BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Les Miles says LSU might not get away with settling for field goals against a Texas A&M team coming off a 59-point performance.
After grinding out a high-stakes, 23-21 victory at home against previously unbeaten South Carolina last Saturday night, the sixth-ranked Tigers began preparations on Monday for a trip to College Station, Texas.
The game kicks off at 11 a.m., which could be the start of a long day for LSU's defense if it isn't sharp against quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Aggies' prolific offense.
The 20th-ranked Aggies have won five consecutive games since losing at home to No. 3 Florida in their season opener. In four of the five victories, Texas A&M scored at least 48 points. Last weekend, the Aggies won a 59-57 shootout against Louisiana Tech.
