For the first time since 1994, Texas A&M will travel to Baton Rouge, La., to face LSU in Death Valley on Saturday.
The showdown will mark the Aggies' first meeting with LSU as a fellow conference member and will continue a rivalry that was established in 1899.
Texas A&M (8-2, 4-2 SEC) enters the matchup ranked No. 12 in the nation. A win would keep the Aggies' BCS bowl hopes alive as they eye their season finale on the road against No. 8 Missouri on Thanksgiving weekend.
The historical and rivalry implications for this weekend's matchup are strong as well, as A&M looks to close the gap on an eight-game lead LSU holds between the two programs at 28-20-3.
For No. 22 LSU (7-3, 3-3 SEC), its ranking would stand to improve dramatically with a victory over the Aggies and would allow for a stronger bowl bid. With losses to Alabama, Georgia and Ole Miss, though, the Tigers sit on the outside looking in and have no maneuvering room left.
Time: 3:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 23
Location: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, La.
Radio: Texas A&M Sports Network
