In a game that was simultaneously a testament to a growing rivalry, and a clear statement to the college football playoff committee, LSU Football closed out the regular season with a perfect 12-0 record by beating Texas A&M 50-7.

Following last year’s 7-overtime 74-72 loss in College Station, LSU let it be known early that there would be no repeat performance. LSU jumped out to a 21-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Then tacked ten more on in the second quarter for a 31-0 halftime lead.

The second half was less about the score, and more about broken records. Joe Burrow eclipsed the SEC single season passing yardage record.

Burrow also tied the SEC single season touchdown record.


And oh by the way, Freshman Kicker Cade York became the first Tiger to connect for 2 50-plus yard field goals in the same game.

Once it was all said and done, LSU walked away with a 50-7 win over the Aggies. The Tigers will play against Georgia in the SEC Championship game, December 7th in the Georgia Dome.
