12 TDs.
  • Aggies Junior RB Cyrus Gray has rushed for 1,033 yards and 12 TDs. He also has 242 receiving yards and another TD.

This football pick looks to be a tough one. LSU has continually proven they are legit this year. A&M has done the same thing, and their 3 loses came back to back to back vs teams like Oklahoma State, #11 Arkansas, and #21 Missouri. After that rough stretch, they were perfect. The ranked teams that LSU beat on the year were North Carolina, West Virginia, Florida, and Alabama. Alabama is the only team that is still ranked out of those teams. A&M is a very strong team on defense and offense and should have the upper hand at QB.
