College Football TV Schedule 2019: Where to Watch Texas A&M vs. LSU, TV Channel, Live Stream and Odds

Almost exactly 12 months on from one of the most riveting and incredible games in college football history the paths of LSU and Texas A&M cross again on Saturday.

A year ago, the Aggies defeated the Tigers 74-72 in College Station, Texas, after seven overtime periods and almost five hours of football.

LSU should have won the game in regulation and felt Texas A&M repeatedly got the rub of the green with marginal calls going the Aggies' way. Controversy didn't end with the final whistle, with a major scuffle breaking out between LSU director Kevin Faulk and Texas A&M staffer Cole Fisher—the nephew of Aggies' coach Jimbo Fisher.

In the ensuing melee, LSU cornerback John Battle landed a clean punch, before order was ultimately restored.

"It was a mess," Tigers coach Ed Orgeron said about the incident in his press conference earlier this week. "It shouldn't have happened and I'm sorry it did happen."

Revenge is in Orgeron's sight as the Tigers welcome the Aggies in Baton Rouge in Rivalry Week with the chance of finishing the regular season undefeated.

"It's going to be on," he added. "I'll never forget that game last year. We're going to be ready. There was nothing we could do about the end of that game, we felt helpless. But there is something we can do about it this week."

The Tigers improved to 11-0 after thrashing Arkansas 56-20 last week to clinch the SEC East title and a spot in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. However, as this graphic provided by Statista shows, they fell to No. 2 in the College Football Playoffs rankings with Ohio State reclaiming top spot after two weeks.

A win against Texas A&M would not only avenge last year's defeat and complete a perfect regular season, as it would consolidate LSU's chances of making the CFP.

According to the Allstate Playoff Predictor, the Tigers will have a 91.4 percent chance of securing a playoff spot if they beat the Aggies, but the figure would drop to 61 percent with a defeat.

LSU will again lean heavily on its high-octane offense, which ranks second nationwide in points scored and total offense.

The Tigers have scored 50 or more points five times this season, including in both of their last two games, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire emerging as his team's latest offensive weapon.

While LSU's rushing offense ranks outside the top-50, the junior running back ranks first in the SEC in touchdowns and rushing yards with 15 and 1,146 respectively.

Edwards-Helaire has rushed for 786 yards and 10 scores in the last six games alone and is determined to continue his form against the Aggies, after rushing for just three yards against them a year ago.

"We owe those guys a lot from last year," he was quoted as saying by Sports Illustrated. "The pain, everything that we felt last year sitting in that stadium. To understand that pain as a player, it doesn't get any worse than that."

The Aggies, meanwhile, travel to Baton Rouge on the back of a narrow road loss against No.4 Georgia, which saw them slip to 7-4 for the season.

Texas A&M has lost each of the three games it has played against ranked programs this season—the loss to the Bulldogs came after defeats against Auburn and Alabama—and a loss against LSU would see them finish 4-4 in SEC play for the fifth time in seven seasons.

While the Tigers have openly talked up getting revenge over Texas A&M for last year's controversial loss, Fisher opted to steer clear of controversy.

"It's based on them, I can't speak for them or how it affects them," the Aggies coach said in his press conference, as reported by the Houston Chronicle. "It may help them, or it may not. All I can worry about is us, and we're going to prepare like we always do."

Here's all you need to know ahead of Saturday.
