Everything you need to know about the Alabama vs. Texas A&M online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.
The No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies will look to stay undefeated in 2015 as they play host to the No. 10 Alabama Crimson Tide at Kyle Field on Saturday.
The Aggies (5-0) are coming off a bye week and are refreshed heading into their biggest test and threat to their undefeated 2015 campaign. While Texas A&M has been getting it done on offense, the Aggies defense can be thanked for this season’s success so far. The pass rush has been tenacious, led by Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall. Texas A&M’s defense ranks in the top 10 nationally in QB sacks (19.0) and tackles for loss (42.0). Saturday’s matchup also marks an important event for the 12th Man as it is just the sixth time the home crowd has seen a top 10 matchup at Kyle Field.
The Crimson Tide (5-1) have won three straight and look to have put their lone loss of the season behind them. Last time out, Alabama outlasted a gritty Arkansas team, earning a 27-14 win. QB Jake Coker threw for 262 yards and a pair of scores, including an 81-yard dime to Calvin Ridley that put the Tide in front for the rest of the game. Don’t forget about RB Derrick Henry, who quietly gained 95 yards on the ground with a touchdown and has now amassed 2,037 yards for his career to rank 17th all-time in Alabama History.
The series between these two programs dates back to the Cotton Bowl in 1942. Alabama holds a 5-2 lead heading into the eighth matchup on Saturday. The Aggies are looking to get revenge after the Tide shut them out, 59-0, in Tuscaloosa last season.

This is a far, far different Texas A&M team that got rocked 59-0 last season, but it’s still not quite there in terms of dealing with an Alabama defense that’s on a mission. Outside of one garbage time Nick Chubb home run, the Crimson Tide aren’t giving up a thing on the ground, allowing two touchdowns to Ole Miss, the Chubb run, and that’s it. It’s not going to be Georgia Game Part 2, but the defense and running game will bail out an inconsistent game from Coker.
