    TAMU is for sure a feisty & dangerous team with a talented rb and probably a future Heisman contender qb that is the heart and soul of their team. Their defense however, is allowing lots of points and yardage, from inferior opponents which will likely do them in against Bama.

    I think they'll get some plays on us, as their offense is potent and we're a tired team. Their two losses came against superior opponents, UF and LSU, who both managed to hold the Aggie offense to under 20 pts and I think Bama's defense will do the same.
    Bama will likely play "keep-away" controlling the game offensively with long drives, so that Johnny Football stays on the bench and our defense gets some rest.

    35 BAMA
    20 TAMU
    Why do people keep thinking Alabama is the only "tired and beat up" team in this game ? This A&M's 10 straight game and their fourth road game in the last five weeks. They haven't had a bye week to get ready for us like LSU did. I agree A&M is a dangerous team but I'd be more concerned if this game were in College Station. A&M took advantage of a bad Auburn team and a Miss. State team that didn't show up after the beatdown by Alabama. Bama knows what is has to do to win and will get it done.

    It will be relatively close at half time but there will not be a second half let down or in the redzone fumble on a hand-off the way there was against LSU.
    It's not rocket surgery!

    A very respectful prediction. If the Aggies win this is a good pick. I figure A&M has to score in the mid 30s to have a chance. FWIW, yall are catching us at a good time coming off the LSU game.

    I'm concerned too! Everybody is beat up but we just played LSU. I'm concerned about our secondary and their qb making some plays to hurt us.

    I think this is a survival game pure and simple. I'll take a one point victory and then we can rest and heal and should easily take care of WC and the Barn before we go play the Dawgs.

    I am going 24-21 Bama. I just don't think our D will be able to stop your rushing attack. I think we will score a few times, but like LSU and FL in the 2nd half a ball control offense will keep us off the field.

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    Our average game: Score 65% more than the opposing defense averages, and hold defense to 32% of opponent's offensive average.
    A&M's average game: Score 61% more than the opposing defense averages, and hold defense to 74% of opponent's offensive average.

    Our average score: 38-9
    A&M's average score: 42-23

    Our average SEC score:38-10
    A&M's average SEC score: 38-19

    Our offenses look like they are pretty much statistically even. Our defense (no surprise) looks to be the difference.

    Expected score: 33-14, Alabama


    ETA:
    Common Opponents:
    Ole Miss - AL: 33-14 (@AL) vs. aTm: 30-27 (@OM)
    Arkansas - AL: 52-0 (@AR) vs. aTm: 58-10 (@aTm)
    LSU - AL: 21-17 (@LSU) vs. aTm: 19-24 (@aTm)
    MSU - AL: 38-7 (@AL) vs. aTm: 38-13 (@MSU)

    Average: AL: 36-10; aTm: 36-19

    Same story: Same offense; defense adv. to AL

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Texas A&M

    I think our offense is actually the side of the ball that comes out with something to prove. Assuming everyone is healthy, I think they have trouble stopping our run game at home and when they cheat up, they cannot play our WR man to man. They will score, especially on our tired defense. I'm guessing us mid 30s maybe better, them low 20s. To be safe say 34-21. May not be that close, but CNS will call off the dogs as soon as he feels like it is safe to do so. Hate to credit him, but it's the Lou Holtz thing now; we don't have to be the best team in football, just the best team in the stadium.
