Reason No. 3: The Texas A&M football team has Jimbo Fisher — Auburn does not
The Texas A&M football team has another advantage in this game. It’s not their rushing units, passing attack, or any other advanced statistic. In fact, it’s actually extremely simple. The Aggies have Jimbo Fisher coaching them.
If Fisher’s National Championship win with Florida State didn’t convince you that he’s a great coach, perhaps this season did. With a team that looked dead in the water, the Aggie head coach became the first former Nick Saban assistant to beat the Alabama head coach. He did it while missing two offensive linemen and his starting quarterback.
The Texas A&M football team may have taken a pair of rough losses earlier in the year, but I trust Fisher to lead his team to victory in what has turned into the Aggies’ biggest game of the season against Auburn on Saturday.
Fisher knows what’s on the line. With wins in three of his last four ranked matchups, this one could be a defining win for the Aggie head coach.
I think the Aggie head coach will put his foot on the gas and prove that he doesn’t just have one of the hottest teams in college football — he has one of the best teams in the game. This means a lot for Texas A&M, a program on the rise, and not as much for Auburn, a program that has had its chance before.
