2-2, 4th in SEC - West

Ideal win for Alabama. Controlled the game, but Texas A&M moved the ball well enough that it may calm the chatter about the Crimson Tide being unstoppable. After all, it's still September.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Alabama is doing what it always does: Using its talent advantage across the field to wear its opponents down. Since the Aggies closed the gap to 21-13 late in the second quarter, the Tide has outscored them 24-3.

With 3:24 left before halftime, Texas A&M had to feel good about the way it played the first half against Alabama. But the Crimson Tide used the final three minutes to break the game open, going from a one-score lead to 31-13. Alabama gets the ball to start the second half, too.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

He flies under the radar, but tight end Irv Smith has become a really nice piece in an Alabama offense that's struggled historically getting the tight end involved on any kind of consistent basis. Not that the Tide needed more weapons on offense, but still.

A&M DB Wilson ejected for 2nd time this season

Texas A&M's Donovan Wilson was ejected Saturday for targeting. It's the second time he's been ejected this season and the second time he's been ejected against Alabama in his career.

Jimbo Fisher has praised Kellen Mond for his poise, resiliency and ability to make plays, and that was evident on the first scoring drive. Mond made something happen on his 54-yard scramble and made a good read to Jace Sternberger on the touchdown throw.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Talk about a nightmare start for Texas A&M as Kellen Mond throws an interception on the second play of the game. Alabama turns around on first-and-10 and Tua Tagovailoa drops a dime to DeVonta Smith for a touchdown. Not how Jimbo Fisher drew it up.
