The Aggies will try to rebound from their loss to LSU when they head to the Plains for the first time to take on the Tigers of Auburn on Saturday night.
The Texas A&M Aggies suffered a heartbreaker against the LSU Tigers last Saturday, but will contend with a very different Tigers team when they visit Auburn on Saturday night.
It will be the Aggies' (5-2, 2-2 in the SEC) first trip to the Plains as a member of the SEC, as they will take on a Tigers team with one of the worst offenses in the nation; Auburn (1-6, 0-5 in the SEC) averages 15.7 points per game, which ranks 121st in the country.
While Auburn averages 276.7 yards of offense per game, Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel is averaging 379.9 yards of total offense himself, as the dynamic signal-caller has both thrown and rushed for a touchdown in all but two games this season, but of which were Aggies losses.
Texas A&M will be seeking to recover from their 24-19 loss to LSU at home after holding a 12-0 lead in the second quarter.
The Aggies entered the week as 8½-point favorites, according to OddsShark, but the line has since grown in Texas A&M's favor to a full 15 points.
Game time is scheduled for 6 p.m. CT at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and the game will be televised on ESPNU and WatchESPN.
