Temperatures for the series finale in College Station, Texas, were in the low 40s and LSU's bats were just as cold in a 3-1 defeat to the Aggies. For the third straight season, Texas A&M has won a series over the Tigers.
LSU was held to five hits and scored its lone run in the 8th inning on a bloop single by Zach Watson. But that inning ended when Watson was caught stealing.
