LSU is currently 8-3 and in the midst of a unique season. Their offense is absolutely elite, led by superstar quarterback and Heisman candidate Jayden Daniels. Despite LSU’s defensive failures and the fact the Tigers aren’t a College Football Playoff contender, Daniels body of work still demands he wind up in New York for the trophy presentation — and he might win the whole thing. Meanwhile, A&M is just trying to get to the end of a season that resulted in head coach Jimbo Fisher’s firing.
For this SEC West bout taking place in Baton Rouge, FanDuel has LSU opening as a -13.5 favorite over Texas A&M, while the over/under has been set at 64.5. The Tigers are also a -630 money-line favorite while the Aggies are significant underdogs at +450.

Following Texas A&M’s 51-10 victory over Mississippi State two Saturday’s ago, Jimbo Fisher was fired, leaving assistant Elijah Robinson as the interim head coach. Well, he is now on the board in the Aggie record books, as he led A&M to a victory in Week 12. With Fisher’s firing lingering fresh over the program, Texas A&M held strong and defeated Abilene Christian by a score of 38-10 on Senior Day.
They even gave some of their veteran walk-ons a chance to run their own kickoff unit late in the game, and the result was a thing of poetry. The walk-ons not only executed kickoff coverage excellently, they also forced a fumble on the play to really cap off a feel-good afternoon for A&M amid another year of disappointment overall.
Likewise, LSU also beat up on a much inferior non-power conference opponent in their immense 56-14 victory over Georgia State. In the win, Jayden Daniels threw for 400+ yards once again and cashed in on six passing scores and another two on the ground to make him responsible for ALL EIGHT of the Tiger touchdowns — every single score the team made.
On the heels of a truly unbelievable performance against Florida, where Daniels put up 600+ yards of offense while leading the offense to another 50+ point output, he came up with yet another Heisman-caliber outing. Between he and Bo Nix, the Heisman race is certainly going to be electric as we head into the final week of the regular season. Daniels could really punctuate a monster season with one more huge-numbers game to perhaps solidify his Heisman chances.
