HOUSE DIVIDED: Sibling’s who graduated from Texas A&M and LSU

Local News

The highly anticipated LSU vs Texas A&M game is set for Saturday evening, and we’ve found a Baton Rouge home struggling to find common ground.

Every year when the Tigers and Aggie’s go head-to-head the Woodard family takes the rivalry to new heights.

“We like to have the competition, it makes it more fun,” Sarah Carson-Woodard said.

Mark Woodard, Sarah’s brother, graduated from LSU and Sarah graduated from Texas A&M.

This year the Woodard’s spent Thanksgiving in Baton Rouge. Before heading back home to Texas, Mark had something up his sleeve.

“I had on my Aggie jersey and my brother made me change,” Carson-Woodard said.

Their father Donald Woodard says even though his children are rooting for different teams it brings everyone together.

“We’re kind of a multi-team family but on top I guess I’m a tiger fan,” Woodard said.

Last year the Tigers fell short to the Aggie’s after seven overtimes. Carson-Woodard says she thinks something similar will happen this year.

“I am definitely rooting for the Aggie’s tomorrow,” Carson-Woodard said.

Her brother says he thinks the tigers will take home the win, making them 12 and 0.

The game will take place Saturday night at 6.
