Comments

Texas A&M will be the best opponent Alabama has faced so for this season. Maybe Duke is about an equally talented team. This is a game where a predictor might be tempted to project a huge upset. However, with Bama having a bye week coming off an un-Alabama like 59-31 win over Ole Miss, that is very unlikely to happen.
