Bo Nix Leads No. 12 Auburn Against No. 13 Texas A&M
Baseball consumed my Saturdays in October, but I welcome a return to the football field this weekend, headlined by a top-25 SEC matchup between Auburn and Texas A&M. I'll also be keeping my eye on No. 2 Cincinnati. The Bearcats were snubbed by the College Football Playoff committee, so they'll be looking to prove themselves as they host Tulsa and ESPN's College GameDay.
Elsewhere in the sports world, Manchester City and Manchester United jostle for position in the Premier League, and Noah Gragson and AJ Allmendinger compete for the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship for the first time.
Here's what I'm watching.
College football: Auburn at Texas A&M
In each of Auburn's four previous visits to Texas A&M, the guests have left with a win. The No. 12 Tigers will look to do the same Saturday against the No. 13 Aggies.
Auburn quarterback Bo Nix has led his team to a 6–2 record in his third season as the starter, including back-to-back wins against then-ranked Arkansas and No. 15 Ole Miss. In those wins, he threw for 568 yards and three touchdowns, and he rushed for three touchdowns as well. For the season, he has 1,764 yards and nine touchdowns through the air, plus 189 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

College football: Tulsa at Cincinnati
Cincinnati holds a perfect 8–0 record, the No. 2 slot in the AP Top 25 … and the No. 6 spot in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season. While that represents the highest ranking for a non-Power 5 program in the CFP era, the Bearcats sit two spots outside of the projected playoff field.
"The win at Notre Dame was a really impressive win," CFP chairman Gary Barta said of Cincinnati. "When you look at who they've played after that, who else did they beat?"
The disrespect from the CFP committee should provide the Bearcats with plenty of motivation heading into today's game against the Golden Hurricane (3–5).
