For the second straight week, Alabama finds itself clinging to its No. 1 ranking.
Last week the Crimson Tide needed a last-minute touchdown to defeat LSU, 21-17, in Baton Rouge.
Saturday, Texas A&M ran out to a 20-0 lead in Tuscaloosa before Alabama scored twice to cut the lead to 20-14 at halftime.
A couple of weeks ago, people were wondering how powerful Alabama might fare against an NFL team. It was a ridiculous thought given what's happened to the Crimson Tide the last two weeks.
Alabama was clearly stunned by Texas A&M's up-tempo offense, led by Aggies' quarterback Johnny Manziel, but seemed to adjust after absorbing the initial blows.
