The kickoff time and TV network for Alabama football at Texas A&M has been announced.
The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0 SEC) will travel to College State, Texas to face the Aggies (3-1, 1-0 SEC) at 7:15 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 7, at Kyle Field. The game will be televised on ESPN.
This week, Alabama hosts Ole Miss in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN.
Alabama is coming off a 59-0 pounding of Vanderbilt this past Saturday. Overall, it was Alabama’s best game to date this season. The Crimson Tide came out, jumped on Vanderbilt immediately and never let up.
Alabama was clean on both sides of the ball. Vanderbilt had no hope of doing anything. At one point, it was a little sad to watch because Vanderbilt was completely overmatched.
Running back Damien Harris was the star of the day with 151 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns, and an average of 12.6 yards per carry. Bo Scarbrough added 79 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Freshman Brian Robinson scored his first rushing touchdown of the season. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts didn’t need to do much.
Freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa came in and showed why he was such a highly touted prospect with 2 touchdown passes. Freshmen Jerry Jeudy and Devonta Smith each caught their first career touchdown passes.
Alabama’s defense held Vanderbilt to just 78 yards of offense for the game. I don’t care who you are playing, holding a Power 5 team to that low of a total is a great accomplishment. The Commodores had only 3 first downs all night.
Alabama’s pass rush picked up quite a bit compared to earlier games. The Crimson Tide also forced a couple of turnovers.
