Texas A&M Aggies 4-1, 2-0 SEC

Kyle Field, College Station, TX

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 6:15/7:15 ESPN ESPN - Joe Tessitore, Todd Blackledge, Holly Rowe.

The Crimson Tide is a 26½-point favorite against the Aggies. Alabama has won 11 straight games in the state of Texas.

Jan 1, 1982 vs Texas, Cotton Bowl, Dallas, TX Lost 12–14
Dec 24, 1983 vs SMU, Sun Bowl, El Paso, TX Won 28–7
Dec 25, 1986 vs Washington, Sun Bowl, El Paso, TX Won 28–6
Dec 1, 1988 at Texas A&M, Kyle Field, College Station, TX Won 30–10
Dec 24, 1988 vs Army, Sun Bowl, El Paso, TX Won 29–28
Jan 2, 2006 vs Texas Tech, Cotton Bowl, Dallas, TX Won 13–10
Sep 1 2012 vs Michigan, Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, TX Won 41-14
Sep 14, 2013 at Texas A&M, Kyle Field, College Station, TX Won 49-42
Sep 5, 2015 Wisconsin, AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX Won 35-17
Oct 17, 2015 at Texas A&M, Kyle Field, College Station, TX Won 41-23
Dec 31, 2015 Michigan State, AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX Won 38-0
Sep 3, 2016 Southern Cal, AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX Won 52-6

After a 4th quarter collapse at UCLA and a struggle win against Nichols, the Aggies have regrouped and played a tad better as of late. After a big win over ULL, they won at Arky and at home last week over SC. Watch out for #3 WR Christian Kirk. He can make some big plays but he can also disappear like he did last week (4 rec, 13 yards). On defense, keep an eye on #23 safety Armani Watts.

There will be an extra special guest at today's game. Despite a major heart attack only a few days before, former Alabama and TAMU head coach Gene Stallings will be on hand as the Aggies celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1967 SWC Championship team.

GAME 6 College Station, TX - Saturday should be Sunny with a high of 89°, dropping close to 86° by kickoff, and potentially 77° by the end of the game. 0% chance of rain (or a TAMU win).

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 7:15pm/8:15pm ESPN - Joe Tessitore and Todd Blackledge with Holly Rowe.
