It is a SEC showdown featuring two Top 25 ranked SEC West teams when Ed Orgeron leads the No. 7 ranked LSU Tigers (9-2) into College Station to take on Jimbo Fisher and the No. 22 Texas A&M Aggies (7-4) on Saturday night.

The Aggies boast one of not only the SEC’s best defenses, but one of the best rush defenses in the entire country. Texas A&M allows 80.8 rushing yards per game, which ranks second in the nation only to Michigan State.
It is primarily because of that reason LSU (+3.5) are considered underdogs heading into Saturday. Orgeron feels comfortable with his Tigers despite the “underdog” designation.
“I don’t know nothing about favored or not favored. I’m glad that they’re favored. We do well as underdogs. I hope that puts a chip on our team’s shoulder. I won’t mention it. Us being a Top-10 team we got to play like it. Whether we beat them for many years, they beat us has nothing to do with this game and we all know that.
But I think it’s extra motivation on both sides, obviously. They’re going to use that as motivation and we will too, obviously. I think this is a rivalry game, you can throw out all the rankings, you can throw out all the point spreads, it’s going to be about us taking care of the football.”
LSU senior running back Nick Brossette has been one of the primary sources of offense for the Tigers this season. His 13 rushing touchdowns are tied for 12th in the country.
What makes the 13-touchdown total even more relevant in this game? It is the same amount of touchdowns Brossette’s counterpart in this game, Texas A&M junior running back Trayveon Williams, has this season.
Williams, unlike Brossette, has had the pleasure of running behind the nation’s best offensive lines. Williams’ 1,326 rushing yards place him at No. 4 in the country, behind only Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor, Memphis’ Darrell Henderson and Arizona State’s Eno Benjamin.
