SEC West foes collide at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday when the LSU Tigers travel to Kyle Field to take on the No. 5 Texas A&M Aggies. The Aggies (5-1) are very much in the College Football Playoff picture, but likely need to win out to stay that way. LSU (3-3) has had an up-and-down season coming off its national title last year. The Tigers, however, knocked off Arkansas on the road in their last outing and have won of their last three.
William Hill Sportsbook list the Aggies as 15.5-point favorites, up from opening at -12.5, in the latest Texas A&M vs. LSU odds. The over-under for total points is set at 60.5.

What you need to know about Texas A&M
After a blowout loss to Alabama in their second game, the Aggies rolled to four straight victories, highlighted by a 41-38 win over then-No. 4 Florida. COVID-19, however, has postponed consecutive games for Texas A&M, so Saturday will mark its first game since Nov. 7. Quarterback Kellen Mond and running back Isaiah Spiller are the big names to know on offense. Mond has completed 64.3 percent of his passes for 1,468 yards, 16 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
Spiller has put together an impressive 103-643-5 rushing line on the season. Jalen Wydermyer (28-311-4) is also one of the SEC's best tight ends. Jimbo Fisher's defense is playing at a high level as well. The Aggies lead the SEC in total defense (338.2 ypg) and rank fourth in scoring defense (25.0 ppg).
What you need to know about LSU
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but last Saturday LSU sidestepped the Arkansas Razorbacks for a 27-24 win. The Tigers can attribute much of their success to QB TJ Finley, who passed for two TDs and 271 yards on 42 attempts, and RB Tyrion Davis-Price, who rushed for one TD and 104 yards on 24 carries.
The Tigers have also dominated this rivalry over the years. In fact, LSU is 8-2 in its last 10 meetings against Texas A&M. In addition, the Tigers have covered the spread in each of their last nine games against the Aggies.
