COLLEGE STATION (October 25, 2012) -- Texas A&M plays the first of three straight road games on Saturday when the 22nd-ranked Aggies visit Auburn.
They aren't concerned about the tough road stretch, which continues with No. 13 Mississippi State and top-ranked Alabama. First-year coach Kevin Sumlin has won his last nine straight games away from home, including last season when he was at Houston.
It is the first time the Aggies (5-2, 2-2 SEC) have had three straight regular-season games away from College Station since playing a neutral-site game followed by two road games in 1994.
But that stretch of games included trips to San Antonio and Austin, so it was far less taxing than the almost 4,000 miles the Aggies will have traveled getting to and from their next three games.
