A&M Defensive Ends vs. Auburn Offensive Tackles

Auburn returned all five starters from last season, but former Aggie assistant, J.B. Grimes' unit, struggled mightily at times in 2018. The sledding was particularly rough against A&M as the Tigers managed just 19 net yards on 21 attempts and Jarrett Stidham was sacked five times. Even without the sacks taken from War Eagle's yardage total, AU ran for a paltry 53 yards on 16 designed runs. On Saturday, Malzahn will likely lean on his ground game in an attempt to take the pressure off of true freshman signal-caller Bo Nix.
