- Auburn is 4-3 against Texas A&M in their last seven matchups.

COLLEGE STATION, Tx – The No. 17 ranked Texas A&M Aggies (2-1) host the No. 8 ranked Auburn Tigers (3-0) in front of their home crowd on Saturday.
The game will be the SEC season opener for both teams, as they look to keep alive their college football playoff hopes. Auburn enters the game on a four-game win streak and is still undefeated on the season, so they still have a lot to play for.
On the other hand, the Aggies recovered nicely from their dismal performance against the reigning national champion Clemson Tigers with a 62-3 victory over Lamar University. However, the Auburn Tigers won’t be such an easy opponent.
In this game, the Texas A&M Aggies (-3.5) are favored to top the Auburn Tigers at top US sportsbooks. For those looking to bet on the game without the spread, the money line favors Texas A&M (-175) over Auburn (+155).
If you’re leaning Auburn, know that they’re 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games. With two of the better defenses in the SEC clashing here, the O/U is set at 47.5 points.
The under is the recommendation, as the total has gone under in seven of Auburn's last 10 games against an opponent in the SEC.
This game should be a classic battle of SEC teams and is one of the few Top 25 matchups this weekend.

The Aggies have been led junior quarterback Kellen Mond, as he’s thrown for 747 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions through three games. With starting running back sophomore Jashaun Corbin out for the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury, freshman Isaiah Spiller has stepped in. Spiller has run well since taking over as the starter, but this Auburn defense will be the best defense he’s seen so far this season.
The Aggies are playing at home and have won their last eight games in College Station. This game will depend on whether Spiller can find holes against the 34th ranked Auburn Tiger rush defense.
The Auburn Tigers have had a stellar season thus far, as they squeaked by Oregon in their season opener. Since that game, freshman quarterback Bo Nix has not thrown an interception.
On the season, Nix has thrown for 545 yards, four touchdowns, and has added in 79 rushing yards as well. Nix has outplayed his freshman status thus far this season, and that will have to continue if the Tigers are to stay undefeated.
The Auburn rushing offense is ranked eleventh in the country averaging 281.7 rushing yards per game. A win here would be nice for Auburn, but they still have games against Florida, LSU, Georgia, and Alabama remaining on their schedule.
Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. EST at Kyle Field and will be broadcasted on CBS.
