Paul Finebaum weighs in on Texas A&M-Alabama, when SEC teams will begin to separate
There are only two SEC games this week where both teams are 1-0, and one of them is in Tuscaloosa where Texas A&M visits Alabama.
ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum weighed in on the matchup on “First Take” and said he thinks Alabama rolls to victory.
Alabama started with a road win over Missouri, while Texas A&M got past Vanderbilt in a tight battle.
“I think Alabama looked really good the other day,” Finebaum said. “It’s because of a lot of reasons. Mac Jones is a very good quarterback replacing Tua. They have two very good receivers that will be all over the NFL next year. Najee Harris to me is a Heisman candidate. Don’t forget Dylan Moses, the linebacker who missed the entire season last year. I don’t think this game (against Texas A&M) is going to be particularly close.”
Although Auburn plays Georgia this week in the other game involving two 1-0 teams, Finebaum said to circle the Oct. 17 date when Georgia travels to Alabama.
“Alabama has Georgia in a couple of weeks which I think will start to separate,” he said. “You’re going to start seeing separation immediately. Don’t worry about Alabama, they’re going to be around all season long.”
