Top-ranked Alabama football overcame an early 14-0 deficit, scoring 28 consecutive points to close the first half on the way to a wild 49-42 victory over No. 6 Texas A&M Saturday afternoon before an overflow crowd of 87,596, the fourth-largest crowd in Kyle Field's 87-season history (capacity: 82,589).
Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron passed for a career-high 334 yards and four touchdowns and the Alabama defense overcame a shaky start to contain A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel for much of the game as the Tide captured its 16th consecutive victory away from Tuscaloosa and its ninth straight win at an SEC road venue. The Alabama offense rolled for 570 total yards (236 rushing, 334 passing) while running back T.J. Yeldon rushed for 149 yards and safety Vinnie Sunseri returned an intercepted pass 73 yards for a score.
