The Texas A&M Aggies (8-2) make their first trip to Tiger Stadium since 1994 when they take on the LSU Tigers (7-3) in a game that figures to turn into a shootout considering the state of the Aggies defense and the challenges LSU will have in defending Johnny Manziel and company.

This is the first home game LSU has had since they defeated Furman on Oct. 26, so the home crowd will be out in full force for the first home SEC game since the Florida Gators were in town on Oct. 12. If you’re at the game check out this schedule of activities so you can be at the center of all the action.
Broadcast crew: Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson and Tracy Wolfson
Weather: 57 degrees and cloudy with a 20 percent chance of rain. Full forecast
LSU: No major injuries according to USA Today
A&M: RB Tra Carson is probable with a head/neck injury and LB Kody Johnson is questionable with a knee.
Notes: LSU is 22-1 under Les Miles following a loss and 5-3 after an open week.
Odell Beckham, Jr. is 31 yards shy of breaking Dominique Davis’ single-season record for all-purpose yards (2,121).
Jeremy Hill is 36 yards shy of becoming LSU’s first 1,000-yard rusher since Stevan Ridley achieved the milestone in 2010.
Manziel joins Florida’s Tim Tebow & Alabama’s Mark Ingram as the only players to play in Tiger Stadium after winning the Heisman Trophy.
Quotable: “This is the kind of game that you come to LSU to play in,” Miles said. “You look forward to playing nationally ranked teams and the opportunity to play best in front of your friends and family in Tiger Stadium.”
Quotable Part II: Miles on Manziel: “If there’s a better player in college football, I’d like to know who he is.”
Prediction: The defense that can make the most plays should win on Saturday and the Tigers have the better defense and were able to shut down Manziel in last year’s win. This will be a shootout, however and the team that has the ball could be the winner. I like the home team to come away victorious behind a big game from Jeremy Hill. LSU wins 42-38.
