The Alabama Crimson Tide heads into practice this week ahead of Saturday’s away game at Mississippi State. The team is just back in Tuscaloosa following a loss on the road to Texas A & M. The unranked Aggies stunned number one ranked Alabama over the weekend with a forty one to thirty eight upset loss. The Crimson Tide dropped from number one in the college football rankings to number seven. Alabama head coach Nick Saban says he hopes the team learns from the loss…

“Everybody needs to remember how they feel, and not forget it,” Saban said. “When I say having the respect for winning, that’s what I mean. You want to avoid the feeling that have when you lose.”

Texas A & M’s Seth Small made a 28-yard field goal as time . That kick and an Aggies touchdown that preceded it sealed the team’s victory over the Tide. Alabama head coach Saban says Texas & M earned the win…

“I’ve got to give Texas A & M credit for how they played, they had a good plan, and the players did a good job of executing it. We certainly moved the ball on offense. They stopped us in the red zone, we turned the ball over on the two yard line.”

After this Saturday’s upcoming Mississippi State game, the Tide returns to Tuscaloosa for its homecoming game against Tennessee. After that, Alabama will have a week off before its next game against LSU.
