Alabama football: Nick Saban impressed by Texas A&M fans

  Nick Saban's Crimson Tide have an enormous Week 10 matchup against LSU.

Alabama has one of the most high-profile college football programs. So, naturally, the Crimson Tide faces its share of boos on the road.

However, Texas A&M fans held back the scorn when Alabama visited Kyle Field in Week 7, which impressed Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.

From Saban’s radio show (H/T AL.com):

"It was tough over there, but I'll say this about Texas A&M. And I appreciate this and I hope our fans can hear this because this is the kind of place we should be. You know this is the first place we've played for a long, long time that we never got booed when we came out. First place. Aight, I'm telling you. It was a really nice facility. They had 105,000 people and they cheered their tail off for their team and they made it hard for us to play."

Kudos to the Texas A&M fan base for making their presence known while also being respectful.
