Challenges for Texas A&M

Texas A&M looks to rebound after losing a game with Florida by 17 points. Auburn is an opponent that presents the Aggies with an opportunity for success. To stop Auburn you have to stop running back Tank Bigsby. So far this season Bigsby has 123 rushes for 676 yards and eight touchdowns. In the recent overtime loss to Mississippi State, Bigsby gained 89 yards for a touchdown. The talented back can also catch the ball with 22 receptions for 143 yards. A&M has got to keep Bigsby from having a great game.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
