LSU has won seven straight games against Texas A&M and all six meetings since the Aggies Joined the SEC.
For a game played on rivalry weekend, it hasn’t been much of one, with A&M’s last win coming in 1995. Head Coach Jimbo Fisher who was once the Offensive Coordinator, for the Bayou Bengals, knows that this could be a great rivalry, if the Aggies could find their way to the right side of the scoreboard.
“I think us getting on the winning track would make it a rivalry,” he said. “You’ve got to have somebody beat you on the other side to do it. so we’ve got our work cut out for us there but i think the significance of it and our locations, our proximities, and our relationship in the sec it should evolve into a very good one.”
Fisher also knows that this series has a history of being one-sided as A&M owned the series winning 6 of seven in the late-80’s and early-90’s, prior to A&M’s recent slide.
“Usually a rivalry goes when both teams win, so we need to pick up our part of it,” he said. “Just like back in the day Texas A&M would dominated LSU, if im not mistaken, in the 80’s they won 6 out of 7 or something crazy like that, and LSU was really good back then too, then they quit playing, and since they’ve been back LSU has had the upper hand.”
The Aggies and Tigers kick off at 6:30 Saturday night at Kyle Field.
