TUSCALOOSA, AL (AP) - Alabama doesn’t get a break after rescuing its national title hopes in dramatic fashion.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide hosts No. 15 Texas A&M and its quick, versatile quarterback Johnny Manziel on Saturday.

Bama remained undefeated with a last-minute touchdown against No. 9 LSU a week ago.

Tide left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio (KWAN-jo) says the team faces “a different animal this week.”

Manziel and the Aggies have already made a big splash in a league that’s won six straight national championships. They have taken top 10 teams Florida and LSU down to the wire before losing both games by a combined eight points.

Now, their pedal-to-the-medal quarterback and offense takes on a more vintage SEC football style in smashmouth Alabama.

The Tide leads the nation in scoring defense.
