Alabama Game Preview:
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0) at Texas A&M (4-1)
Line: Alabama -26.5
When: Saturday Oct. 7th, 6:15 p.m., ESPN
Site: Kyle Field – College Station, TX
What to Watch For:
Alabama is playing the best football of any team in the country right now. The last two games, the Tide have put up 122 points on their opponents. Texas A&M is better competition than Vanderbilt and Ole Miss but it’s not a great time to catch the Crimson Tide if you’re an Aggie fan.
Look for QB Jalen Hurts to continue his dominance on the ground. He leads the Tide in rushing with 461 yards and is deadly when plays break down. The Aggie defense is yielding 28 points per game so they’ll have to win the turnover battle if they have a chance. Texas A&M’s head coach Kevin Sumlin has been on the hot seat all year long and even though a loss to Bama won’t fire him, a blowout won’t make things any easier.
