LSU (9-2, 6-1 SEC) goes after its 10th win of the season on Saturday as the No. 6 Tigers travel to face Texas A&M (4-7, 1-6 SEC). Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN with Joe Tessitore (pxp), Greg McElroy (analyst) and Katie George (sideline reporter) on the call. LSU is 35-22-3 all-time against the Aggies, which includes an 8-2 mark since Texas A&M joined the SEC in 2012. Last year, LSU posted a 27-24 win over Texas A&M in Tiger Stadium. LSU, who has already clinched a spot in the SEC Championship Game against top-ranked Georgia on Dec. 3 in Atlanta, enters the game riding a 5-game winning streak as the Tigers have reeled off wins over Florida, No. 7 Ole Miss, No. 6 Alabama, Arkansas and UAB in consecutive contests. LSU

is ranked No. 6 in both the AP and AFCA Coaches Polls. The Tigers are coming off a 41-10 win over UAB last week in Tiger Stadium. The win was the 19th straight during the month of November for teams coached by Brian Kelly (16 at Notre Dame, 3 at LSU). LSU QB Jayden Daniels has accounted for 26 TDs (11 rush, 15 pass), which ranks No. 5 in LSU single-season history and ranks No. 4 in the SEC this year. His 11 rushing TDs stands second in the SEC behind only Judkins Quinshon of Ole Miss (16). Daniels is the only quarterback in the SEC to rank among the Top 10 in the league in both rushing yards (No. 10 at 740) and passing yards (No. 6 at 2,377). Defensively, LB Micah Baskerville leads the Tigers with 66 tackles, including 4.0 TFL and a sack, while Harold Perkins leads the Tigers in both sacks (6.5) and tackles for loss (9.0).
