Alabama Steamrolling The Best Teams In The Nation

Alabama is the best football team in the country. And if you have any questions after they dismantled Tennessee last week, remember that the Tide are 11-0 SU and 9-2 ATS in their past 11 games against teams with winning records. Alabama takes on the undefeated Texas A&M Aggies in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Texas A&M is 0-3 SU in its last 3 games against Alabama.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Texas A&M's last 11 games.
  • Alabama is 19-0 SU in its last 19 games.

The Tide are coming off back-to-back road wins against ranked conference opponents in fairly easy fashion. Alabama has one of the best scoring differentials in the nation, outscoring opponents by 30.4 points per game.

The Aggies' rushing attack has been near unstoppable this season, as they have been averaging 274.3 rushing yards per game. Texas A&M is averaging 6.8 yards per attempt while finding the end zone on 19 occasions. Though Trevor Knight is a good runner, he is merely solid when it comes to throwing the ball and the Aggies may be in a bad way if they need him to start slinging it.
