Alabama In Search Of 13th Consecutive Road Victory

It should not come as much of a surprise but the Alabama Crimson Tide have been really good on the road. In Alabama’s past 12 true road games, they are 12-0 SU and 8-3-1 ATS while averaging 35.2 points per game. The Tide will look to continue their road dominance when they visit the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Texas A&M is 9-2 SU in its last 11 games at home.
  • Alabama is 8-0 ATS in its last 8 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • Alabama has yet to surrender a turnover this season.

Alabama picked up a 33-14 victory over Texas A&M in their meeting last season. Jalen Hurts didn’t have his most efficient outing passing the ball but accounted for 257 offensive yards and three touchdowns.

What is there to be said about ’Bama that has not already been said? The defense is arguably the best in the nation, the offense is putting up some ridiculous numbers and there is little doubt they are the top team in the nation. The Alabama running game has already found the end zone 18 times – accounting for more points than 28 teams in the nation overall. 

It hasn’t always been pretty but Texas A&M is 2-0 in SEC play and 4-1 overall entering Week 6. The Aggies are leaning on their running attack with the team accounting for 255.6 rushing yards per game this year, which is second in the SEC. Freshman quarterback Kellen Mond continues to grow but we will see how he fares against the behemoth that is the Alabama defense.
