With a 42-point blowout win over a hapless Auburn team, the Texas A&M Aggies earned their third Southeastern Conference victory of the season on Saturday to move back above .500 in league play.
In a strong bounce-back effort after their frustrating 24-19 loss to LSU the previous week, the Aggies stormed out to a massive 42-0 lead after just two quarters of action against Auburn's woeful defense. Along with totaling 319 passing yards as a team, Texas A&M's stable of runners had little trouble churning out an eye-popping 352 yards on the ground in the blowout win.
Eager to get back to work after their bye week, Les Miles' Tigers will prepare to face the ultimate litmus test this Saturday with Alabama set visit Baton Rouge. A win over the No. 1 team in college football would not only give the Tigers an edge in the SEC West, but it could throw a serious wrench into the national title picture with slightly more than one month left in the regular season.
Here are the full SEC standings through nine weeks:
|SEC - East||W-L||PF||PA||W-L||PF||PA||STRK|
