    How does A&M's O-line compare with LSU's O-line?

    I feel like this is what the next game comes down to. If you feel qualified to answer please speak to this topic.

    Will we be able to rush and get to their QB better than we did LSU?

    We should be able to use CJ more in this game I would think.

    They have a very good offensive line. They're probably up there with Tennessee in terms of teams we've played. I'd argue that they are better overall than Tennessee's line in terms of pass and run blocking but Tennessee's was probably the best pure protection unit we'll see in SEC play.

    My understanding is they have two very good tackles. Not sure about the middle of the line.

    Their tackles are at least as good as ours. Their center will be in for a long day.

    Both of their tackles are projected first round picks if they were to leave early for the NFL Draft. Jake Matthews and Luke Joeckel. They're juniors. Not sure if they're as physical overall as LSU but they are very talented and are right up there with Tennessee. I think they returned all five starters from a year ago.

    Yes, they are experienced and the tackles are very good, maybe weaker in the center. But they are doing something different from Tennessee and LSU. They don't have to hold up endlessly while their qb stands around like a phone pole in the pocket. They expect and even want their qb to be on the run and try to create plays that way. I don't expect us to go after him like we did ZM. Flushing him out of the pocket may create trouble. More like the plan for LSU in January or against Michigan this year, maybe even with someone acting as a "spy" on him. We wouldn't mind blindsiding him a time or two, of course, but if we get our rushers behind him, he'll make us pay with his legs. JW and BI need to consistently command a double team. JMHO, obviously.

    They have more experience on their OL than LSU and 2 very talented OT. However, our gameplan will be drastically different than LSU as far as pressure. I highly doubt we blitz a lot (1) because we were not effective against LSU with it and it left us in a bad spot with our DB's and (2) JM can move around better than ZM, and we don't want to over-run our pressure and let him escape. I'd fully expect us to employ the strategy we had for DR, Tebow, and Cam.

    I think their line is better. Of course, I think LSU's line played their best game of the year by far. We must play better, and we sure as heck can't allow them to possess the ball twice as long as we do like LSU did.

    I would say that the Aggie OL is better, because of the losses in LSU's line to injury.
