ESPN college football analyst and former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy joined The Paul Finebaum Show on the SEC Network Monday afternoon and he had strong opinions about this Saturday’s SEC West showdown between No. 1 Alabama (5-0, 2-0 SEC) and Texas A&M (3-2, 0-2).

“It’s going to get ugly, and I think most Aggie fans probably know that,” said McElroy.

Finebaum tweeted the full quote from McElroy on Monday evening:

The Crimson Tide and Aggies are scheduled for an 8 p.m. (ET) kickoff from College Station, Texas.

CBS will be broadcasting the contest as Game 2 of its Saturday twin-bill following the 3:30 p.m. broadcast of Georgia at Auburn.
