TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It's back to reality for the No. 1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday afternoon. Last weekend's thrilling win over LSU now behind them, it's on to the task of facing No. 15 Texas A&M with a shot at clinching the SEC West crown.

"It's going to be key to our success," UA quarterback AJ McCarron said of the potential to wrap up a date in the conference title game. "You always want to be at the top of your own conference and finish out strong in the bowl game. Like I said, it's going to be a tough game this week. It's definitely not going to be a pushover. We're going to have to come out ready to play and jump on them early."
