COMMENTS

Auburn has steadily improved over the past few seasons while A&M is your normal reloading A&M. It's hard to get a feel for either team though, as the non-conference slate is nothing compared to the SEC rigors. This should be an excellent series. Look for the Tigers to take advantage of a conference opening series home advantage to pull out a series win.

Series Prediction


Auburn 2 wins, Texas A&M 1 win
