How Nick Saban got "Rat Poison" into the football lexicon

A&M ended a short Alabama possession with DE Jarrett Johnson and DT Zaycoven Henderson slamming Hurts to the turf for a loss, then got the ball at their own 46 after a 19-yard punt.

"As coaches, we want to try to help these guys every way they can improve with the preparation, the right mind-set when you get to the game, understanding the challenges you have when you play on the road".

"There are a lot of things to learn from this". "They learned something when they lost against UCLA".

Alabama entered Saturday having averaged more than 315 rushing yards and almost 510 total yards a game, but the Tide tallied 355 total yards, including 232 on the ground, against the Aggies. "All that stuff you write about how good we are and all that stuff they hear on ESPN, it's like poison". They did however allow Alabama to rush for 232 yards, but that isn't as bad as it seems considering they average 301 rushing yards per game this season.

New skins always attract a lot of attention, and that is a trend that will continue with this year's Halloween event. A user on the game's subreddit showed off the new skins, with some of them seemingly coming from Facebook ads.

Two plays later, the Aggies would give the ball back after Williams fumbled at the A&M 42. "They tried to take Jalen away by bringing somebody at him all the time. If you were to look at it, I was pretty much running around in circles, looking at which way he was going", Kirk said. Alabama ran the ball eight out of ten plays, picking up huge chunks of yardage on a 17-yard pass and catch from Hurts to freshman Jerry Jeudy and a 15-yard penalty on a pass-interference call on A&M in the end zone, which prevented Robert Foster from catching what would have most likely been the game-clinching touchdown.

The Tide had run 638 plays and gone 37 quarters since their last such miscue. Junior defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs racked up 10 tackles, with his previous college career best having been four against Colorado State last month.

Georgia moves up as the 4th ranked team in the country while Auburn holds the No. 10 spot. Alabama has outscored foes by a combined count of 83-9 in the first quarter this season.
