The first College Football Playoff rankings came out this week, and the Auburn Tigers debuted at No. 14. Standing in their way of climbing into the Top 10 is a very dangerous Texas A&M team. Auburn will be facing the Aggies in an early morning kickoff at Kyle field in College Station Saturday.

Sometimes it’s hard to get going in those 11 a.m. games, but the Tigers can’t afford a slow start. They need to come out smoking and take the 12th man out of the game before the crowd can get revved up good.

This game as so often is the case will set the tone for how both of these teams might finish out the season. As Cole Locascio said in his article Wednesday, Auburn needs to win two of the last three SEC match ups to have a good season. A ‘W’ on Saturday will make the Orange and Blue 7–2 heading into Georgia week.

The Aggies (5–3, 3–2 SEC) have taken some lumps in recent weeks and are no longer ranked. Still, they must be respected since they are playing at home and are close to earning a good enough record to qualify for the post season.

Those attending the game will have to deal with Indian summer conditions with temps around 90 degrees. For those who will watch the game on television, we have prepared a broadcast schedule of all of Saturday’s college football games following Auburn’s game with TAMU.

Game times are Central Standard, and all SEC games as well as those involving top 25 teams are underlined. Games on ESPN/ABC can be viewed by clicking here, and games on ESPN3 can be viewed by clicking on this link.

Acid Reign will have an open thread up Saturday morning, so check back and add your thoughts about the game as it unfolds. War Eagle and …

    RECRUITING is something that is not mentioned a lot on this site. GA has always out recruited us due to the fact that the state of GA has twice the population that the state of AL has and GA has little competition from other teams. GA usually gets its pick of the top players.

    Bama has out recruited us every year since Saban got there ten years ago. It also has the tradition of winning NCs over the years of the Bear and even back to Rose Bowl times in the 1920’s. Its tradition helps recruit. It usually gets it pick in the state of AL.

    Virtually all of our coaches fail at recruiting after a few years. It did with Bowden, Tuberville and Chizik and is hurting Malzahn now. For example the only top flight QBs we have signed out of high school goes back to Jason Campbell and Brandon Cox. We got Cam, Nick Marshall, Kenny Irons (RB) and even Stidham as malcontents from other schools and we were thrilled to get them. GA & Bama have usually had superior quarterbacks to us and that’s a killer.

    Pat Dye was the only coach in memory to have great recruiting every year. Part of that reason is that Bear Bryant had retired and died and Bama has inferior coaching for awhile. So i think Malzahn is a good recruiter but he is fighting an up hill battle vs not only GA & Bama but LSU as well.

    …..Even Dye had recruiting issues. After signing Brent Fullwood in the 1983 class, Dye never picked up another breakaway runner, till Stephen Davis as a partial qualifier in the 1992 class. James Joseph and Stacy Danley were tough guys, but they weren’t going to outrun anyone. Things got so thin in the early 1990s that Dye took a walk-on nose guard and played him at tailback in 1991.

    …..The same thing happened on the defensive line. Auburn had one of the most dominant defensive lines in state history in 1987 and 1988. Dye was unable to reload, and Tennessee and Florida were shortly torching us.
