The No. 4 ranked Georgia football team host Texas A&M in its final home game of the season. The game is set for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff on CBS.
This is the first time both Georgia and Texas A&M have met as conference foes, as the Aggies first joined the conference back in 2012.
The meeting will be between two former Nick Saban assistants, as Kirby Smart will go up against Jimbo Fisher.
The Aggies enter the game riding a four-game winning streak and a 7-3 record. The losses have come against Alabama, Clemson and Auburn, who all rank in the top 15 in the country. The Aggies also take on LSU next week, meaning this game will be an interesting point of comparison between Georgia and some other playoff contenders.

What Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said about Texas A&M
On Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond being dangerous with the run and passing:
“Very much so. He is probably improved as much as a player from high school to now as any quarterback I’ve ever seen. I liken it to when Dak [Prescott] first went to Mississippi State and Dan [Mullen] took him and did all these really good things with him, Jimbo has really — this kid has a tremendous arm talent. We know the athlete he is. We know he can run. But it’s not like you say this guy is a runner first. He’s a really good passer, and the beauty of it he plays in a pro-style offense and throws to some really good weapons and checks things, moves things around, but is extremely athletic. And when I say athletic, I don’t mean, oh, he’s going to scramble for a first down. When he takes off running, he continues running. And there’s guys out there that just can’t catch him. He doesn’t always look to do that, but when he does, it’s extremely dangerous. Makes you play him a different kind of way, so we’ve got a tough charge in front of us.”
On facing Texas A&M:
Jimbo Fisher is an unbelievable coach. This team will probably be one of the most talented teams we’ve played against. We all know who their three losses are against. I feel like the three losses are against Top 10 teams that are really, really good football teams. And they have an immense amount of talent. As far as their receiving corps will be one of the best we’ve played against. They have a total of eight or nine starters back on offense. Really, basically every position outside tight end and a running back is coming back for their team. And when you watch them on tape, it really jumps off the film at you.
So our kids understand the challenge we got. It’s part of the grind in the SEC to be beat up and have to play another good football team. And that’s what they are. They’re coming to Sanford Stadium for the first time. So Jimbo and I have been on a staff together before. Obviously Coley and him have been on a staff together for a while and got a lot of respect for the way his teams play. And they’re really good in all three phases. So this will be a big test, after an emotional win that we’ll have to prepare really well for. So with that, I’ll open it up.”
On the Texas A&M offense
“It’s different when you see the two-back runs. That’s not a thing that everybody uses anymore. A lot of people create two-back runs with their tight end. These guys are almost like three-back runs because they have the two backs and the tight end they use. They move the pocket really. Jimbo (Fisher) does a good job, he changes it up, he keeps you off balance. They’ve got a lot of passing game that they’re able to run in a lot of situations.”
