Before heading to College Station for the biggest college football game of the year, legendary coach Gene Stallings was in East Texas Thursday night.
The former Texas A&M and Alabama head coach was the keynote speaker at a benefit dinner for the Lindale I.S.D. Education Foundation at Villa Di Felicitia
Coach Stallings says can't wait for the big game on Saturday.
"I think it's the biggest game perhaps Texas A&M has ever hosted ever," said Stallings. "I can't think of a game that has more national attention, more riding on it than this one. This is a big deal for Texas A&M."
Stallings says even though the Aggies upset the Alabama in 2012, this years rematch means more to Texas A&M.
"You're talking about team (Alabama) that's won two national championships in a row," Stallings. "It's another game on their schedule. It's not another game for Texas A&M I can assure you."
