Alabama vs. Texas A&M score

Alabama fans cheer after the Alabama Crimson Tide defeat the Auburn Tigers at Bryant Denny Stadium

Alabama coach Nick Saban knew Texas A&M is the most hard team it's faced so far this season, and in the first quarter of Saturday's game, Aggies quarterback Kellen Mond reminded him why.

Moving Texas A&M up to Alabama's 15-yard line, Mond threw a touchdown pass to Jace Sternberger to tie the score at 7 with just shy of five minutes left in the first quarter. And for the fourth time, they didn't need him to as they pulled off another dominant win, the latest a 45-23 victory over 22nd-ranked Texas A&M. The Aggies were doing a great job against the run in the first half, but as the game wore on, suddenly those routine Damien Harris runs were becoming explosive plays of 20 yards or more and short passes to wide receivers like Henry Ruggs that were getting wrapped up after a few yards became long touchdown plays. The good news for Texas A&M fans is that losing to Clemson in a Week 2 game the Aggies almost won, you should have good reason for optimism, as facing Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence offers numerous same challenges Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts present.

The offense will claim most of the headlines from this game, but Saban was able to point to several areas where his team could improve, mainly regarding the defense. He said he wanted reporters to write stories about everything that Alabama was doing wrong so that he could hold it up to the team as motivation.

On the plus side, the unit harried and harrassed Aggies quarterback Kellen Mond to the tune of seven sacks and 10 hurries, and it came up with two big turnovers: one from Mack Wilson on the second play from scrimmage, the other from freshman cornerback Patrick Surtain Jr.

Prior to that, Lajmi had been bed-ridden for six months and had been undergoing dialysis every other day, according to Scroll.in. Lajmi was admitted to the (Kokilaben Dhirubhai) Ambani hospital, when she breathed her last at 4.30 am on Sunday.

But after going three-and-out on their next drive, Mond and the Aggies eventually responded. We're not used to Alabama putting up almost 50 every time it takes the field, but we should be used to the defense squeezing the life out of teams and that hasn't changed.

Alabama, the nation's No. 1 team, continues its quest for back-to-back national championships when Texas A&M and new coach Jimbo Fisher visit Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

He is also seeking the first win by a Saban assistant. So let's assume Texas A&M plays the ground game well.
