Alabama and Texas A&M Slated For Primetime on Oct. 9
The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide will take on No. 15 Texas A&M in College Station on Saturday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. CT, the conference announced on Monday. The Tide is unbeaten at Kyle Field.
CBS will either choose Georgia at Auburn or Arkansas at Ole Miss as its 2:30 p.m. CT appetizer as the Tide and Aggies compete in the primetime matchup.
Alabama currently holds an 11-2 series lead over Texas A&M and is currently 8-1 since the Aggies joined the SEC in 2012. Despite finishing No. 4 in the nation in 2020 the Crimson Tide took down A&M 52-24 in Bryant-Denny Stadium in their regular season matchup.
The matchup carries particular intrigue this season as during the offseason Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher told fans and boosters that his team would, "beat their ass" in reference to Nick Saban's Crimson Tide team.
