Nick Saban Praises Texas A&M's Kyle Field, Says It's Type Of Place Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium "Should Be"

On the field, Texas A&M is looking up at Alabama, which has won three national titles under Nick Saban and defeated the Aggies by a combined 77 points over the last two seasons. 

When it comes to the stuff around the field, though - the fans and the stadium itself - the Crimson Tide are hoping to mirror the Aggies. 

Saban said on his weekly radio show Thursday night that Texas A&M's recently renovated Kyle Field is the type of place Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium "should be." Here's what he said, as transcribed by SEC Country

“You talk about loud,” he said. “You talk about affecting the game. I mean, their fans really did affect the game, and it says a lot about our players to keep their poise and focus.”


“You know, this is the first place we’ve played for a long, long time, that we never got booed when we came out,” he said. “First place. I’m telling ya. It’s 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.”


“I hope our fans can hear this,” he said, “because this is the kind of place we should be.”

Kyle Field was renovated this offseason and now has a capacity of more than 100,000. It's clearly as first-class a stadium as there is in the sport.
