A victory against Texas A&M very important for Tigers

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Saturday's game in Tiger Stadium between LSU (7-3) and Texas A&M (8-2) is shaping up to be an important game for several reasons.

One reason is there will be a number of recruits watching the game that might very well be swayed by the outcome.

Another is a loss a week before Thanksgiving and the Arkansas season finale might very well lead to a sparse Black Friday crowd.

And finally, LSU needs a victory to claim a spot in a meaningful bowl game.

Where will the Tigers go? Will LSU play Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Nebraska or Duke? Did we just say Duke?

Here's a sample of the good, that bad and the ugly answer to the question, where will LSU go bowling?:

    Blake Sims was good enough to finish his first start at quarterback for Alabama, getting plenty of help from Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry, and the second-ranked Crimson Tide held off West Virginia...
    Blake Sims took a seat on the bench next to Jake Coker after leading Alabama to a score and the two chatted for a few minutes before it was time for the offense to go back on the field.
