Texas A&M and Jimbo Fisher are bracing for their 3rd number one ranked opponent this season

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KXAN) — Texas A&M (7-4, 4-3) will go where no college football team has gone before when they face No. 1 LSU on Saturday in Baton Rouge.

According to the Associated Press, the Aggies will be the first team to face three No. 1 ranked teams in the same season.

On Sept. 7, Texas A&M lost at No. 1 Clemson 24-10. Five weeks later, the Aggies lost at home to No. 1 Alabama 47-28.

A&M is coming off a 19-13 loss at No. 4 Georgia while also losing 28-20 to No. 8 Auburn earlier this season.

Last year, Texas A&M won a historic seven overtime game against LSU 74-72 in College Station.

Texas A&M will try to slow down the nation’s third highest scoring offense, the Tigers are averaging 48.5 points per game while Texas A&M is allowing just over 20 points per game.

LSU will be aiming to complete an undefeated regular season on their way to the SEC Championship game against Georgia next week. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. Saturday.
