Looking for a game with a lot on the line? Look no further than the showdown between No. 17 Texas A&M and Auburn on Saturday.
The Aggies and Tigers entered 2016 with tons of question marks, and both teams have found plenty of answers in the first two weeks of the season. However, the loser of Saturday’s contest could find itself in panic mode with hungry fan bases shouting for coaching changes.
Needless to say, there’s a ton at stake.

- However, there’s a lot more on the line than just the coaches’ hot seat, according to FOX Sports. The winner of the game will put themselves right in the thick of the SEC West race, and even the loser has a ton of season left to get where they want to go.
