Aggies ready for Death Valley

Posted: Updated:
College Station, TX -

Texas A&M last came to Baton Rouge in 1994 in a series that dates back to 1899, but the Aggies are about to make their first trip as a member of the SEC.  A&M's current players have heard a lot about Tiger Stadium and sound excited to see it all first hand.

All-American left tackle Jake Matthews says he knows it will be loud and likens the trip to what the Aggies experienced when they went to Tuscaloosa last year.  Of course, they hope it will end the same as A&M upset then unbeaten and #1 Alabama.  Quarterback Johnny Manziel told KTBS 3 Sports Director Paul Crane, "You always hear stories about how crazy and how daunting it is to go play there.  I guess we'll find out."

Wide receiver Mike Evans just hopes his team keeps its poise and he too points to last year's game at Alabama.  LSU fans know that Bryant-Denny is indeed one of the tough places to play in the SEC, but it is not Death Valley.  LSU will hope to make A&M's experience on this trip next Saturday much different than their first trip to Alabama.  Both teams will be coming off a bye week, so both should be at their best.
