LSU and Texas A&M will play at 11 a.m. Saturday at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, the Southeastern Conference has announced.

LSU (6-1, 2-1 SEC) makes its first trip to Kyle Field since 1995. The Aggies improved to improved to 5-1 overall with a wild 59-57 victory over Louisiana Tech in Shreveport — a game that didn’t end until early Sunday morning.
The 11 a.m. start is LSU’s earliest on the road since facing Tulane at 11 a.m. on Sept. 29, 2007, inside the Superdome. A year later, LSU hosted Appalachian State at 10 a.m. in a game that was moved up because of Hurricane Gustav.
