Why Texas A&M Football Beats Tide Resoundingly
For Texas A&M football fans, this is what you have been waiting for. This is the time. A home showdown, with a star-studded squad, against the greatest dynasty the sport has ever seen, where projections basically have the game as a dead heat. This is program-defining. This is legacy-making. This is the moment.
I’ll have a fuller article on this later today, but the magnitude of this matchup cannot be understated. It can and likely will define the direction of the balance of power in the conference going forward. This is a true heavyweight battle.
For the first time, as I count who may have the advantage where, it feels like the Aggies are better at more positions than the Tide. By raw numbers, more of these matchups favor the Ags. Now, the explosive pass game can be the equalizer—but though Milroe excels at that area, it is hard to believe they can hit that deep throw consistently when he has averaged just over 21 passing attempts at all per game for the season.
Combine this with the fact that the Tide will be entering Kyle Field possibly at the most packed and hostile it’s ever been for their first true road test of the season (with apologies to Mississippi State), not to mention that this is a second straight conference road game for Bama, and you can feel the doom begin to set in over Bama’s chances. Nothing will be final until around about 6 or 6:30 PM CT tomorrow, but there is a reason the Aggies feel so good about this game.
They let it escape last year. Not again. Not in Kyle Field. Not to this team. The Tide are in for a beatdown the likes of which they have not suffered since Trevor Lawrence blew them out in the national championship game.
Let’s discuss how this will go.
