Will the fans of Alabama football and Texas A&M get what they want?
This year’s contest between the Crimson Tide and Aggies will be intense, especially after the dust-up between Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher about the NIL model. Ainias Smith, a wide receiver for Texas A&M, is calling for the Aggies fan base to “pack the stadium” in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Current and former Alabama players showed support to Coach Saban and are ready for the contest.
CBS Sports announced its college football broadcast schedule for the fall.

The network will have two games on Saturday, Oct. 8. One matchup will be at 2:30 p.m. CT while the other is the SEC on CBS Game of the Week for 7:00 p.m. CT. Alabama and Texas A&M fans want the SEC Western Division Game to be in prime time.
🤔 I wonder what game on October 8th could be a primetime game? Who does Alabama play that week? 😁 https://t.co/MRbMyXZEWh
