Nick Saban Shares Lessons Learned From Time His Girlfriend Dumped Him

Nick Saban Shares Lessons Learned From Time His Girlfriend Dumped Him”

Lane Kiffin might have given up his petty shots at Nick Saban and Alabama. The Aggies' offensive sequence at the end of the half was messy clock management and gave Alabama an opening, although UA didn't take advantage of it. The current streak began with a win over Colorado on December 30, 2007, in the Independence Bowl.

Alabama football is, for the most part, emotionless.

While it looked much more serious at the time, Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported Tuesday that Hand sprained his MCL and will be out for three games. The Alabama Crimson Tide haven't lost a road game since October of 2014. Nick Saban will have plenty of material. He has the most tackles for loss on the team, with four, 3.5 of which came in the season opener against Florida State, a performance that led to his being named SEC Defensive Player of the Week.

Alabama's defense against Texas A&M's running game. The first team All-American has already made 11 plays over 20 yards this season, one of which was a 100 yard kick return against Arkansas. Alabama is outscoring opponents by an average of 37.6 points per game and outrushing them by 241.8 yards on average.

The Aggies are 0-4 in their last four games against the Crimson Tide.

Jalen Hurts is heading home with the nation's top-ranked team and a track record that comes as no surprise to Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin. His previous high was four, which he set in the Colorado State game on September 16. The Crimson Tide shellacked Vanderbilt 59-0 and blasted MS 66-3 in the last two games.

No. 19 Texas A&M extended its winning streak to five against the Alabama Thursday night at Ellis Field with a 2-0 win over the Crimson Tide. Alabama was last held off the scoreboard in a 9-0 loss to Auburn on November 18, 2000. But the reminder Alabama isn't going to be ideal every single time out against talented opponents came at an appropriate time, even though it's doomed to go utterly unappreciated.

Hurts has run the offense with precise efficiency.

Hurts hasn't thrown an interception this year or in his last 169 attempts dating back to last season's Auburn game. The same thing happened in the Manziel years, too; he just made enough fantastic individual plays to balance out the rough spots.

The time will be for players like Ford, who has two or more rushing touchdowns in three of the Aggies' five games this season, and Alabama sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts to strut their stuff. Want him to run? He added on another, this time passing to freshman Henry Ruggs III, bringing Hurts to 48 combined passing and rushing touchdowns. He completed 13 of 22 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

Hurts will worry about visiting after the game. The Tide average 315 rushing yards per game. If A&M can't shore things up with its SEC-worst pass defense, look for Hurts to show how far he's come as a passer early and often. The streak is now the third-longest in school history behind AJ McCarron's 291 attempts in 2011-12 and Brodie Croyle's 190-attempt streak in 2005. P.J. Fitzgerald (2006-09) is Alabama's career leader with 238 punts. I think his demeanor lends itself to him being successful - he's never too high and never too low.
