We already knew that A&M would have their hands full when they traveled to Baton Rouge to take on LSU on Nov. 30, and the TV schedule won’t do the Aggies any favors. If A&M wants to upset the Tigers for the second straight year, they’ll have to do so on Saturday night in Death Valley, as the game will kick off at 6 p.m. and air on ESPN.
A night game was the expected outcome here, with the Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn taking the top slot at 2:30 on CBS.
If you’re looking for a silver lining, the Aggies are undefeated in night games this season and 7-0 in night games over the past 12 months. But after last year’s 74-72 seven-overtime thriller, LSU players and fans alike should be amped up for this one, so don’t expect to catch the Tigers off guard. A&M’s only potential advantage might be that LSU will have likely already secured the SEC West title with a victory over Arkansas this Saturday.
