Texas A&M Aggies College Football Betting
The Jimbo Fisher experiment has become an utter and embarrassing failure for the Texas A&M Aggies. And there were warning signs that it could turn out this way. In 2017 Fisher was the head coach of the Florida State Seminoles. And while Fisher led FSU to the 2013 national championship, there was a falling out shortly after that triumph. Fisher was public about his dissatisfaction with the Florida State investment in facilities and football staffing. And Fisher’s program started to erode. Soon the coach began mailing it in. And with one game left in the 2017 campaign, Fisher cut and ran out on his team to take the Texas A&M job. A&M hailed Fisher as a program savior. It’s not turning out that way.

Texas A&M Aggies Weekly Recap
Last game, the Texas A&M Aggies won 38-23 against the LSU Tigers as 10-point home dogs. The game went over the total of 47.5. Texas A&M has a record of 5-7 straight up, 4-7-1 against the spread, and 5-7 over/under the total. Texas A&M ranks 93rd for total offense, 82nd for passing, 82nd for rushing, and 101st for scoring. Defensively they rank 53rd overall, 2nd against the pass, 124th against the rush, and 30th for points allowed. Also, Texas A&M ranks 126th for fewest turnovers lost and 130th for takeaways.
Devon Achane had a career-best 215 yards rushing with two touchdowns, and Texas A&M stunned LSU, all but certainly knocking the Tigers out of contention for the CFP.
Conner Weigman threw two TD passes for the Aggies, and Demani Richardson returned a fumble for a score. The game was tied at 17-all in the third quarter before A&M scored 21 straight points.
LSU had already won the SEC West and secured a chance to play for the conference title against unbeaten No. 1 Georgia, and a win there could have put the Tigers in the playoff. But with three losses, even beating the Bulldogs likely won't be enough.
The Aggies, who opened the season ranked No. 6 but won't qualify for a bowl game for the first time since 2008, had a strong finish to their disappointing season. They won consecutive games for the first time since September after snapping a six-game skid with a victory over UMass last week. Achane ran for 119 yards and a score before halftime to help A&M to a 17-10 lead.
LSU opened the second half with a nine-play, 71-yard drive, capped by a 19-yard run by John Emery Jr. to tie it at 17-17. But Edgerrin Cooper hit Jayden Daniels and forced him to fumble on LSU's next drive. Richardson scooped it up and dashed 37 yards for his second touchdown this season to put A&M on top 24-17 with about seven minutes left in the third quarter.
The Aggies extended the lead to 31-17 on the first play of the fourth quarter when Moose Muhammad reeled in a 21-yard TD catch with one hand.
A 10-yard run by Achane, who returned after missing two games with a foot injury, made it 38-17 with about eight minutes to go.
Daniels threw for 189 yards and ran for 84 more, and Emery had three touchdowns for the Tigers, who lost their first game since they fell 40-13 at home to Tennessee on Oct. 8. Emery cut the lead to 38-23 with a 3-yard run with about 6 1/2 minutes to go, but the 2-point conversion failed.
Daniels nearly connected with Jaray Jenkins in the end zone on fourth down on LSU's next possession, but Tyreek Chappell knocked the ball out of Jenkins' hands. The Aggies then ran out the clock.
