Next on the schedule for both of these teams: Bama. The numbers say the Aggies are slightly likely to have more on the line against the Tide. It’s easy to say Ohio State-Michigan in November will likely be the Big Ten’s Playoff elimination game. In the SEC, though, we don’t have to wait as long.
The next three weeks should decide the Playoff pecking order within the league, as its three remaining unbeatens play each other in a perfect home-and-road round robin (albeit with A&M getting a bye before the trip to Bama).
The Aggies have elite players on both sides of the ball and a QB who’s beaten the Tide before. Will that be anywhere near enough? Maybe the only thing crankier than Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s response to a loss is his response ...
