Auburn at Texas A&M

TAMU enters the contest 2-1 overall after beating Texas State, losing to Clemson, and beating Lamar last weekend. In the 62-3 victory over Lamar, Isaiah Spiller filled in nicely after starting running back Jashaun Corbin suffered a season-ending hamstring injury. Spiller finished the game with 116 yards and two touchdowns.

Quarterback Kellen Mond was solid by throwing for 317 yards with a touchdown pass and a run in three quarters.

Mond has been inconsistent throughout his career with the Aggies. He has thrown at least one interception in 10 of his last 13 games and has made mistakes when pressured by opposing defenses.

TAMU's receivers are probably the best group Auburn has seen so far this season. Led by Jhamon Ausbon's 17 catches for 253 yards, the Tigers will face a deep group of passing targets.

After three games, TAMU's offense averages 37.7 points per game, 292.7 passing yards per game and 174 rushing yards per game.

Defensively, the Aggies are led by Buddy Johnson's 14 tackles. The group allows 11.3 points per game and defensive tackle is a position of strength.

Auburn improved to 3-0 after handling Kent State 55-16 at home. Freshman quarterback Bo Nix was 12-of-16 for 166 yards. He threw one touchdown pass and had one rushing touchdown.

The Tigers' rushing attack performed well against Kent State racking up 467 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Boobee Whitlow finished with 135 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries.

Auburn's receivers had a solid night with Eli Stove hauling in six catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. Seth Williams sat out but should see the field against TAMU.

Overall, Auburn's offense averages 35.3 points per game, 183.3 passing yards per game, and 281.7 rushing yards per game.

On defense, Kent State gained just 92 rushing yards on 32 attempts. The defensive line had five sacks, including 2.5 by Marlon Davidson, 1.5 by Tyrone Truesdell and 0.5 by Big Kat Bryant.
