No. 8 Auburn (3-0) rolls into College Station to take on No. 17 Texas A&M (2-1) this Saturday. SEC play begins and Auburn is looking to keep its road winning streak against the Aggies alive. Auburn is 3-0 when visiting Kyle Field and will look to even up the all-time series with a win this weekend.

No.8 Auburn is sitting at 2-0 with wins over Oregon and Tulane. The Tigers have a chance to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2014 when they host Kent State this Saturday.

"He's frustrated about his play, and so I know that fire in him, he's gonna come back next week and be even better. He's young, he's gonna keep getting better and better each week, so I'm not too worried about him."
"That's going to be our challenge as a team," Malzahn said. "I think everyone saw that was a big emotional win, everything that goes with that...You've got to put that in your rearview mirror, and you've got to realize that we're playing a very quality opponent."
"We've got monsters up here. Y'all ain't even seen them for real yet."
