While appearing on the Pat McAfee Show, head coach Nick Saban discussed why Texas A&M has become one important rivalry game...
“I think rivalries come from other teams being good. LSU has always been really, really good. That became a big game. It wasn’t really a natural rivalry. And I think Texas A&M is kinda the same way. They’re really, really good.
“They’ve got a really good team this year. Every year we played them, this has kinda been a pivotal game for them and for us. I think the importance of the game depends on how you define rivalry, I guess. but the importance of the game gets escalated because they have a really good team and I think we have a really good team.
“It’s going to be two good teams playing and we gotta do it on the road in a tough environment. I think that’s a challenge most players really like. That’s why they come to a place like this, to play in games like this.”
