What did Nick Saban think of no domination in College Station?

What did Nick Saban think of no domination in College Station?

Yes, that second-half collapse at UCLA in the opener was a four-alarm fire.

Coughing up a 44-10 lead and losing 45-44 in Pasadena meant the Aggies immediately dropped off the radar, and not many have noticed that they have won four straight, including Southeastern Conference victories over Arkansas and SC in the past two weeks.

A&M, sparked by causing Alabama's first turnover in nine games, came up with back-to-back scores to pull within 24-12.

The 1967 Aggies defeated the Crimson Tide in the Cotton Bowl, a bonus to their first SWC title since 1956 under then-coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. Good luck catching him napping on an opponent.

"And we certainly did that as much as we could", Saban said. I'm going to fire you and then I'm going to whip your ass for getting fired. Nick Saban has time to make this team better. The way college football is right now, people are very prolific at scoring a lot of points. You have to throw the ball.

Former Texas A&M and Alabama head coach Gene Stallings was honored at halftime of the Aggies' game against Alabama at Kyle Field on Saturday night.

Proof that Texas A&M senior running back Keith Ford keeps grinding even as he's going down was on his elbow this week, in the form of a massive, blood-red turf burn.

Here's the problem for Texas A&M - freshman QB Kellen Mond just isn't ready for this.

"I'm trying to get our players to listen to me", Saban said.

Sam Ehlinger made his third start at quarterback for Texas on Saturday night.

The Crimson Tide rolled through their first two games of conference play, outscoring their opponents 125-3. Daniel LaCamera would convert a 52-yard field goal that just made it over the crossbar, giving A&M a 3-0 lead.

With 461 yards on the ground through the month of September, last years' SEC Offensive Player of the Year ranks third in the conference in rushing yards behind only John Kelly of Tennessee (494) and Nick Chubb of Georgia (480).

Even with DE Da'Shawn Hand out with an injury, the line continued its dominance against the run.

"Obviously, there's a relationship there with the family", Sumlin said Wednesday.

Still unranked, the Aggies have a chance to grab the spotlight when they take on top-ranked Alabama in College Station, Texas on Saturday.

Damien Harris led all rushers with 124 yards on 14 carries. That's not how good teams play. "The farther we go into our schedule, we know that the harder it's going to get". "So we've got to be more disciplined in what we're doing". Texas A&M had three points from a lone field goal already.

"Cleaning up communication, that type of thing, has been helpful", Williams said of the stellar pass protection. Jalen Hurts is completing 64 percent of his passes for 747 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Alabama needed only four plays to cover 43 yards. But Harris rushed for only a net of five yards in the second half, Alabama, which had been averaging more than 300 yards rushing per game, gained 232 against the Aggies.
