Almost since the last second ticked off the clock against Arkansas, LSU players and coach Ed Orgeron have been anxious to get to the Texas A&M game to deliver revenge to the Aggies following their seven overtime loss at Texas A&M last year.

Orgeron was asked if there would be high emotion for the game.

“No question,” Orgeron said Saturday night. “There’s no question about that. It’s gonna be on.”

Several players said the team and fan base is ready to make up for the loss, and will be especially motivated. QB Joe Burrow, for example, had a healthy smirk when he said he was “excited” for Saturday.

Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond has heard at least some of this, and is not surprised.

“You know I kinda figured them to talk a little bit,” Mond said. “But we can only control what we can control. Just kind of what I say every week. We’ve got to have a good week of practice and got to find out what we did wrong this week, and find out what corrections we can make to hopefully get better against LSU.”
