COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - The worst defensive performance in the history of Alabama football, at least according to the stat sheet, was no reason for Nick Saban to panic.
Scoring 42 points and putting up 628 yards against the No. 1 team in the country - and losing - was not the way Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin expected the most-hyped game of the young college football season to play out.
Now that it's over, both teams can get back to the seemingly mundane business of playing out their schedules and trying to win a championship or two.
For Saban and his Crimson Tide players, there almost seemed to be a sense of relief that it was over and they had survived another go-round with uncanny Johnny Manziel and the Aggies' prolific offense.
