Five questions heading into Alabama vs. Texas A&M

Vpzwwvwoskhwlt6imkvh

Alabama won the last meeting, 33-14 in 2016.

A&M has since rebounded and started SEC play 2-0 with wins over Arkansas and SC.

Are the Tide the best team in the country right now?

Speaking with the media Wednesday ahead of the upcoming Texas A&M game, Saban was asked if he had any specific plans involving players who hail from the Houston area, which is where Hurricane Harvey went through in August. In comparison, Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant has only run for more than 100 yards once this season and has turned the ball over three times through the air. That will pay off this weekend against Texas A&M because the Crimson Tide will be without one of their top defensive players. Fitzpatrick is tied for the team lead in tackles with 23 and is credited with breaking up three passes. Mond now has the longest run (79 yards) and second-longest pass (81 yards) in the SEC. Kirk leads the Aggies with 118 all-purpose yards a game and does it in style.

However, whether it was gamesmanship or a frank evaluation of how college football games can unravel, Saban also brought up the Aggies' meltdown in the Rose Bowl. He rushed for 70 yards on 12 carries with a long run of 17 yards against SC. The preseason All-SEC selection had recorded 11 tackles (1.5 for loss) and a sack on the year prior to going down injured. His end zone interception sealed the overtime win over Arkansas.

"Texas A&M is the strongest team that we've played to this point, looking at them from a holistic standpoint", Saban said Monday. "They run the ball very effectively and they've got really good running backs".

Saturday's game kicks off at 6:15 p.m. on ESPN.

Alabama and Texas A&M meet at Kyle Field on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide have generally ended up beating the Aggies, but the hype is always there. With different mindset, he said, the Aggies believe 2017 can be different. "We'll see what happens Saturday". He passed for 159 yards and ran for a team-high 95 in the win over SC. Running backs Keith Ford and Trayveon Williams added 70 and 56 yards, respectively.

Will the Aggies pull off another insane win or will the Crimson Tide dominate again?

At present, there is no federal law explicitly prohibiting workplace discrimination against transgender people. While that move was also greeted with dismay by civil rights advocates, it was less of a reversal than Mr.

"Better be able to block 'em and people have had a really, really hard time doing that over the last five weeks", Sumlin said.

The Aggies have freak athletes all over the field on offense, but one of the biggest resides on defense.

Well, at least we think it has to be true. "This is certainly going to be a big challenge for us, and a division game on the road".

"So we've got to be more disciplined in what we're doing".

Kevin Sumlin has gone 1-4 in matchups against Nick Saban since Texas A&M joined the SEC in 2012.

Tagovailoa. However, Hurts has not truly needed the threat of the deep ball through the first five games of the season. We'll give Texas A&M some respect.

So far, Hurt has leaned on wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who has 24 catches for 322 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

"We need to affect him throughout the game and make him one-dimensional", Holcombe said. "Regardless of the score, there are still things we can learn from and improve from". But if they are stuck dwelling on what happened and what still needs to happen in lieu of the hurricane, then they'll lose two ways.
