Challenges for Auburn

Auburn’s season is pretty much shot but Texas A&M provides an opportunity for the Tigers to inject some positiveness into the Auburn program. Devon Achane should be a primary focus of the Auburn defense. Achane, a running back, currently is sixth nationally in all-purpose yards with 1,395. That number includes 312 yards on kickoff returns, 196 yards receiving, and 887 yards rushing. Auburn must account for Achane at all times during the game.

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