COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) After playing their first big game of the season on the road at top-ranked Clemson, the No. 17 Texas A&M Aggies get their next test in front of their home crowd when they host eighth-ranked Auburn on Saturday.
The Aggies try to adhere to coach Jimbo Fisher's mantra of treating every game the same, but some players couldn't help but feel a difference around town as they prepare for the Tigers in their Southeastern Conference opener.
"You try to approach practice the same, approach the week the same," receiver Jhamon Ausbon said. "But it's definitely a shift of energy in College Station in the atmosphere when you get to conference play."
