Jimbo Fisher recalls the 2018 meeting with LSU, how he feels about Aggies' Playoff ranking
The last time LSU and Texas A&M met at Kyle Field, it was a seven overtime affair where the Aggies prevailed.
“Two great teams that were competing,” Fisher said on the SEC coaches media teleconference on Wednesday. “Not topping each other but just responding. We made one more play than they did.”
Texas A&M received the No. 5 ranking on Tuesday night from the initial College Football Playoff ranking of teams.
“I saw it after practice, very happy for the team and our fans but we have to remember why we are there,” Fisher said. “Not focus on that… it’s a good place to be, you want to be in top 4 but we are relevant and we have to continue to take care of business.”
On the LSU defense, Fisher said the change from Dave Aranda to Bo Pelini at coordinator is not drastically different. It’s still a very talented group.
What areas have Texas A&M improved this season?
“The approach of understanding football,” he said. “You get into situation and it’s about how you deal with those situations… offensively, we aren’t giving up big plays… I think we are a much smarter football team… also not worrying about outcomes, each play takes care of itself.”
Fisher also reacted to Alabama coach Nick Saban testing positive for COVID-19.
“First of all, pray it all goes well and he has his health… hopefully it doesn’t get any worse on him. That’s the big thing with that,” he said.
