Both of these teams have taken care of business against overmatched opponents but struggled against teams of similar talent. The difference is that Auburn was able to pull out the victory over Cal while Texas A&M lost to Miami.
The Texas A&M offense looks improved with the addition of offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino but the defense was exposed in their game against Miami. Payton Thorne had his best passing game of the season last week and he will look to keep it going against a suspect Texas A&M secondary.
Auburn’s defense will be able to slow down the Texas A&M offense and some timely turnovers will allow Auburn’s offense to do just enough to pick up the win Saturday in College Station.
Prediction: Auburn 23, Texas A&M 20
