First Glance: Auburn Tigers at Texas A&M on CBS

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Has your blood pressure come down from Saturday night yet? Great. Now, the Auburn War Eagles Tigers are headed to Kyle Field. Let's take a quick look at this matchup.

What You Need to Know:

  • Want to join us at Kyle Field? The 12th Man Foundation does not have any tickets left, so we wish you the best of luck on the secondary market. (Flash Seats is the official secondary market partner of Aggie Athletics and the TMF, so you may want to start there.)
  • Auburn comes to College Station ranked #24 in the AP Poll. The Tigers have a 5-1 record so far, including wins over Mississippi State and Ole Miss with their only loss coming to LSU in Baton Rouge.
  • The Tigers appear to be vastly improved from last season. The 2012 squad went 0-8 in SEC play and finished the year 3-9.
  • Your Fightin' Texas Aggies went on the road to Auburn and took care of business 63-21. Check out the highlights HERE.

Historical Notes

  • The Aggies have never lost to Auburn, holding a 3-0 series lead.
  • The first matchup between A&M and Auburn took place in College Station Dallas (LINK) way back in 1911. The Ags won 16-0.
  • The second time these two teams squared off was that 1986 Cotton Bowl. Highlights? HERE. Bo No Go at Co Bo.
