Groans from the Alabama fans continue. 

The thought of having a night game under the lights is put off another week, as Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide will endure the sun and the CBS commentary crew of Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson next week at Kyle Field (College Station, Texas) against Texas A&M.  

On Monday morning, the Southeastern Conference announced a 2:30 p.m. kickoff time for Alabama and the Aggies while the LSU-Florida matchup gets the 7:00 p.m. slot via ESPN. 

The Tide has had all day games thus far – including an 11:00 a.m. time slot against Southern Mississippi at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Coach Saban has mentioned on multiple occasions on being grateful for the fans that support the team, despite the humid weather conditions.

It will be a hot one in Texas, but the question is which version of the Aggies shows up to face Alabama? Despite blasting teams like Lamar and Texas State, Jimbo Fisher and company struggled offensively against Clemson and had issues with Auburn and Arkansas. 

Saban’s bunch has handled Texas A&M in two trips to the 12th Man – including a 41-23 drubbing of the Aggies in 2015, where its field was newly renovated. This meeting with be interesting as the Tide has youth on defense; however, its offense is very exhilarating.
