Former Aggie defensive end and first NFL draft pick Myles Garrett returned to Kyle Field as an honorary team captain.

Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin said, “We’ve been up and down this year”. This weekend’s match up was an example of a down, as the Aggies couldn’t quite hold onto the Auburn Tigers. Freshman quarterback Nick Starkel had two touchdowns, but Auburn responded to both and more with a final score of 42-27.
