Auburn Vs Texas Am

Auburn vs Texas A&M Picks

The Aggies looked dead in the water a month ago — they were 0-2 in the league and staring Alabama straight in the face.All they’ve done since this is upset the then-No.1 ranked Tide and rattle off three straight victories, many of those led by the defense. Outside of the Alabama game, Texas A&M held its opponents to 14 points or fewer in all five victories. Meanwhile, Auburn is 3-1 in the SEC, keeping pace just behind Alabama — and all they need is to be within striking distance during that Iron Bowl. In the end, the Aggies are hot, but the Tigers are more talented and we’re getting more than a field goal.

Tigers with the points +4.5 (-110)

Auburn vs Texas A&M Predictions

Are Bo Nix’s Road Woes Officially Behind Him?

For the majority of his career — at least the past two seasons when he had enough of a track record — Bo Nix has been electrifying and spectacular at times, but too often comes up short in the toughest of road games.

Well, in his last two road starts, Nix has wins against LSU in Death Valley and then against an Arkansas team that was once ranked in the top 10 this season.

In those games, Nix combined to go 44-of-70 passing for 547 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and added another 17 rushes for 116 yards and two more scores on the ground.

That said, he’s still yet to dominate a road game. In 15 tries he’s thrown for more than two touchdowns or more than 300 yards just once. That said, what’s been most important is he’s 2-0 in the last two tries. With Auburn (6-2, 3-1 SEC) fully in the thick of SEC race, this is another chance for Nix to make a statement.

But he’s going to have to do so against a rested, yet still hot Texas A&M team.

Can Aggies Rushing Attack Be Slowed?

Texas A&M dominated an SEC game just about as much as one can in its last time out, hammering South Carolina 44-14 (though they got up 44-0 before they called off the dogs). The reason this offense is so dynamic is because it has two running backs who are capable of changing the game in an instant.

Junior Isaiah Spiller has been great, having rushed 123 times for 761 yards (6.2 yards per carry) and five touchdowns and has rushed for 100 yards or more and a score in three straight contests.

That’s not to mention Devon Achane, who has 608 rushing yards, five touchdowns and is averaging better than seven yards per carry on the season. Achance, a sophomore from Missouri City, TX has come into his own lately, putting up 278 yards and three touchdowns in his past two games.

Meanwhile, Auburn’s defense has looked pretty good lately, slowing a dynamic Ole Miss attack to 20 points in its third straight game against a ranked opponent.

X-factors to Watch

For Auburn, running back Tank Bigsby, who’s tallied 666 yards and seven scores so far this year might seem like the answer for Auburn, but we’re actually looking for a wide receiver to open things up over the top.

That is where Demetrius Robertson comes in. The senior from Savannah caught a 71-yard touchdown pass against Arkansas, showing he can hit a home run at any time. THe Aggies have to be careful with him.

On the flip side, it’s Jalen Wydermyer who is the game-changer on the outside. He had two scores and a season-high 75 receiving yards last week — his second time with more than 70 receiving yards in the past three weeks. If he catches a deep ball for a score, A&M is likely in good shape.
