After a historic collapse in Week 1 against UCLA, the season has actually turned around quite a bit for the Texas A&M Aggies.
Now at 4-1, they face a tough test when No. 1 Alabama comes to town. In what will be their toughest test of the season, the Aggies are feeling confident in their ability to hang with the Crimson Tide.
According to 247Sports, the Aggies are feeling good about themselves on their four-game winning streak and WR Damion Ratley said he believes Texas A&M can pull off the upset:
“The confidence is there. We’ve known that we’re a good team,” Ratley said. “We’ve always had the confidence that we can beat anybody, and whoever steps on the field with us, we’re going to dominate them no matter what. In our own mentality, we’re going to get the W and walk out.”
Star RB Trayveon Williams added that the Aggies still see big things in their future, even after the devastating Week 1 loss:
“Coming into the season, our confidence level was real high because we already knew what we could do,” Williams said. “We worked our butts off this offseason, and we’re ready to keep going. Big things will come.”
Talking about Alabama hasn’t worked out for teams in the past, but the Aggies aren’t exactly calling out the Tide. Instead, they simply are expressing confidence in themselves, which is a good sign for any team.
Saturday night’s game at Kyle Field kicks off at 6:15 p.m. Central time and can be seen on ESPN.
