And then there were two.

Two teams left to decide SEC supremacy. Two teams still undefeated. Two teams with the best chance of representing the SEC in the College Football Playoff.

As fate would have it, those two teams meet on the gridiron on Saturday. Texas A&M takes its 6-0 record (4-0 in the SEC) into Bryant-Denny Stadium to take on top-ranked Alabama, 7-0 (4-0 in SEC), which is fresh off a 49-10 drubbing of Tennessee in Rocky Top.

ESPN College GameDay will be on hand in Tuscaloosa for the titanic battle, which begins at 3:30 p.m. ET and televised nationally by CBS.

This is the kind of game Texas A&M had envisioned playing in since officially joining the SEC in July 2012. A chance to knock off the best the conference has to offer and place itself at the top of the heap.

Fans and local businesses alike are swept up in the excitement. As reported by Robert Cessna of, Ashley Furniture HomeStore in College Station will offer full rebates to customers, covering the first million in sales from the start of the promotion if the Aggies win on Saturday.

Remember Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Ann Arbor, Mich., offering a percentage off the food bill equal to the Michigan football team’s margin of victory? And then the Wolverines promptly blanked Rutgers, 78-0, prompting the restaurant to invoke the fine print, which stated a 50 percent limit.

Well, the local furniture store has promised to refund a million dollars in receipts if the Aggies can pull off what some are now believing would be a minor miracle after the way the Tide thumped the Vols yesterday. Alabama rolled 49-10 on the road over a Tennessee team that took the Aggies to overtime the previous week. Granted, the Vols’ defense was banged up, but it was an impressive performance from Alabama nonetheless.

Plus, the game is being played on Alabama’s home field, where the Tide has lost only twice since the 2011 season. Ah, but one of those two losses was to Johnny Manziel and the Aggies, 29-24, on Nov. 10, 2012.

That was also a top-ranked Alabama team, so it’s not like this is uncharted waters that Texas A&M hasn’t already successfully navigated. The captain leading the ship, Kevin Sumlin, is still doing so and he has many of the same tools that got the job done four years ago.

So you say there’s a chance? Sure, Manziel could be compared in a sense to current Texas A&M starting quarterback Trevor Knight. A year after Manziel led the Aggies to victory over Alabama in the regular season, Knight lit up the Tide in the Sugar Bowl following the 2013 season.

He was an up-and-coming youngster at Oklahoma at the time, but Knight led the Sooners to a 45-31 thumping of Alabama. It tied for the largest margin of victory over an Alabama team since a 28-13 loss to Florida at The Swamp in 2006.

Knight threw for 348 yards and 4 touchdowns, completing 32-of-44 passes in what has been his shining moment to date.

Aggies fans, and local furniture store customers alike, are hoping for a similar showing on Saturday.
