Aggies D, Alabama offense pretty good, too

COLLEGE STATION, TX (AP) -

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."
