Found July 16, 2013 on Fox Sports Southwest:
Alabama has won the last two BCS national titles, but that isn't good enough for the Crimson Tide. Those championship seasons each had one blemish. They want perfection. Last season's stunning home loss to Texas A&M still stings in Tuscaloosa, and they're using it as motivation. There's no doubt the Tide have Sept. 14 circled on their calendars when they travel to College Station for the rematch. Alabama's weight room. They have the A&M game playing on every TV as well as the A&M logo on the weight stations. pic.twitter.comoaKr9hnbQZ Taylor Travis (@TaylorTravis15) July 16, 2013 Alabama was No. 1 when quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Aggies came to town last November and shocked the Tide in a 29-24 upset. Manziel's dazzling performance helped him become the first-ever freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. No one gave Manziel much of a chance against 'Bama's stout defense, but they'll be sure to be ready for him this time around.
