The NCAA football season is well under way and at only week 3, there is already a national buzz surrounding the upcoming SEC match up between the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas A&M Aggies. Last season, the Crimson Tide won the BCS national championship and the only blemish on their otherwise perfect record was a loss to Texas A&M.
