Challenges for LSU

LSU went on to have an amazing season after the opening close loss to Georgia Tech. The Aggies are in a mess right now but the Tigers can’t afford to take A&M lightly. Remember, Texas A&M nearly beat Alabama back in early October. The Aggies have talented players, they just haven’t put things together well. One player who has excelled this season for A&M is running back Devon Achane. He’s rushed for 887 yards and six touchdowns this season while averaging over 5 1/2 yards a carry. He also has 36 receptions for 196 yards and three TDs and has 312 yards in kickoff returns. His 28.4 yards per return average is fourth best nationally.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
