|Jefferson Rallies LSU to Cotton Win Over Aggies
|ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- With rumors swirling about LSU coach Les Miles' future, Jordan Jefferson threw three touchdown passes to Terrence Toliver and ran for a score to help the 11th-ranked Tigers rally for a 41-24 victory over No. 18 Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night.
Miles is likely a leading candidate for the coaching vacancy at Michigan, where he played and was an assistant coach.
In the days leading up to the Cotton Bowl, Miles said his focus was on his Tigers and that he enjoyed where he was.
But LSU (11-2) has now completed its fourth season with at least 11 wins in Miles' six years. The Tigers had only two 11-win seasons in their history before that.
Texas A&M (9-4) led 10-0 in the first quarter, including a field goal after Jefferson threw an interception, but had its six-game winning streak snapped.
