The Nov. 24 game at Kyle Field ended a wild night that featured the highest scoring game in Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) history. It also marked the first time Texas A&M has defeated LSU since joining the Southeastern Conference. In Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher’s first year, the Aggies went 9-4 in 2018, which included a 52-13 win over North Carolina State in the Gator Bowl on Dec. 31.
The ESPYs will be broadcast July 10 on ESPN starting at 8 p.m. from Los Angeles.
