LSU, Texas A&M similar in different ways

first_imgBATON ROUGE – Welcome to the Opposites Attract Bowl.In this corner wearing the purple and gold trunks, one of the worst offenses in the Southeastern Conference and nation – formerly ranked LSU (7-4, 3-4 SEC). But the Tigers also have one of the best defenses in the SEC and nation.And in this corner wearing the maroon and white, one of the worst defenses in the SEC and nation – formerly ranked Texas A&M (7-4, 3-4 SEC). But the Aggies also have one of the best offenses in the SEC and nation.Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. Thanksgiving night on ESPN in 106,000-seat Kyle Field.“We have similar records,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said.LSU, once ranked No. 8 in the nation in late September, is 0-for-November with two losses. Texas A&M, once ranked No. 7 in the nation in early October, went 0-for-October with three losses.“They want to end their year on a positive note just like we do and put yourself in a decent bowl scenario,” Sumlin said. “They’re in kind of a similar situation as us. Both of us have been playing a bunch of young guys. We’ve both had some solid wins and disappointing losses. Both teams have been a little inconsistent at times with young players on the field.”The two teams got to this exactly similar situation in diametrically opposed fashion:• LSU is 110th in the nation and last in the SEC in passing offense with 169 yards a game. … Texas A&M could help with that as it is 83rd in the nation and second to last in the SEC in pass defense with 236 yards allowed a game.• LSU is 83rd in the nation and 11th in the SEC in total offense with 372 yards a game. … Texas A&M could improve those numbers as it is 102nd in the nation and last in the SEC in total defense with 445 yards allowed a game.• LSU is 71st in the nation and 12th in the SEC in scoring with 28 points a game after scoring all of three touchdowns in its last three games. … That drought could end at Texas A&M as the Aggies are 73rd in the nation and 11th in the SEC in scoring defense with 27.7 a game, including 59 to Alabama on Oct. 18 and 34 to Missouri on Nov. 14 in losses. This is why Sumlin was asked about his “satisfaction level” with defensive coordinator Mark Snyder at a recent press conference.“We’ve had our ups and downs,” Sumlin said. “We tried to get the right people out there. We put new people in there. It’s something you have to evaluate week to week and evaluate at the end of the year.”LSU coach Les Miles, in turn, has been evaluating and reevaluating his offense for most of the season, particularly starting quarterback Anthony Jennings, who is 83rd in the nation and 13th in the SEC in passing efficiency with a 116.3 rating. Second-year offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has also come under fire.“I don’t know what’s going on there,” Miles said of his offense after the 17-0 loss at Arkansas on Nov. 22 in which his team was held to 123 yards – lowest for LSU since 1975. “We were uncharacteristically out of rhythm early, and I don’t know why. But it’s something we have to fix.”Miles is considering playing backup quarterback Brandon Harris, who is No. 1 in the SEC in passing efficiency at 175.0, but did not play well in his only start at Auburn on Oct. 4.LSU’s defense, on the other hand, continues to improve, but it has not played an offense the caliber of a Texas A&M since it gave up 570 yards in a 34-29 loss to Mississippi State on Sept. 20.The Tigers are No. 2 in the nation and No. 1 in the SEC in pass defense efficiency with a 97.6 rating based on a 49.4 completion percentage allowed and just eight touchdowns given up. And LSU is No. 6 in the nation and No. 1 in the SEC in fewest passing yards allowed at 164. … The Aggies, though, are No. 1 in the SEC and No. 10 in the nation in passing offense with 321 yards a game.Freshman quarterback Kyle Allen, who replaced starter Kenny Hill three games ago against Louisiana-Monroe after the Aggies lost to Alabama, 59-0, for its third straight setback, has hit 79 of 130 passes for 884 yards and 11 touchdowns with five interceptions for a 138.1 efficiency rating.LSU is No. 5 in the nation and No. 3 in the SEC in scoring defense with 16.4 points allowed a game. … But A&M is 22nd in the nation and third in the SEC with 36 points a game. The Tigers are also No. 12 in the nation and No. 4 in the SEC in total defense with 313 yards allowed a game. … The Aggies are No. 25 in the nation and No. 4 in the SEC in total offense with 469 yards a game.LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis has seen such lofty Aggie offensive numbers before and minimized them. The Tigers handled A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel as well as anyone in the nation in 2012 and ’13 in 24-19 and 34-10 victories, respectively.“They’ve been athletic,” Sumlin said. “They’ve had different people on the field and done a nice job. They’ve done a nice job this year. They have a scheme they believe in, and they’ve worked at it. John Chavis’ record stands for itself. He’s as good as it gets defensively in the country.”Sumlin is thought of likewise on offense.“A&M is a very explosive offense,” Miles said. “They throw the football well. They do a great job spreading the ball around.”Something has got to give, or give up. LSU at Texas A&M Game: 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Kyle Field.Records: LSU 7-4, 3-4; A&M 7-4, 3-4.TV: ESPN.Radio: 103.7 FM.last_img read more
