TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama doesn't get a break after rescuing its national title hopes in dramatic fashion.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide hosts No. 15 Texas A&M and its quick, versatile quarterback Johnny Manziel on Saturday.
Bama remained undefeated with a last-minute touchdown against No. 9 LSU a week ago.
Tide left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio (KWAN-jo) says the team faces ``a different animal this week.''
Manziel and the Aggies have already made a big splash in a league that's won six straight national championships. They have taken top 10 teams Florida and LSU down to the wire before losing both games by a combined eight points.
Now, their pedal-to-the-medal quarterback and offense takes on a more vintage SEC football style in smashmouth Alabama.
The Tide leads the nation in scoring defense.
