No. 1 Alabama visits Aggies after steamrolling 2 SEC teams

Texas A&M has never won a home game versus the Crimson Tide as the Aggies defeated Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in 2012 and in the 1968 Cotton Bowl in Dallas. In the lead up to the game, Saban had described the Aggies as the best team the Tide would face through the first six contests. The Crimson Tide are favored by 26½ points, and the Aggies have only been bigger underdogs once at Kyle Field, against Oklahoma (27½ points) in 2008.

The Bama' Defense: There were serious questions about the state of Alabama's defense at the beginning of the season, but after the last two games, those questions have mostly been answered.

Maligned throughout the season's first three weeks for some poor pass protection and not finishing its blocks - a byproduct of what Tide coach Nick Saban labeled a lack of physicality - the Tide's offensive line has cured whatever ailed it. We want to prove that we can be a fourth quarter team, and play in a tough game in a tough environment, but we couldn't... As long as Alabama can avoid upset by anyone on their schedule, look for the Tide to return to the National Championship Game yet again this year with redemption on their minds.

He flashed that ability with a 37-yard fourth quarter touchdown in last season's Texas A&M game.

While it looked much more serious at the time, Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported Tuesday that Hand sprained his MCL and will be out for three games. "We're not going to beat everybody 66-3". I think this opponent was just a little bit more and a little bit more than we expected I guess you could say.

Moreland has been here before; Ramirez has been terrific in the postseason; Devers could be what Xander Bogaerts was in 2013. They need to assume Game 3 in Boston is a lost cause, and hope the baseball gods smile on them when it comes to pass.

The Crimson Tide defense stood its ground there before the Aggies' Daniel LaCamera nailed a career-high 52-yard field goal. The load was shared equally amongst the Alabama team, as Bo Scarborough had 15 carries for 59 yards and Channelview native Jalen Hurts had 14 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Jalen Hurts led Alabama with 101 rushing yards, while still passing for 197 and a pair of touchdowns.

Christian Kirk added that after tonight, all the Aggies will be focused on is the Florida Gators who they play next Saturday in Gainesville.

The Alabama defense was in the Texas A&M backfield all game, as the on the battle up front. Mond has five touchdown passes in his last three games.

We need Nick Saban to share more personal stories. Then the Aggies responded by blocking a punt out of the end zone, giving them two points and another possession to whittle away at the Tide's lead. "They run the ball very effectively, and they've got really good running backs". After beating Vanderbilt and Ole Miss by a combined 125-3, the Tide will head into College Station as four touchdown favorites against a one-loss Aggies team.
