A&M to make 1st trip to Death Valley since 1994
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - No. 9 Texas A&M and 18th-ranked LSU had a fierce rivalry when the schools met each year from 1986-1995.
The rivalry has been renewed now that they're both in the Southeastern Conference, though most of the players are too young to remember a time when their schools played annually. Quarterback Johnny Manziel wasn't yet 2 years old when the Aggies visited Death Valley in 1994.
The rivalry dates to 1899 and their longest stretch of yearly meetings came when they played annually from 1960-75.
LSU leads the series 28-20-3 and got a 24-19 win last season in College Station. The Aggies have won in their last two trips to LSU, but haven't had a win in the series since a victory at home in 1995.
