College Texas A&M

Unsurprisingly, Texas A&M falls to Alabama, 33-14

Texas A&M Aggies Alabama Crimson Tide football NCAA college

Is anyone really surprised that Texas A&M fell to Alabama on Saturday? Yes, the Aggies have been having a stellar season – but it’s the Crimson Tide. They’re the champions of college football. They’re bigger, stronger, and more athletic than any other team. They’re ranked No. 1. So, yeah, A&M’s loss wasn’t much of a shocker.

The Crimson Tide had some errors on offense, sure. Luckily for them, their defense is so dominant, they can afford to be imperfect elsewhere. The star of the game was defensive lineman Jonathan Allen. One of his best moments in Saturday’s matchup was his takedown of A&M quarterback Trevor Knight. Allen dodged running back Trayveon Williams skillfully and landed Superman-style on Knight, flattening the quarterback on third down. He also completed his second touchdown of the season – and the Tide’s 12th non-offensive touchdown overall.

Overall, Trevor Knight probably had his worst game of the season on Saturday. He was sacked five times by Alabama, which had nine quarterback pressures. Allen had four of those. The guy is a beast, and we’ll be seeing him in the NFL soon, no doubt.

There isn’t a whole lot to say about the game. The result was expected, and it probably won’t change the direction of either of these teams’ seasons. Texas A&M lost to the top-ranked team in the country, and there’s no shame in that.
