Found September 11, 2013 on Fox Sports Southwest:
It's the game of the week, perhaps the year. Alabama vs. Texas A&M: Part 2. Texas A&M spoiled Nick Saban & Co.'s perfect season last year. Will the Crimson Tide get their revenge? Or is Johnny Manziel going to take control again. Arguments can be made for either side, but many are picking Alabama to win in College Station Saturday. After all, it's hard to believe Saban would let the embarrassment happen two years in a row. But Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd is picking the Aggies. According to local papers, Boyd made his prediction when talking to reporters Tuesday during Clemson's weekly interview session. "Honestly? I got A&M. 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 excited to watch it. It's going to be an intriguing game," he said. Regardless of who wins, he'll be right about one thing: It's definitely going to be an intriguing game.
