Texas A&M revives an ancient rivalry with LSU in the AT&T Cotton Bowl on Friday night. For the second consecutive year, the game will be played in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, rather than the stadium for which the game is named. The match moves to prime time for the first time as well as part of an attempt to become a BCS bowl in the future.
WHO TO WATCH: Texas A&M running back Cyrus Gray. He’s been nothing short of outstanding over the second half of the season after his partner in the backfield, Christine Michael, broke his leg and ended his season. In the three games before the Aggies took on Kansas, Gray had a combined seven rushing yards. He finished the year with six consecutive 100-yard games. His 223-yard finale, in a win over rival Texas, brought him to 838 yards and 10 touchdowns in the Aggies’ final six games. Not surprisingly they were all wins, and included two top-10 opponents in Nebraska and Oklahoma. Gray’s emergence over the end of the year made the streak possible, and he’ll likely need another 100-yard day for the Aggies to knock off No. 11 LSU.
