Texas A&M vs LSU Game Preview


Why Texas A&M Will Win

The Aggies need to force a whole slew of mistakes to win, and LSU is happy to make them.

This isn’t a high-powered A&M offensive machine even though it’s good from three and among the best in the SEC overall from the field, but it’s at its best when it’s forcing turnovers.

This might not be scintillating offensively, but the two will come up with an entertaining defensive fight.
