Texas A&M-Alabama Prediction

If one is to identify the worst team in the SEC right now, it is one of two teams: Vanderbilt… or Texas A&M. The Aggies made the Sweet 16 last season, but that is a distant memory. They lost to Arkansas and then fell at Kentucky. They fought and tried, but couldn’t find answers. Alabama is not a top-tier SEC team, but the Tide showed in their win over Kentucky a week ago that they are capable of putting together a strong performance, especially at home. The fact that Alabama lost at LSU earlier in the week makes it that much more important or the Tide to bounce back against A&M. The Aggies are catching Bama at the wrong time – the moment is much too urgent for the Tide to be complacent and drift through this contest. Alabama 79, Texas A&M 65.
