The no. 22 Texas A&M Aggies visit Shreveport on Saturday night to take on the no. 23 Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. The nonconference game will be broadcast on ESPNU, with kickoff to come at 8:17 p.m. CT. Radio coverage will be on KXKZ 107.5 out of Ruston, La. and on WTAW 1620 AM.
The Aggies (4-1, 2-0 SEC) are favored by a touchdown on most books. The Bulldogs (5-0, 1-0 WAC) have knocked off Illinois, Virginia and Houston on the road this year, and have scored less than 50 points only once, while keeping opponents under 30 points only one time. The over-under on most books is hovering around 80. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is averaging 356 yards in total offense a game, sixth in the nation, and will go up against a defense yielding 531 yards per game.
The two teams were scheduled to play on Aug. 30 in the season opener for both, but was postponed because of Hurricane Isaac.
