Since leaving the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference in 2012, Texas A&M has made its serious against the University of Alabama quite competitive.

After a 29-24 victory over the Crimson Tide in 2012 and taken the school through a 49-42 shootout during the following season, the Aggies have tapered off some – especially with getting thumped 59-0 in 2014. 

Last year, Texas A&M held a 14-13 lead over Alabama until the Tide pulled away late to earn a 33-14 win. Head coach Nick Saban is 4-1 in his meetings versus Aggies’ head coach Kevin Sumlin; however, a four-game winning streak has Sumlin very confident this weekend. 

With freshman quarterback Kellen Mond growing and the interior of the defensive line improving, Texas A&M has another opportunity to pull a huge victory at home.  

Yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine joined Mark Rogers TV on Wednesday, to break down the fifth contest in this series. Rogers and I update Alabama’s injury list and dive into some important keys to victory for the Aggies on Saturday via ESPN.
