After a hot start from the Texas A&M Aggies at College Station, Alabama has recomposed themselves and pulled the score even at 14 a piece early in the second quarter. The first touchdown strike came when quarterback A.J. McCarron hit a beautiful back shoulder through to Kevin Norward and McCarron hit another perfect throw to complete the 14-point run.

The Crimson Tide dug deep for the score to draw even by using a flea flicker to catch the Texas A&M defense off guard.

Wide Receiver DeAndrew White was six yards behind the Aggies defensive backfield, when McCarron put the ball perfectly in his bread basket to finish off the 44-yard touchdown.

It’s been a wild start to the game between Alabama and Texas A&M and it’s great to see the match up living up to the hype. Often times, the games can be duds when there is this much interesting coming in to the game, but these two teams are delivering and we still have plenty of time left to go.
