Through 3 Quarters
Down four at the end of last quarter, the Auburn Tigers have now snagged the lead. After three quarters neither squad has the contest in the bag, but Auburn leads 20-14 over the Texas A&M Aggies.
QB Bo Nix has led the way so far for the Tigers, as he has accumulated 114 passing yards in addition to rushing for two TDs and 59 yards.
A&M has enjoyed the tag-team combination of QB Kellen Mond and RB Devon Achane. The former has passed for one TD and 100 yards on 16 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 34 yards, while the latter has picked up 99 yards on the ground on nine carries.
This is tied with the least points the Aggies have had yet this year going into the fourth quarter.
No. 5 Texas A&M @ Auburn

What to Know
The Auburn Tigers are 4-1 against the Texas A&M Aggies since November of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. Auburn and A&M will face off in an SEC battle at noon ET at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn is out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.
A victory for Auburn just wasn't in the stars last week as the squad never even grasped a temporary lead. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 42-13 punch to the gut against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Auburn was down 35-6 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. QB Bo Nix had a pretty forgettable game, throwing two interceptions.
The Aggies decided to play defense against itself last week, but the team still came out ahead despite their 107 penalty yards. They came out on top against the LSU Tigers by a score of 20-7. It was another big night for A&M's RB Isaiah Spiller, who rushed for one TD and 141 yards on 27 carries. That touchdown -- a 52-yard rush in the first quarter -- was one of the highlights of the matchup.
Auburn is expected to lose this next one by 5.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the team is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.
Texas A&M's win lifted them to 6-1 while Auburn's loss dropped them down to 5-3. We'll see if A&M's success rolls on or if Auburn is able to steal their positive momentum.
