BATON ROUGE, La. - Jayden Daniels passed for four touchdowns and accounted for 355 yards of total offense against one of the nation's top defenses, and No. 14 LSU beat Texas A&M 42-30.

Daniels completed 16 of 24 passes for 235 yards and ran 11 times for 120 yards - a fine day by most quarterbacks' standards but somewhat short of the Heisman Trophy candidate's usual production this season.

Time will tell if he did enough to win over Heisman voters, who will get an additional look at two other top candidates - Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. and Oregon QB Bo Nix - when their teams meet in the Pac-12 title game.

Malik Nabers caught six passes for 122 yards and two TDs for LSU (9-3, 6-2 SEC). In the process, he became LSU’s career record holder in receptions with 186, eclipsing Wendell Davis' mark of 183.

The Aggies (7-5, 4-4) were within one score after Jaylen Henderson found tight end Max Wright for a 51-yard touchdown that trimmed LSU’s lead to 35-30 with 7:20 left.

But Daniels quickly directed LSU back downfield with a 45-yard completion to Nabers that might have been a 75-yard TD if not for a holding call on Kyren Lacy at the A&M 30. Still, Daniels got the Tigers in the end zone with his 15-yard strike to Lacy for the final margin.

Daniels' biggest play with his feet was a 49-yard scramble on fourth-and-4 to set up Josh Williams' short TD run, cutting A&M's lead to 24-21 in the third quarter.
