The LSU Tigers football team beat the Texas A&M Aggies 23-17 Thanksgiving night.  I know you already know that but the reason I bring it up is because the Tigers have returned back into the Top 25 of both national polls.

The Tigers who are 8-4 overall are now ranked #23 in the AP Poll and #24 in the USA Today Coaches Polls.

LSU will now have to wait for championship Saturday to occur this weekend before they see what bowl game they will be invited too.
