Alabama opened the season with a 35-10 win over Virginia Tech two weeks ago. The Crimson Tide dominated defensively, holding the Hokies to just 212 yards of offense, but the offense struggled, racking up just 206 total yards. Quarterback A.J. McCarron was only 10 of 23 passing for 110 yards and a touchdown while running back T.J. Yeldon rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.

Texas A&M is off to a 2-0 start thanks to its high-powered offense. The Aggies are averaging 58.5 points and 600 yards per game thus far. Quarterback Johnny Manziel has rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown while going 34 of 49 passing for 497 yards and six touchdowns this season.
