Everybody seems to be excited about the big game coming up on Saturday in College Station between No. 6 Texas A&M and No. 1 Alabama.
And now one prominent player has gone on record about the game’s outcome.
Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd was asked by his local media on Tuesday which team he thought would win.
“Honestly? I got A&M,” said Boyd, whose No. 3 Tigers have Saturday off. “A lot of people say Saban won’t be beat twice; it’s at A&M. It’s going to be a competitive game. It’s going to be a fun game. I’m going to watch it. It’s going to be an intriguing game.”
It’s no wonder Boyd is picking the Aggies. After all, both Clemson and Texas A&M run high-powered spread offenses and are used to scoring points in bunches. Given how well Clemson’s offense has fared against the likes of Georgia and LSU recently, and the fact that A&M confounded Alabama last season, it makes sense that Boyd would relate more to what the Aggies have to offer.
Of course, it’s a lot easier to talk when you don’t have to actually play the Tide, isn’t it?
