Alabama-Texas A&M Prediction

The Alabama Crimson Tide have arrived at a moment of truth. They probably felt that after getting blown out at Mississippi State a week ago, they would naturally rebound at home on the weekend against Florida. They did not. They got blown out again. Avery Johnson is very displeased, and he should be. Now Alabama – sagging toward the NCAA Tournament bubble but still a tournament team if the season ended today – has to make sure it doesn’t unravel and play its way out of the Big Dance. A second loss to Texas A&M would begin to make this team sweat. Alabama lost at home to the Aggies a month ago, so this is not only a bounce-back game for the Tide; it is also a revenge game. The stakes are high. I would expect Alabama to regain its footing. It better do so, or else. Alabama 68, Texas A&M 62. (Matt Zemek)
