Hugh Freeze speaks to daunting task of facing Texas A&M, Georgia and LSU
The Auburn Tigers are 3-0 entering their matchup against Texas A&M this week. In fact, this game starts a very difficult 3-game stretch that sees the Tigers playing the Aggies, followed by Georgia and LSU.
Coach Hugh Freeze said the Tigers are about to play a very difficult stretch against extremely talented teams, starting with Texas A&M.
“I want to be really clear, I am probably too candid and honest sometimes for some people, but let’s be really clear,” Freeze said. “We are getting ready to play 3 teams over the last 4 to 5 years have been ranked from 7 to 5 in recruiting. You are playing the best recruits in the nation and we are going to be there soon, but they have a bunch of 5 stars. They are really really talented.”
Injuries have been an issue for Auburn, as the team is pretty banged up in a lot of places. Auburn is going to have play some young players, and Freeze knows they are going to get introduced to SEC football.
“It is a great challenge, we have to get some young guys ready,” Freeze said. “They are going to get baptized to the SEC pretty good in front of A&M’s crowd and the talent on that team.”
The Tigers are looking for their first 4-0 start since 2019, and kickoff against Texas A&M is scheduled for 12 pm ET in College Station on ESPN.
