ATLANTA — That past-moment Jaray Jenkins landing capture to beat Texas A&M on Nov. 27 may perhaps send the LSU Tigers all the way to Texas for their postseason reward.
Indications in and close to Saturday’s Southeastern Convention championship sport were being that LSU is most likely headed to engage in in the Texas Bowl on Jan. 4 at NRG Stadium in Houston. Other opportunities for the Tigers provided the Armed Forces Bowl, Dec. 22 in Fort Worth, Texas or the Initially Responder Bowl, Dec. 28 in College Park, Texas.
Bowl bids will be announced Sunday afternoon immediately after the College or university Football Playoff pairings, which will be unveiled at 11 a.m. on ESPN.
