Alabama vs Texas A&M Live: The 22nd Texas A & M Aggies scored 2-1 in the 2018 season and topped 3-0.Aggies will face the toughest test of the season on Saturday against Alabama’s Crimson Tide. In the second week Aggies placed No. 2 Clemson Tigers and pushed them to the limit.
The SEC on CBS invades Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on Saturday as No. 1 Alabama and Texas A&M square off in a huge SEC West matchup that will have vast implications over the remainder of the season. It will be the first time that Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher have met as SEC foes and only the second meeting ever between the two former co-workers (Fisher was Saban’s offensive coordinator at LSU).
Saban, who has never lost to a former assistant coach, is up 1-0 after Alabama’s 24-7 win against Florida State in last year’s season opener. Fisher is coming off a big showing for his Aggies two weeks ago against Clemson; though Texas A&M ultimately lost that game, the team showed way more fight than many expected to see from TAMU in Fisher’s first year. What does that mean for Saturday
Texas A&M: Can the Aggies bring that same energy on the road in Tuscaloosa? Texas A&M did a fantastic job of playing Clemson right down to the final moments in College Station, and now they face another playoff favorite just two weeks later with the increased difficulty of A) it being Alabama and B) no longer being in the friendly confines of Kyle Field with the 12th Man. One thing is for sure: Texas A&M will have to create explosive plays on offense to keep pace with the Tide and luckily from what we’ve seen, Kellen Mond is up to the task.
