The Texas A&M Aggies and the Auburn Tigers face off on Saturday at Kyle Field in a SEC college football matchup.
The Texas A&M Aggies are 6-2 this season as they set their sites on a slot in one of the better bowl games. The Texas A&M offense is averaging 32.1 points and 431.8 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 13 times. Kyler Murray got the start at QB last week for the Aggies and for the season he has completed 62.7 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Tre Carson leads the Texas A&M ground attack with 646 yards and five touchdowns and Christian Kirk has 47 catches and four touchdowns. The A&M defense is allowing 24.6 points and 398.2 yards per game with eight interceptions, five fumble recoveries, and 26 sacks. Armani Watts is Texas A&M’s top tackles with 75, Justin Evans has 55 tackles, and Myles Garrett has 10.5 sacks. Texas A&M hasn’t settled on a QB and it has left the offense with an unsettled look at times as well.

The Auburn Tigers are 4-4 this season but both of their last two losses have been hard fought close games. The Auburn offense is averaging 27.2 points and 371.1 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 10 times. Auburn QB Sean White has completed 59.2 percent of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. Peyton Barber leads the Tigers rushing attack with 787 yards and 12 touchdowns and Ricardo Louis leads in receptions with 36 and two touchdowns. The Auburn defense is allowing 29.4 points and 446.5 yards per game with eight interceptions, four fumble recoveries, and 12 sacks. Johnathan Ford is Auburn’s top tackler with 86, Kris Frost has 65 tackles and Casanova McKinzy has 53 tackles including four sacks. Auburn is having a rebuilding year after Gus Malzahn may be a recruiting class away from becoming a more consistent football team.
Texas A&M is 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 home games, 5-15 against the spread in their last 20 SEC games, and 4-10 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Auburn is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight SEC games, 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games, and 3-13 against the spread in their last 16 games.
Last year Texas A&M won outright as a 15 point underdog at Auburn and I wouldn’t be shocked if Auburn did the same right back at the Aggies this year.
