Challenges for Texas A&M

Auburn presents a top-20 nationally defensive squad. While the Auburn offense isn’t a juggernaut as we’ve seen in past seasons, the Tigers seem to have been improving as the season has progressed. Jordan-Hare Stadium is gonna be rocking on Saturday with the Orange and Blue.

Challenges for Auburn

In A&M, the Tigers are facing a very tough opponent on both sides of the ball. The Aggie defense is holding opponents to just 89.3 rushing yards a game, best in the SEC. Meanwhile, the A&M offense is piling up an average of 462 yards a game. Auburn must be sound both offensively and defensively to win this game.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 11 am CT and can be seen on ESPN.
