A&M got better after they played LSU. Right now, I think you could make an argument that they are the best team in the country. They definitely have the best player. I'm not sure anybody could beat them right now. That said, when we played them our defense was lights out, and Chavis quickly made adjustments. He did not give them the opportunity to jump to a large lead. That's when they are deadly.
Because outside of the first quarter, we pretty much dominated them. A&M gained 175 yards and scored 9 points in the first quarter on three drives.
From that point on, A&M would only have two more good drives, and one of those started with 3:12 left in the game and the Aggies down by 12. A&M didn't turn their early advantage into points, and LSU dominated the rest of the game. Mainly because we had more talent, especially up front.
