Highly entertaining matchup between undoubtedly the best team in College Football currently where Alabama welcome Texas A&M on Saturday. Can the Aggies keep it close? Check out our NCAAF Pick.
 

 

Kevin Sumlin's side come into this game off a bye having previously beaten Tennessee in overtime whilst the Crimson Tide also annihilated the Volunteers last week. That matchup was a fortunate piece of scheduling for Nick Saban's outfit with Tennessee's momentum and invincible nature being blown up by the Aggies.

Alabama did pulverize the Vol's though with the vaunted Bama defense and special team's combination consequently outscoring Tennessee's limp offense.

The Roll Tide's defense force turnovers and limit damage expertly. That defense combined with a new supercharged, Lane Kiffin ran offense has destroyed opposition defenses for fun.

The Aggies, though, do have a shining light in Trevor Knight having previously defeated Bama and Knight has been outstanding this year. The former Sooner transfer is being backed up by a stellar A&M defense led by potential Top 10 draft pick Myles Garrett. This is a strong opportunity for the Aggies to push the Crimson Tide to the limit.

Personally, Alabama and Nick Saban as a combination isn't a predicament I'd like to back myself into. That being said, with the spread being as high as it currently is at +17.0, that's a situation I couldn't pass on for my college football pick. A&M has a serviceable offense led by Knight and is more than capable of giving Bama's stellar defense enough to handle. And the Aggies D is more than able enough to stay within 10 points, combined with Sumlin's coaching, A&M are more than sufficient to stay within the spread.
