Alabama, Georgia and LSU are the three highest-ranked teams in the SEC. But Auburn is not far behind at No. 8. The Tigers have a lot to prove with their true freshman quarterback Bo Nix. They'll have a chance to do so on Saturday against No. 17 Texas A&M.
Auburn started the year with a bang, knocking off Oregon with a late score. The legend of Bo Nix began that night. Following the thrilling season opener, the Tigers have played well, albeit against inferior competition. Now, they turn their attention to the Aggies in what will be their first true road test this season.
Texas A&M is looking for its first signature win of the season. The Aggies lost a hard-fought 24-10 battle to No. 1 Clemson in week two. They passed the eye test in weeks one and three with wins over Texas State and Lamar. But Texas A&M is wanting to prove it's among the elite of college football. A win over Auburn would help support that claim.
Here's the details for Saturday's contest:
Game Time: 3:30 PM ET
Spread: Texas A&M -3.5
Announcers: Carter Blackburn, Rick Neuheisel, Aaron Murray, John Schriffen
It's expected to be a close game on Saturday. Will Nix and the Tigers pull off another unexpected victory? Or will the Aggies — backed by their home crowd — get their first big win of the year?
The game kicks off at 3:30 PM ET on CBS.
