LSU to play A&M Thanksgiving night



Tiger fans are now going to have some LSU football to go with their Thanksgiving night.

"LSU's 2014 regular-season finale against Texas A&M on Thanksgiving in College Station will kickoff at 6:30 p.m.," LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette said in a news release.  "The Texas A&M contest will be the first for LSU on Thanksgiving Day since 1973."

The game will be heard on WWL Radio and will be televised on ESPN.

Bonnette says LSU is 5-4-3 all time in games played on Thanksgiving including a 7-7 tie against Texas A&M in Houston in 1913.  In 1973, the Tigers dropped a 21-7 decision to Alabama in Tiger Stadium.
 
LSU is 2-0 against the Aggies since they joined the Southeastern Conference in 2012, which includes a 34-10 victory last year in Tiger Stadium. LSU leads the overall series with Texas A&M 29-20-3.

Here is the LSU Schedule as we know it so far:
