Alabama Football: Big test on the road

Alabama Football will have to defend the run better against a Texas A&M offense that features a solid running back trio in junior Amari Daniels, former Alabama commit Le’Veon Moss, and true freshman Reuben Owens, a consensus 5-star recruit. If Bama can limit A&M’s yardage on the ground, it would play very favorably into the Crimson Tide’s hands.

The Aggies boast an extremely talented receiving corps and a veteran quarterback in Max Johnson. Wideouts Ainias Smith, Evan Stewart, Noah Thomas, and Moose Muhammad III are all big-play threats. Tight ends Jake Johnson and Max Wright are notable weapons as well.

Next. Not the time for O-Line shuffling. dark

Still, if A&M is forced to live or die by the arm of Max Johnson, I’m betting on an Alabama secondary that is truly elite and a pass rush that has developed into one of the nation’s best.
