If Alabama can take care of business next Saturday in Knoxville, then Oct. 22 in Tuscaloosa will be huge.
Like, really, really huge.
That’s because the game will be No. 1 Alabama against a potentially top 5 Texas A&M team.
In case you missed it, the Aggies (6-0, 4-0 in SEC) beat Tennessee in one of the season’s wildest games, 45-38, in overtime Saturday. It was a game of swings and just when it looked like the Vols were going to pull off another improbable victory, Texas A&M came up with the game’s biggest play.
With the win, the Aggies remain No. 2 in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll. Alabama, of course, is No. 1.
The weekly poll includes 17 voters from SEC Country and around the country.
“I believe in our guys and I know that internally we believe in each other so when our backs are against the wall and we’re forced to make plays, we believe in the guy next to us and it just happens,” Aggies QB Trevor Knight said after Saturday’s game.
