Saban: Texas A&M is the best team Tide will face so far

Saban: Texas A&M is the best team Tide will face so far

Alabama's defense was shutting down Texas A&M.

As Alabama fans remember well, Stallings returned to Tuscaloosa in 1990 after 18 years in the National Football League, leading the Crimson Tide to its first championship since Bryant's retirement. Forget that Alabama put up 66 points against Ole Miss.

"We started off slow", Colorado State coach Mike Bobo said.

"Whatever happened in the hurricane happened and it's a bad thing and we want to support everybody every way we can". "We sort of go on these trips like it's a business trip and that's what we should be focused on". With the Tide backed up at its own 3-yard line, Texas A&M rushed up the gut to block the long-legged punter's kick. Shades of Derrick Henry crushing the Aggie defense in 2015 began to creep into Kyle Field, but the defense stiffened, holding Alabama scoreless on their next three positions.

Forcing turnovers has been a strength for this defense this season.

"He's really unsafe", Sumlin said in a story by Suzanne Halliburton of the Austin American-Statesman. "We try to make it happen for them".

A&M did play Alabama closer than any other team this season. One play in particular stood out.

But it was still enough to get a run on the board. "We're still living down past year " says Wayne Munthe. Sabathia admitted some surprise about being lifted there, but had confidence in the Yanks' bullpen.

Doctson finally made some noise, hauling in a 52-yard landing in Washington's 27-10 victory over the Raiders last week. Nest he faces the quarterback with the fifth-best passer rating through week three in Washington's Kirk Cousins .


Hamilton surprised himself with pole lap
It was very close with Kimi [Raikkonen] but Vettel, poor guy, couldn't qualify unfortunately, but for us a fantastic result. The auto was much better position [than on Friday], but we were something like four or five tenths off the other guys.


Mond finished 19 of 29 for 237 yards with a touchdown pass and interception, and his Alabama counterpart Jalen Hurts finished 13 of 22 for 123 yards and a touchdown.

"My city", Houston native Jalen Hurts said, "is always on my mind". He just has that cool, calm, collected feel to him.

The Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC) sacked Mond four times in all and won the turnover battle 3-1 paving the way for the win. "They run the ball very effectively and they've got really good running backs". "The farther we go into our schedule, we know that the harder it's going to get".

Despite struggling to sack Mond, Alabama had a couple of defensive lineman show out. He cares more about once-in-a-generation defensive tackles and linebackers.

A&M running back Keith Ford has seven rushing touchdowns this season. Daniel LaCamera would convert a 52-yard field goal that just made it over the crossbar, giving A&M a 3-0 lead. "And we certainly did that as much as we could", Saban said. "Their two backs are the best backs that we've played against I think in tandem".

"I feel fine, really", Stallings told Birmingham's WBRC-Fox 6 sportscaster Rick Karle last week. Now he returns home the unquestioned leader of the conference's most prolific offense, an inordinately poised 19-year-old who captivates the older players around him.

Mond had a shaky game against Nicholls State when senior Jake Hubenak took over the last two scoring drives in the 24-14 victory, but the Aggies' young quarterback has taken even snap in the last three games, including Southeastern Conference victories over Arkansas and SC. Next week, the team will face Arkansas. "They're a great team and we respect them a lot". "So we've got to be more disciplined in what we're doing".
