The Alabama Crimson Tide are set to visit Kyle Field in College Station, Texas for an SEC clash against the Texas A&M Aggies. The Alabama Crimson Tide come into this matchup with a 5-0 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent home game against the Ole Miss Rebels, 59-31. QB Tau Tagovailoa had a big game through the air for the Alabama Crimson Tide as he connected on 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 418 yards and 6 TDs. WR DeVonta Smith had a huge game for Alabama as he hauled in 11 catches for 274 yards and 5 TDs.

The Alabama Crimson Tide struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Ole Miss Rebels as they allowed them to score 31 points and rack up a total of 476 yards of offense. Junior DB Xavier McKinney led the way for the Alabama defense with 13 tackles. Sophomore LB Christopher Allen was able to get into the Ole Miss backfield a handful of times as he contributed 1.5 TFL while senior DB Jared Mayen hauled in an interception.

The Texas A&M Aggies come into this matchup with a 3-2 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent game against the Arkansas Razorbacks, 31-27. QB Kellen Mond led the way for Texas A&M as he connected on 23 of his 35 pass attempts for 251 yards, 3 TDs, and an interception.

The Texas A&M Aggies struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Arkansas Razorbacks as they allowed them to score 27 points and rack up a total of 395 yards of offense. Junior DB Keldrick Carper led the way for the Texas A&M defense with 10 tackles. Junior DL Justin Madubuike had a productive game for the Aggies as he racked up 5 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 sack, and the lone interception of the game.

The Texas A&M Aggies have already gotten a taste of top-level play as they faced the Clemson Tigers and the Auburn Tigers thus far, but the Alabama Crimson Tide have yet to be tested. The Aggies are an improved program under Jimbo Fisher and the development of QB Kellen Mond has been apparent. The Alabama Crimson Tide have an abundance of WRs who could make plays for one of the best QBs in the nation, but the question is will their ground attack consistently keep the defense honest. Texas A&M has been very good on the defensive side of the ball this season as they have allowed an average of 17.8 PPG which ranks 20th in the country. The Aggies have had two weeks to prepare for Alabama and on top of that Kyle Field is one of the toughest places to play at in the country. Final Score Prediction, Alabama Crimson Tide win but fail to cover ATS 31-24.
