Auburn Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies Pick & Prediction SEP 21TH 2019


Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher knows Bo - Auburn freshman quarterback Bo Nix, that is - and is well aware that his bloodlines will make it a bit more of a challenge for his No. 15 Aggies when they host the No. 9 Tigers on Saturday in their SEC opener. Fisher was quarterbacks coach at Auburn when Nix's father, Patrick, was the starter in 1994 and 1995, and is well aware of what Bo Nix is capable as he plays his first road game at one of college football's most intimidating venues in Kyle Field.

"It doesn't help you athletically, but it does mentally and psychologically of how to deal with things, deal with situations and what happens and what to expect," Fisher told reporters about how Patrick - a coach at the collegiate and high-school levels since leaving Auburn - has mentored his son. Texas A&M junior quarterback Kellen Mond also will be under the spotlight as he faces a stingy Auburn defense led by senior defensive back Jeremiah Dinson, who paced the team in tackles in each of the first three games. "I feel really good, and what gives me a lot of confidence is how balanced we've been in both the run game and the pass game and being able to be versatile in a lot of different packages,'' Mond told reporters. "I think we'll mix up a lot of things this week, and we'll be ready." The Aggies' run defense allows only 83.7 yards per game but faces its biggest challenge in stopping sophomore running back JaTarvious Whitlow (341 yards, three touchdowns).

TV: 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS. LINE: Texas A&M -3.5

ABOUT AUBURN (3-0): Whitlow has taken some pressure off Nix (52.4 percent completion rate, four touchdowns, two interceptions), who was 12-of-16 in last week's 55-16 victory over Kent State. Junior wide receiver Eli Stove (16 catches, 133 yards, two touchdowns - three total) has been Nix's favorite target while senior WR Will Hastings (seven, 124, one) also has been productive. Senior defensive end Marlon Davidson has registered a team-high 2.5 sacks after recording 9.5 in his first three seasons.

ABOUT TEXAS A&M (2-1): Mond has completed 64.9 percent of his passes with five touchdowns but has thrown an interception in each game. Junior wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon is Mond's top option with 17 catches for 253 yards and two scores. Senior defensive back Roney Elam has recorded the first two interceptions of his career this season and also boasts a sack.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Aggies junior WR Quartney Davis (11 catches, 144 yards, TD) will play after missing last week's 62-3 victory over FCS member Lamar because of back tightness.

2. Texas A&M RB Isaiah Spiller (two touchdowns) leads FBS true freshmen with 246 rushing yards.

3. Auburn is 3-0 at Kyle Field since Texas A&M joined the SEC in 2012, including a 42-27 victory in 2017.

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

Auburn Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies

No. 8 Auburn's defense stifled No. 17 Texas A&M until late in the game and the Tigers did just enough offensively to earn a 28-20 victory in a matchup of Southeastern Conference West Division title hopefuls Saturday in College Station, Texas.

The Tigers (4-0, 1-0 SEC) managed only 299 yards in total offense and gave up 391 to the Aggies (2-2, 0-1 SEC), but only 56 of that came on the ground.

Quarterback Bo Nix was 12 of 20 passing for only 100 yards and got a big first down that allowed the Tigers to run out the clock after the Aggies got within one score.

Running back JaTarvious Whitlow ran for 55 yards of his game-total 67 in the second half, with his 8-yard touchdown run putting the Tigers up 28-10 with 8:27 left in the game.

Quarterback Kellen Mond directed the Aggies to two touchdowns and a field goal in the fourth quarter. He finished 11-of-15 passing in the period and finished the game 31 of 49 for 335 yards.

Mond's 15-yard touchdown pass to receiver Ainias Smith brought the Aggies to within 28-20 with 2:12 left, but the Tigers recovered the onside kickoff.

The Tigers scored touchdowns -- the first on receiver Anthony Schwartz' 57-yard sprint on a reverse -- on two of their first three possessions but led only 14-3 at the halftime break.

Auburn's defense so dominated the line of scrimmage that the Aggies managed only 12 yards rushing over the first two quarters. The Aggies' deepest penetration was to Auburn's 16-yard line but all they got out of it was Seth Small's 33-yard field goal.

Texas A&M running back Isaiah Spiller fumbled on the Aggies' first play of the second half. Nix then threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to receiver Seth Williams to put the Tigers up 21-3 with 12:05 remaining in the third quarter.
