Texas A&M vs. Alabama under the lights at Kyle Field

What could go wrong?

Texas A&M fans may be slightly less optimistic about our chances to knock off the defending national champs following this weekend’s loss, but a picture perfect atmosphere looks like it will give the team every possible chance. It was announced on Monday that, as expected, the Aggies and the Alabama Crimson Tide will kick off at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9, in the oh-so-rare CBS night game.

A crips fall evening, with a sold out Kyle Field? Sounds like college football heaven, even if you’re facing the biggest juggernaut program in the history of college football. And it’s also worth nothing that the only time the Aggies have stayed within one score of Alabama was the only time we’ve played them in a night game at Kyle Field. In fact, Texas A&M has not lost an SEC night home game under Jimbo Fisher (with the only nighttime home loss coming at the hands of Clemson in 2018).

The crowd will be hyped up, as I’m sure the team will be as well. How long that hype lasts once the game starts is yet to be seen, but you can’t ask for a better setting for A&M’s biggest game of the season to date.
