Aggies win by double digits

Robert Ford

This is the game where new head coach Jimbo Fisher shows why he’s worth every penny the Aggies are paying him. Ags win 27-14.

My Thoughts

Yes, it’s true, this (and Alabama eventually) is the game Fisher was brought in to win. He was paid a boatload of money thanks to his national championship pedigree, and that starts with beating teams that have had the Aggies’ number over the past couple of years.

They already lost to Mississippi State, who’ve now won four of the past five matchups. Beating LSU would at least salvage the idea that things are changing within the Texas A&M program. Fisher already has the 2019 recruiting class among the best in the country, but finishing the season 8-5 or 7-6 isn’t any better than Kevin Sumlin‘s efforts.

If they are able to beat LSU and win their bowl game, 9-4 would feel like progress. It would feel like there is hope for contending in the future. It wouldn’t be like it used to be.

This is a statement game, and the Aggies are well prepared to make one.
