The highly anticipated SEC West matchup between Alabama and Texas A&M is nearly upon us. On Saturday night Jimbo Fisher will lead his Aggies into Tuscaloosa for a contest against his former boss, Nick Saban.
This matchup offers plenty of storylines for each team including revenge for the Tide from last season's upset, to off-the-field beef between the two head coaches. And despite what has happened so far this season, the game is sure to bring lots of intensity.
