A pair of unbeaten teams with so much on the line meet on Saturday as the #6 Texas A&M Aggies meet with the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide.
Not only is the SEC West on the line here, but also the BCS Playoff.
#6 Texas A&M Aggies
The Aggies just continue to find ways to win and will now have their toughest test of the season when they head into Alabama as 18.5 point underdogs.
Texas A&M has passed every early test, which includes a win over the Tennessee Volunteers, as they now have to pull off the giant road upset.
QB Trevor Knight hasn’t been as good as expected, but like the entire team has done this season, he’s doing just enough to secure wins.
Knight has completed just 53% of his passes and is averaging 250 yards per game through the air.
Knight is getting to opposing defenses with his feet. The Oklahoma transfer has 84 rush yards per game and has tallied 9 rushing touchdowns this season.
Look for RB Trayveon Williams to also play a huge impact here. Williams is averaging 9.0 yards per carry this season and has 117 yards per contest.
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide
The Crimson Tide went on the road against a very good Tennessee team and had very little issue with them.
Alabama did what they do best and just wore out the Volunteers as they rumbled for 438 yards. It was evident by the 2nd half that the Tennessee defense was caught with hands on hips and just gassed for breath.
QB Jalen Hurts finished with 132 of those rush yards as he continues to shine in his first year as starter. Hurts has 17 touchdowns in total this season, as he leads an Alabama offense that is averaging 45.4 points per game.
Expect Alabama to use a similar tactic here, as they are averaging 265 rush yards per game and 6.2 yards per carry.
Alabama has won 11 straight games at home.
However, it should be noted they are just 4-7 ATS in that span and laying a big number here could make backers nervous.

Laying a big number here is scary.
18.5 to an Aggies team that has been playing well. However, Alabama has just worn teams out and this is going to be a similar style game like the one against Tennessee.
