With the biggest game in college football less than a day away, it's impossible to not feel the excitement in the air driving around Aggieland.

"This one is definitely probably the biggest game I'm ever going to see probably," said A&M freshman Kirby Haywood. "All the hype around it ,like there's going to be so many people in College Station and the atmosphere, obviously Game Day is here so it's just really exciting."

It's also even more impossible to not notice the Bama fans starting to trickle in.

"I saw one Bama fan in the Memorial Student Center and he looked pretty alone," said Wesley Gill.

More than 90,000 fans are expected to be in attendance at Saturday's game but an additional 30,000 are anticipated to come to town just to celebrate.

Bama fan, Mathew Chesley, is one of those 30,000.

he and a group of friends traveled the ten hours from Tuscaloosa to Aggieland despite not having a ticket to the game.

"I had to take tests early, I had to schedule, I had to break friendships, I had to, you know, it was tough to get down here but I wouldn't miss it for the world," Chesley tells us.

And with all eyes on Aggieland this weekend we had to ask, who's going to win?

"You hear a lot of scores of what you think it's going to be but I think it'll be a close game like last year probably in the 20s or 30s because they [Alabama]  have a good defense but we have a good offense," said Aggie Amy Douthit. 

"Nick Saban doesn't lose to teams two times in a row very often so I'm expecting a Bama win but I'm also expecting it to be a really good game," Stephen Hammond, a Bama fan predicts.

Time will tell who will claim the victory but until kick-off Saturday...

"Roll tide roll!"

"Good luck and Gig Em!!!"
