If a team ever needed a bye week more than Kentucky, then I’d like to know the team and their circumstances. After the Vandy beat down and the firing of Joker Phillips, the Wildcats need some time to recharge their batteries. So this week I will be predicting my usual college football games, minus the Wildcats. We’ll get back to them for senior night against Samford.
SEC Game of the Week: #15 Texas A&M Aggies (7-2, 4-2) at #1 Alabama Crimson Tide (9-0, 6-0): Saturday November 10th, 3:30 PM
Alabama survived their toughest test of the season by going down to Baton Rouge and taking on the LSU Tigers. There has been some argument this week whether or not the Tide won the game, or if LSU lost it by going conservative while their aggressive style put them in the lead. Regardless, Alabama sits at 9-0 and are ready to welcome a very tough team to Tuscalossa.
That very tough team happens to be the Aggies of Texas A&M. Their first season in the SEC has been very good thus far and they are looking to put an exclamation point on it by beating the best team in the country on their home field. A&M brings one of the nation’s best offenses (19th in passing, 10th in rushing) to play the best defense in college football. After Alabama, the Aggies are looking towards to winnable games and perhaps and BCS game.
But Alabama is too tough at home. Texas A&M will hang around for a little while, but the Crimson Tide will pull away.
Alabama Crimson Tide 30- Texas A&M Aggies 17
