Moving on into the 2015 NCAA Football Week 7 we find that the South Eastern Conference rivals of No. 8 Crimson Tide of Alabama 5-1 (SEC West) is playing the No. 9 Aggies of Texas A&M 5-0 (SEC West) on Saturday the 17th of October 2015 with the game being played at the Kyle Field in Texas with kick-off scheduled for 3:35 PM ET.
If you’re in for a taste of the SEC, this game has the answer as the Crimson Tide is on the road playing the Aggies. Alabama after losing their opening game to Ole Miss, they have played winning football, as they now have won 3 consecutive games and all by double digit scores, however the Aggies may be trouble for the Tide.
For those that Bet on College football at a sportsbook and are fans of the 5-1 Crimson Tide of Alabama, your teams defense kept them in this game in the 1st half, and then in the 2nd their offense began to click and in the last 17 minutes of the game they manages scoring some 24 points to win the game against the Razorbacks of Arkansas 27-14.
Alabama in the 1st half of that game could not seem to get started as they managed only a field goal in the 1st half of the game. Thus their defense led by LB R. Ragland gave a great performance to keep the Tide close in the game defensively, with a QB sack and 2 hurries as he forced a fumble and had some 8 tackles in total. Adding to that were LB’s Evans and Williams who each were credited with a sack plus DB Jackson had 1 intercept. The Tide defense expects to take part in some important turnovers in this game, because the Aggies in their 1st five games have a total of 6 turnovers losing possession of the ball.
The Tide QB J. Coker in the first half of the game with Arkansas was intercepted on 2 occasions, but still finished the game completing 22 of his 33 pass attempts for 264 yards and 2 TDs. Thus this game with the Aggies can be troublesome for QB Coker, as the A&M has only allowed opponents to 192 yards passing to date.
Offensively the running game with RB D. Henry at the lead could bring some big advances, as in Arkansas game he carried the ball 27 times for 98 yards and set a record with a TD in 11 straight games. The experts seem to think if the Tide is to beat A&M they could do it with their running game, as the Aggies have allowed their opponents to have 183 yards rushing in each game to date in 2015. In their latest 4 road games the Tide has won 4 straight.
If you like the 5-0 Aggies of Texas A&M remember your team had a off week during Week 6 but recouping from a strenuous game where their offense exploded in the 1st half and the defense kept them in the winning column in the 2nd half to beat Mississippi State 30-17.
In the 1st quarter of that game their QB Allen passed for 2 TD’s, a 1 yard TD to Jones and a 29 yard TD to D. Ratley while RB Carson ran for a 1 yard TD in the 2nd quarter which game the Aggies the 24-10 lead at halftime. The problem the Aggies had in the 2nd half of that game was they could not seem to get into the end zone for a TD. QB Allen completed 25 of his 41 passing attempts for 324 yards while RB Carson carried the ball some 25 times for 115 yards.
What will be interesting to watch in this game is hoe the Aggies passing offense plays against the superb Crimson Tide defense that has only allowed some 186.7 yards passing in each game to date. That Tide defense has made 8 interceptions this season, thus meaning the QB Allen will need to be on target with his passing game.
On the defensive side to the Aggies, they have one of the better pass rushing teams in the SEC, as in their 1st 5 games they accumulated 19 sacks to date. Their leader is DL M. Garrett who has 7 sacks, while D. Hall has 5 sacks, as they come up against the Bama offense line which has only allowed 7 sacks in 2015. Lately the Aggies have won 5 consecutive home games.
The experts predict that superior play by Aggies QB will give Texas A&M a big win over the Crimson Tide.
