LSU Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies

The Tigers are enigmatic group. Most experts believe they should have been better than they actually were, which is harsh considering they went 10-2 this year.

Les Miles botched his clock management on more than one occasion. The Tigers quarterback play wasn’t good either as they finished 107th among all FBS teams. The tandem of Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee did not produce what was expected (or at least hoped for). LSU does boast an excellent defense and a good running game.

The Aggies were impressive down the stretch, as they beat Oklahoma 33-19 and Nebraska 9-6. At one point they had lost three in a row and were stuck at 3-3. After their third straight loss, a three touchdown shellacking at the hands of Mizzou, the Aggies turned to Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. Tannehill helped the Aggies win their last six games. Von Miller was a monster on the other side of the ball, and has just been named the winner of the Butkus Award as the best linebacker in the nation.

If Texas A&M makes LSU one-dimensional on offense the Aggies could actually take this one.

Cotton Bowl: LSU vs. Texas A&M
by: Bo Lewis

LSU is one heartbreaking loss away from taking a Sugar Bowl spot this season. They lost to Arkansas in a great game, and they decided that they wanted to go to the Cotton Bowl instead of the Capitol One Bowl this season. They are actually two close fourth quarters from being in the National Title game, but the LSU fans are some of the best in the nation, and they are just happy to be going to a highly ranked bowl game.

Texas A&M started the season 3-3, and their coach was supposedly on his way out at the end of the season. Instead of packing it in, however, they changed quarterbacks and proceeded to upset both Oklahoma and Nebraska on their way to a six game winning streak and an overall record of 9-3. What does that say about the representatives of both the Big 12 North and South when they were both beaten handily by the Aggies and their new and improved Wrecking Crew defense.

I'd go with A&M over the Mad Hatter. Sorry Tigers fans.
