Paul Finebaum isn't one to hold back his true feelings, and on Saturday morning he unleashed an interesting take on the Auburn-Texas A&M game.

Auburn hasn't lost yet this season, but that could change this weekend. Defeating Texas A&M in College Station with a true freshman at quarterback is an extremely tough task.

Texas A&M owns a 2-1 record this season with the one loss coming to the hands of Clemson. It's an acceptable loss for a program that should be ranked throughout the fall.

Finebaum believes the Aggies will get the chance to redeem themselves in the coming hours against the No. 8 ranked team in the country.

When giving his prediction for the game on SEC Nation, Finebaum said "I like the Aggies because their back is against the wall."

He also said that Bo Nix will struggle in a hostile environment. This will be the first road test for the five-star quarterback.

Finebaum went as far as to say it'll be a "baptism by fire" for Nix this afternoon.

Through three games this season, Nix has 545 passing yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. It's important that he avoids turning over the football against the Aggies.

With Kellen Mond ready for this SEC showdown, it'll be fun to see how Nix responds to the challenge.
