COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (WIAT) — No. 8 Auburn and no. 17 Texas A&M are facing off in big SEC play.

It’s far too early in the season to be throwing around terms like “elimination game,” but the Tigers and Aggies are both talented enough to play disruptor and beat anyone in the division on a given Saturday.

Prior to last season’s thrilling 28-24 Auburn win at Jordan-Hare Stadium, the visiting team had won every matchup in the series since Texas A&M joined the SEC in 2012.

Texas A&M is looking to ruin Auburn’s undefeated record against them. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. CT at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.
