COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Sixth-ranked LSU and No. 20 Texas A&M don't have a lot in common.
The Tigers (6-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) are known for their tremendous defense and the Aggies (5-1, 2-1) succeed with a prolific offense.
They do share one thing this season: They have both lost to No. 3 Florida.
When the teams meet on Saturday, they'll be out to prove they deserve to be talked about among the nation's best teams despite their losses to the Gators. A win will help keep pace with No. 1 Alabama and 15th-ranked Mississippi State in the SEC West.
LSU linebacker Kevin Minter says losing to Florida was difficult, but it has given the team momentum to finish the season strong.
