There's no better way to end the regular season than with Rivalry Week. On Saturday, the LSU Tigers will try to keep their perfect season alive when they host the Texas A&M Aggies.

Last year, the Aggies defeated the Tigers but it took seven overtimes for it to happen. Kellen Mond and Joe Burrow were matching score for score in arguably the most thrilling game from 2018.

This time around it'll be much different. LSU is on the verge of competing in the College Football Playoff, meanwhile Texas A&M is struggling to knock off ranked opponents.

ESPN analyst Bill Connelly made his predictions for all the top matchups on Rivalry Week, including the LSU-Texas A&M showdown.

Connelly has LSU winning 37-23 over Texas A&M.

Before the season even began, Connelly actually predicted a breakout season from Burrow.

From ESPN:

In August, I named Texas A&M's Kellen Mond the most important player in college football for the 2019 season, I said he and LSU's Joe Burrow (No. 2 on my list) had a "potential game-changing leap in them and a shot at lots of contenders." Granted, it would have been stupendous had I flipped the order there, but Mond and A&M have one more shot at an upset after having already played four of SP+'s top 11 teams. (They're 0-4 against the top teams, with two one-score losses, and 7-0 against everyone else.)

Kickoff for this game is at 7 p.m. ET from Tiger Stadium.

Do you think the Tigers will get revenge against the Aggies?
