COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- LSU ran, ran and ran some more and survived some missed field goals to hang on to a narrow 23-17 Thanksgiving night win over Texas A&M on Saturday at Kyle Field.

A look at what transpired: How the game was won: LSU ran the ball at will to the tune of 384 yards and had two players who passed the century mark (Leonard Fournette and quarterback Anthony Jennings).
We just wanted to take the time to wish all of our loyal readers a very Happy Thanksgiving! Indulge and give thanks for all the good things in your life.
