Both the Atlanta kickoff game and the road match at Vanderbilt had plenty of Crimson Tide fans attending, but Texas A&M's Kyle Field was truly hostile to Bama on Saturday night.
Even never-satisfied coach Nick Saban complimented his players for the back-to-back shellackings but he also is cautioning his squad that it needs to be supremely prepared for the Aggies, who have won four straight games.
The former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator was rushed out of the program at the end of past year before the national title game, which Alabama went on to lose.
Hurts accounted for three of the Tide's four touchdowns in last season's 33-14 win against the Aggies, the final a 37-yard scramble in the fourth quarter that eliminated any thought of a comeback for Sumlin's bunch.
Nick Saban was not pleased with his Alabama football team's performance after the Tide went up 24-3 on TAMU.
After the thrashing Alabama put on Ole Miss last week, they are heading into their third consecutive SEC game.
A&M, sparked by causing Alabama's first turnover in nine games, came up with back-to-back scores to pull within 24-12. His line was not physical, could not hold its blocks and could not open holes large enough for the Tide's burgeoning run game.
Hurts passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in the first half of a 66-3 win last weekend over Mississippi.
The Crimson Tide have trailed for only 2:13 this season, all in their season-opening victory over Florida State. "As I said previous year, I wasn't surprised by Jalen's success". The Texas A&M Aggies ground game is averaging 255.6 yards per contest, and Trayveon Williams leads the way with 384 yards and five touchdowns.
The Alabama defense was in the Texas A&M backfield all game, as the on the battle up front.
Outside of that there weren't many big plays, but he helped move the chains and moved Alabama to 6-0 on the season.
Mond led the offense on a 44-yard drive before throwing the ball into double coverage, and Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick picked the ball off at the 1-yard line.
Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts handed the ball off to the running back, who took off on a career-long 75-yard touchdown with 9:46 left in the first quarter.
In fact, the Aggies' strength may turn out to backfire against a player in Hurts who thrives outside the pocket.
Here are five takeaways for the Tide from the game. "And we certainly did that as much as we could", Saban said. "There's a lot that we can learn from", Saban said.
Kevin Sumlin seems to always be on the hot seat, it's been warmed up twice this season already but the Aggies are 4-1 and looking for a colossal upset here. Then the Aggies responded by blocking a punt out of the end zone, giving them two points and another possession to whittle away at the Tide's lead.
