On Saturday afternoon, the solid passing attack of the #21 Texas A&M Aggies (5-2) will face the #7 Alabama Crimson Tide (5-1) and their highly-rated defense. Alabama was able to win a close 49-42 game against the Aggies early last season.
After starting the season with five straight wins, Texas A&M has now lost two games in a row after falling to Ole Miss 35-20 at home last weekend. The Aggies outgained Ole Miss 455-338 in that game, but they also had three big turnovers.
The Aggies are currently third in the nation in passing with 396 passing yards per game, and they are sixth in scoring with 43.9 points per game. Quarterback Kenny Hill has been great for the Aggies by throwing for 2,511 yards, 23 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. Hill's top target has been Josh Reynolds, who has 29 receptions for 476 yards and eight touchdowns.
Last Saturday, the Crimson Tide weren't at their best, but they were still able to come away with a hard-fought 14-13 win over Arkansas on the road. They won despite only having 227 offensive yards and going 4-for-15 on their third down chances.
Alabama's offense isn't as good as it was the last four or five years, but their defense is only giving up 15.3 points per game. Quarterback Blake Sims has had an up-and-down season and currently has 1,480 passing yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. Running back T.J. Yeldon has 452 rushing yards on the year with two scores.
