Tuscaloosa, Alabama: Population 91,605.And everyone of them will be wearing crimson red when an invading Johnny Manziel leads the resilient No. 15 Texas A&M Aggies into Bryant-Denny Stadium in hopes of dethroning No. 1 Alabama. The Crimson Tide have history on their side when playing the Aggies, owning a 3-1 record with the last game being a 30-10 win back in 1988. Stacking the deck even more against A&M, Saturday's game will be the Aggies' third consecutive road game. But don't be fooled to think that the Tide will simply roll over the kids of College Station. A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has his team believing and buying into his system that has produced a top 10 rushing attack and 4th in points scored, averaging 44.7 per game.So lets get bold:1) Manziel, or Johnny Football, as he has been referred to, will be the star of the game.  Alabama's defense is tops in the nation allowing only 9.1 points per game but Manziel will put them to the test with his passing and rushing abilities. Johnny Football has already passed for 2,527 yards with 16 TDs and has rushed for 922 yards with an additional 15 TDs on the ground. Manziel will likely finish with 275 yards passing with one passing TD and an extra 90 yards rushing with two short rushing TDs.  2) With those three TDs by Manziel, and the addition of a couple field goals, the Aggies will score the most points that Alabama has allowed all season long. The LSU Tigers scored 17 against the Tide last week and at the moment, that is the most points Alabama has allowed.However, I do believe A&M's offense is in sync and will surprise all in T-Town with their ability to move the chains, keep their offense on the field and score points.3) Dare I say it (type it)? A&M WILL MARCH INTO ALABAMA AND UPSET THE TIDE! This is that immovable object that finally gets moved by the unstoppable force. In a time when Alabama believes they have jumped their biggest hurdle and are home free, here come the Aggies to stun and spoil an undefeated season. A&M has what it takes and many believe they can.  Final Score:  Texas A&M 27, Alabama 23.
