College football preview: Louisiana-Lafayette at Texas A&M

Morning matchup: Aggies look to build on last week's narrow victory

Up next for the Aggies is a home game Saturday against Louisiana-Lafayette (1-1), their final tuneup before opening Southeastern Conference play on September 23 against Arkansas.

The Aggies put the game completely out of reach at the 6:41 mark of the final quarter, Jacob Kibodi scored on a long 67-yard touchdown run, to extend the margin to 45-21.

A loss here as an SEC team certainly won't help Kevin Sumlin's case to remain as the Texas A&M head coach.

It seems Texas A&M football hasn't had much of an answer for the Louisiana offense and it's showed.

Things aren't going so well in College Station. They rank sixteenth in the nation so far this season in rushing defense with only 68.5 yards allowed per game, and the improved play of the linebacking corps has had a lot to do with that success. Walk-on Colton Taylor of Memorial High is another option on Saturday, should Mond struggle as he did in the second half against Nicholls. And true freshman Anthony Hines tallied six tackles, with two of those coming behind the line of scrimmage.

"We're just trying to find the best combination of starting five that will produce the best right now", junior offensive lineman Conner Lanfear said. But it won't wash away a bad half from A&M, something the Aggies have experienced for roughly a third of the young season.

Texas A&M widened their advantage to 31-21 with:43 remaining in the third quarter, courtesy of a Daniel LaCamera 28-yard field goal, before Tyrel Dodson returned an interception 40 yards for a score at the 14:51 mark of the fourth quarter, to make it 38-21. In the last four years (which includes the last year of the Manziel era), the Aggies are 15-17 in conference play.
