Assault the Aggies!
(Auburn vs. Texas A&M, open thread.)
War Eagle, everybody! It’s gameday once again! It’s the 8th weekend of college footall, and today the Auburn Tigers host the Texas A&M Aggies. It should be a brisk, breezy evening for this one, with a nearly full moon perhaps peeking out through mostly cloudy skies during the game. It’s military appreciation day on the Plains, and servicemen and women from both schools will be honored. This one will be televised on ESPN-U.
This game is one we’ve been dreading, because Auburn seemingly has lots of matchup problems on both sides of the ball. An under-achieving front seven on defense must somehow contain a ridiculously strong offensive line, and the fastest quarterback in college football. And the Auburn offense for the first time all season will have to find a way to sustain drives, eat the clock up, and score touchdowns. It’s a tall order, for this team.
As always, feel free to chime in and sound off on this thread! I think most of our staff will be at this game, trying to help our Tigers pull out a win. It’s Saturday primetime once again at Jordan Hare, where miracles happen. War Eagle, and let’s beat Texas A&M!
