In 2014, the Aggies came into Tuscaloosa 5-2 and the Crimson Tide destroyed any lingering hopes of a major bowl berth, putting A&M through a 59-0 Blitzkrieg. Hurts is better this season at throwing the ball down the field on extended plays.

-DE Isaiah Buggs should see more reps with Da'Shawn Hand sidelined.

Like Payne, Hamilton has also recorded 23 tackles to share the team lead.

-QB Kellen Mond appears to be getting more comfortable with each game.

Texas A&M is unranked and still trying to live down its epic collapse in its season-opener at UCLA. He rushed for 70 yards on 12 carries with a long run of 17 yards against SC.

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

-DE Landis Durham has stepped into the hole left by the departure of Myles Garrett from last season's defense.

"This is by far, I think, the strongest team that we've played to this point all the way around", Saban said. "They run the ball very effectively and they've got really good running backs". The Alabama-Texas A&M matchup has been a showdown of top-10 teams in three of the past four meetings.

The Alabama coach was addressing the media about their upcoming game against Texas A&M this Saturday when he was asked about plans for this weekend's road trip for players from the Houston area. The Crimson Tide have generally ended up beating the Aggies, but the hype is always there.

The Crimson Tide's cornerstone left tackle will face a tough task as he aims to neutralize a Texas A&M defense that ranks second in the FBS with 20 sacks. "We'll see what happens Saturday". The most recent impressive performance came when the Tide won by 63 points against Ole Miss. He passed for 159 yards and ran for a team-high 95 in the win over SC. Even though he has split time in the backfield with Keith Ford, Williams is the sixth leading rusher in the SEC with 384 yards and has reached the end zone in every game he has played this season.

"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.

The Crimson Tide, of course, beat the Rebels 66-3 last Saturday night.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, have done exactly what they said they would do with their recruits.

"But if we don't go out there and play a good game, then we're going to have all the problems that we had with the hurricane and we're going to have the problem that we lost".

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

Nick Saban has proven that he is not afraid to open the season against a top school from a Power Five conference almost every year.
