Ruggs then capped the drive with an 8-yard touchdown reception on a pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts to put Alabama ahead 24-3 with 11:01 remaining in the third quarter.

Through five contests, Hurts has carved up defenses for 461 rushing yards and 4 TDs on the ground. Just to be sure, Tyrel Dodson earned a sack the old-fashioned way in the second quarter while the pocket collapsed around Hurts. Despite starting six freshmen and two sophomores, A&M seriously challenged No. 1 Alabama. The Aggies held an Alabama offense that averages 46 points per game to just 27 points.

Will the Crimson Tide's domination continue? Harris continued to be Alabama's most consistent runner Saturday with 124 rushing yards on 14 carries, busting a 75-yard touchdown with 9:46 to play in the first quarter.

The last couple of years Texas A&M has entered the Alabama game unbeaten and nationally ranked.

Conversely, the Aggies' suffered their first defeat since losing their season opener, 45-44 against UCLA. At that point, it appeared as if Alabama was on its way to another blowout victory.

There has been bad blood between these two teams since the Aggies, being led by Johnny Manziel, beat the Tide in 2012.

"I feel fine, really", Stallings told Birmingham's WBRC-6 sportscaster Rick Karle last week. Hurts is better this season at throwing the ball down the field on extended plays. Texas A&M never looked intimidated by the Tide and they never backed down. And they hadn't turned over the ball in 34 quarters, a streak dating back to November 24, 2016 against Auburn (a streak that ended at 36 after Robert Foster's third-quarter fumble). Stallings, 82, also played for the Aggies in the 1950s and was a famed "Junction Boy", in addition to coaching Alabama to a national title in 1992.

Overall - B: It wasn't pretty, and certainly will reinforce Tide head coach Nick Saban's criticism of his top-ranked team, but a win's a win and Alabama remains undefeated.

Even though that may be Alabama's only current win over a top 25 team (compared to Clemson who has three such wins), the dominance of the team wearing crimson and white has not disappeared since that opening game.

If A&M wants to upset the Tide, then they're going to have to deploy schemes that create separation from the Alabama D. If not, they will be reduced to taking shots downfield.

"With a freshman quarterback, it's on us as receivers to go out there and make those catches for him", Kirk said. Saban said. "This is a different Texas A&M team".

The Aggies would scratch a little closer when a blocked punt in the end zone resulted in a safety, bringing the score to 24-12 with 10:18 to play in the game. "We've got to have a plan that gives our guys a chance".
