We are simply better than Texas A&M. Though I worry about any game against a good team, this doesn't have the feel of an upset. The Aggies are coming to Tuscaloosa having not rested in several weeks. I think Sumlin is an average coach who has lucked into a situation with a really athletic quarterback and has made the most of it. However nice their QB looks, he is still a freshman. The only way Alabama doesn't win this game is if we pull a repeat of last week's game and allow their offense to run a whole lot of plays. I just don't see it happening again. Alabama scores early and often. Coach Saban's defense will bend on occasion to the Aggies, but no way do they score more than two touchdowns on us. Unless we turn the ball over several times, we put this game away by the middle of the third quarter. Reading the Aggie boards, you'd think they were the ones who almost won last Saturday. They lost at home to LSU and Florida and barely beat Ole Miss and La Tech.
The Aggies have done a good job their first year in the SEC. However, they haven't shown the ability to win big games when the chance was there. Close doesn't count. This one won't be close.
Texas A&M 17
45-17 good guys.
Is anyone remembering A&M has played 10 STRAIGHT games. Manziel is a great talent but inexperienced against a Nick Saban coached defense it's a confusing defense with all the last second defensive adjustments. I'm thinking Bama 38 A&M 13
I like a lot of the picks I'm seeing. Looks like most of us are on the same page. LSU humbled us a little but hey, we played poorly, they played great, and we still found a way to win. I know we are better than that.
I think we bounce back pretty strong against Texas A&M. Twice I have watched the Aggies play from beginning to end - games with UF and LSU. Johnny Football and his guys got up and down the field early, but in both cases, they got shut down later in the game. I see a similiar outcome.
Additionally, I believe our offense comes on with the power running game and play-action pass. We put up some points.
I'm going to say
Alabama 42 aTm 19
42-10 Bama ...... LSwho averaged 7.1 yards per rush against them....I say we pound them with our OL and just eat the clock.....Johnny Football can't score if he's riding the pine....

ROLL TIDE ROLL!
42-21 Tide Rolls!
With all the press saying how Great we are Bama needed a game like LSU last Saturday, now they really come together. I like CG score but if Cooper is back add 2 more TD s for the Good Guys.
Think we will see a defense that can stop 3rd down & an Offesnse that just drives all the way down the field.
Considering A&M knows they're out of the race (unlike LSU, until last night), I don't forsee quite the same game.
That, and it's at home.
Alabama 38, A&M 17
Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.
