My problem with A&M being so cocky over that game, is the fact they were having the game of their life, while Alabama was extremely Ill prepared. They had a 20-0 lead and let Alabama tie the game by halftime. Score ended up being 29-24. That game may have been an arse whipping in the first quarter, but the rest of the game until the last few drives, he was pretty much quiet.
Alabama beat defending NC Florida by 19 points in the SECCG as a revenge game.
Alabama shut out LSU and completely destroyed them from start to finish defensively. 3 touchdown difference in score.
Alabama beat Auburn 36-0 (wasn't a great auburn team though but still a decent record IIRC) after 6 years in 2008.
None of Alabama's revenge games have been close under Nick Saban. None. (well, there was LSU 2010) In fact, they were pretty much blood baths for the opposing team. You can call me crazy, butthurt, ill-informed, and a raging homer. I don't care. Given what I've heard about TAMU's front 7, I expect AJ to light up that defense this time. He sort of did that last game.
It's a fully rested Bama team in the day time vs. a TAMU team that totally imploded at Kyle Field vs. the others of the Big 3. A&M will score somewhat, but Bama will be the offense that goes nuts in this one.
31-17 is my prediction based on what I've heard, looked up, and contemplated.
