Can Jimbo Fisher out coach Nick Saban and pull out a huge upset?

Tim Heitman - USA TODAY Sports

Fans in College Station, Texas are frustrated, but nothing cures like winning. 

Despite a 3-2 start, Texas A&M is in position to re-write its script as it hosts the University of Alabama on Saturday at Kyle Field. He has not had success versus Nick Saban since leaving his coaching staff at LSU; however, Jimbo Fisher has the six-time national champion on his turf.

The Aggies have the athlete at quarterback that tends to give a Saban defense a lot of problems and an environment to frustrate the Crimson Tide’s offense, but can it pull out a win? Alabama has won in its last three trips to the 12th Man — including a 27-19 victory over Texas A&M in 2017.

On Tuesday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine joined Mark RogersTV “The Voice of College Football” to break down the matchup. 

Smith looks for a strong performance on defense and balance on offense, as the Tide start its push toward a Southeastern Conference Championship and a national title.
