No. 24 Texas A&M (15-3, 3-2 SEC) will be in Auburn Arena on Thursday to take on the Tigers, marking Auburn’s third straight home game against a Top 25 opponent.
Auburn comes into this game after its 20-point comeback win over Vanderbilt, which is the largest comeback in the SEC since 2003. The Tigers look to ride that momentum and earn their first win in program history against the Aggies, as well as their first win against a top-25 team since 2016 when they defeated No. 16 Florida, 80-58.
A&M enters this matchup undefeated in its previous 11 meetings with the Tigers, and with SEC leading-scorer Chennedy Carter (21.2 points per game) and a current three-game win streak, the Aggies look to make the tally 12-0.
The Tigers are looking for the upset as Texas A&M is also undefeated in Auburn Arena at 3-0.
The stats and history are stacked against them, but the Tigers look to ignite a spark as this game is the first of two games against a Top 25 team. Auburn will travel to Columbia, Missouri, on Sunday to face No. 25 Missouri.
Auburn is also offering a free Auburn tumbler to the first 500 fans in the arena for the “We Back Pat” Game against Texas A&M. The “We Back Pat” Games are played annually in the SEC in order to raise awareness for the Pat Summit Foundation’s fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
