Why LSU will win

Can LSU take its game a few steps further, even if it doesn’t matter That a lot?

Of course it matters. It’s an SEC game against Texas A&M, and winning is a must to stay in the national title chase, but whether it’s by one or 41, beating Georgia next week in the SEC Championship is everything for the College Football Playoff -hunt.

First, the Tigers must roll through an A&M team that is having way too much trouble getting the attack going.

Yes, the weather wasn’t great, but 20 points against UMass was nothing special for A&M in last week’s win.

The passing attack is painfully inconsistent and not sharp enough, it’s terrible on third downs, and worst of all given the team’s style under Jimbo Fisher, the O doesn’t control the clock.

Why Texas A&M Will Win

The pressure is all on the other side of the field.

LSU is doing must win this and that is doing should be relatively impressive. The College Football Playoff thing may be a media discussion, but this team knows what’s at stake.

It knows it might have a shot at playing in the tournament if it can win next week, and… that’s next week. This week it gets a Texas A&M team that will pull out all the stops in its final game of the season.

The LSU offensive line struggles against anyone on a pass rush. Texas A&M struggles up front, but it should have its moments.

LSU lost to Florida State away from Baton Rouge. It was a fight until the last few minutes in Florida. It couldn’t pull off the 13-10 win over Arkansas, and it struggled in the 21-17 at Auburn. Granted, LSU won three real road games against OK-to-mediocre SEC teams, but they were all tough to get through.

Again, this is where Texas A&M’s defense line needs to go up. LSU is 9-0 if it runs over 175 and 0-2 if not. Texas A&M has allowed more than 175 rushing yards six times, and all four wins came when it gave up less than five yards per carry.

What’s going to happen

Texas A&M is going to make this very, very scary for LSU.

The home team has won the last five games in the series and the Aggies are going to play like this is all for the program. Win, and it will make the next nine months a lot easier – and promising.

But the attack just isn’t there.

A&M will put up the good fight, but LSU will push on late with the scoring drive it took to get to Atlanta with the CFP dreams still alive.
