The Tigers are riding a wave of confidence that only a strong start to the season could have brought them. Their first game ended in glorious fashion, with a comeback over Oregon. Victories over Tulane and Kent State then followed.
JaTarvious Whitlow is one of the players to watch after his two touchdowns against Kent State. Also, watch out for the team’s QB Bo Nix. The player was integral to his team’s comeback against Oregon. A&M’s defense will need to focus on derailing his passes if they are to have a chance against the Tigers.
Auburn start as favorites against Texas and there is a touch of old time rivalry to go along with the contest. Historically, Texas lead the Tigers 5-4 in direct matches. However, Auburn are closing the gap fast, having won their last two games against their rivals.

It hasn’t been the start of the season that Texas fans were expecting. Injuries and a considerable disappointment against Clemson still hang over the team. In spite of this, the Aggies’ main strengths look to rely on their strong defensive unit and on Kellen Mond.
Inconsistent in opening games, Mond, the Aggies’ QB is still the man that the Tigers will need to be looking to stop. Together with Isaiah Spiller, Mond looked unstoppable in last week’s game against Lamar, finishing with 317 passing yards. Spiller himself managed 116 yards and two touchdowns.
The string of injuries may have proven to be a blessing in disguise, with Texas forced to rotate. This gave a chance to players like Ainias Smith, who managed to make the first three catches of his career.
