COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M's clash with LSU on Saturday at Kyle Field is important for several reasons.

When the No. 6 Tigers come to town, it won't just be the SEC standings that are affected. Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin also believes the game carries heft in the recruiting world.

"It's important for both teams [from a recruiting standpoint]," Sumlin said. "LSU's over here [in Texas] pretty heavy too. I think us moving to the SEC really helps us because of our effort to expand our footprint east. Because of the proximity to Louisiana and the two schools, obviously there's going to be some guys that both of us are extremely interested in."
