One year after one of the wildest college football games of all time, the LSU Tigers got their revenge on the Texas A&M Aggies, rolling to a 50-7 senior night victory to move to 12-0 on the season Saturday night.
For those unaware, last year’s game featured eight overtimes, a 74-72 final score, and a coach fight started by A&M following the game, so the Tigers have been looking forward to this one for a while.
And LSU sure didn’t disappoint their home fans, cruising to a blowout. The game was never remotely close, as the Tigers took a 31-0 lead into halftime behind two passing touchdowns from Joe Burrow and a rushing touchdown from Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Ty Davis-Price before Cade York added a field goal for good measure.
The second half was more of the same as LSU kept the pressure on in the second half to roll to the win for their first 12-0 regular season since 2011. They’ll face Georgia next week in the SEC Championship and then likely be in the College Football Playoff for the first time.
For Texas A&M, they finish the regular season at 7-5, a mark Kevin Sumlin matched or beat in all six of his seasons as head coach. He also did it for far less than $75 million. Obviously A&M won’t even consider moving on from Jimbo Fisher at this point, but this year certainly wasn’t a success by any definition of the word.
