CBS Sports analysts predict Alabama-Texas A&M game
CBS Sports’ “Inside College Football” crew of Brian Jones, Rick Neuheisel, Randy Cross, and Aaron Taylor made their selections on Tuesday for Saturday’s Alabama-Texas A&M game. It’s the 2nd half of a doubleheader on CBS and will kick off shortly after 8 p.m. ET, after Georgia-Auburn.
Of course, this game will receive plenty of attention due to the war of words between Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher in May. While the 2 have apparently settled things personally, that’s still set to be among the hot topics leading into Saturday.
“You look at the 3 home games Bama’s played, they’ve outscored opponents 173-10,” Cross noted. “It won’t be quite that lopsided, but Bama all the way.”
“I think Bama’s going to win this game big as well,” said Taylor. “We know the SEC is a line-of-scrimmage league. Well, (Bama’s) defense leads the conference in rush defense, so Texas A&M is not going to be able to run there.”
Neuheisel mentioned that in the previous week, he picked Arkansas to beat Alabama. “I’m not making that mistake again. It’s Alabama,” he said.
Jones cited Texas A&M’s offensive struggles before predicting that it would be “all Bama.”
“I don’t care what they dial up for Milroe, Bama’s defense may score than the Aggies’ offense,” he said.
