Whatever is going on with the Auburn Tigers, they better figure it out quick.

Behind 19 points from Josh Nebo, the Texas A&M Aggies won 78-75 tonight in a huge upset to continue the Tigers recent swoon. A&M were +650 on the money line, and 12.5 point underdogs at tip-off at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The fact this coincides with Bruce Pearl appearing on a popular dating reality show right around Valentine’s Day? Coincidence, we’re sure.

With losses to CBI fodder Missouri and Georgia since mid-February, then Kentucky on the road, and now Texas A&M at home (they of the 123 NET rating), it’s legitimately a free fall now. And with future NBA Lottery pick Isaac Okoro back and playing, there’s not really an injury excuse here either. Okoro had 15 points and five rebounds in 34 minutes tonight.

Right now Auburn is 30-1 to cut down the nets at the Final Four, but ff they don’t get it together soon, they’ll be lucky to make the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
