Ranking Auburn’s 31-20 win over Ole Miss

The decision to air the game on CBS comes after three possible timeslots were provided for the game last week: 11 a.m. on ESPN, 2:30 p.m. on CBS or 6 p.m. on ESPN. Missouri-Georgia received the 11 a.m. designation, while Alabama-LSU was selected for prime time on ESPN.

Auburn (6-2, 3-1 SEC) is coming off a 31-20 win over No. 10-ranked Ole Miss. It was the Tigers’ second straight double-digit win over a ranked opponent after beating Arkansas by 15 points on Oct. 1. 16. Texas A&M (6-2, 3-2) had a bye week this weekend.

Auburn opened as a 6.5-point underdog in the game against Texas A&M. The Tigers are 4-0 at Kyle Field against the Aggies since Texas A&M joined the SEC.
