No. 8 Auburn jumped out in the front of No. 17 Texas A&M early and never looked back, pulling away for a 28-20 win in College Station in that which was clearly one of the most important conference results of the early SEC year old.
The Tigers defensive front set the tone for the match, establishing dominance in the trenches and keeping the Aggies out from their endzone for the first few quarters of the match. Texas had about three good scoring opportunities in that elongate and every time they were left settling for field goal attempts, connecting once.
Gus Malzahn did not place a lot on Bo Nix’s plateusing Joey Gatewood for packages that comprised among the four touchdowns of Auburn. Nix completed 12-of-20 moves for just 100 yards and added 38 rushing yards, but he also kept drives and plays alive and, most importantly, cared for the ball and averted Texas A&M from becoming any easy opportunities off miscues.
Texas A&M enabled Auburn to score its first possession using a 57-yard streak simply as a communication difficulty with the defense, as shown by a study from the CBS broadcast. Subsequently at the onset of second halfof an Isaiah Spiller run-on the Aggies first play from scrimmage was punched outside for among three fumbles (although only 1 lost).
Texas A&M’s mistakes and the rate with this match got out of hands will show a great deal of the eye back to Jimbo Fisher along with the hopes for 20-19. Because they play a few of the toughest programs in the country getting in to the summer season no body selected Texas A&M like a potential dark horse in the SEC West. But this is an app which, with its own investment in Fisher, has announced its intent to compete for championships. This was a legitimate tossup match against a division opponent in a season where every win will probably be huge because of its last count because of its own schedule, and Texas A&M did not show up with its very best football. That is clearly a large disappointment for people in College Station, as Auburn improved to 4-0 overall while the Aggies dropped to 2-2 at the quarter pole of their normal season.
