Aggies D, Alabama Offense Pretty Good, Too

COLLEGE STATION (November 8, 2012) -- The hype entering Saturday's game between top-ranked Alabama and No. 15 Texas A&M revolves around the Crimson Tide's dominate defense and the Aggies' prolific offense.

But that only tells part of the story. It overshadows Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore. McCarron is a Heisman Trophy candidate who hasn't thrown an interception. Moore is second in the nation in tackles for losses and tied for second in sacks.

Alabama's offense and Texas A&M's defense might both be a bit underrated, but both teams know these units can't be overlooked.

Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mark Snyder says: "there are no weaknesses" in Alabama's offense.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban praised Texas A&M's defense saying: "they are very, very aggressive."
