The Alabama Crimson Tide (5-1, 2-1 SEC) have not played like their usual selves in the past couple of games as their offense has been struggling to score points. Alabama only scored 17 points in an upset loss to then No. 11 Ole Miss on October 4 and barely escaped with a victory last Saturday in a tight 14-13 win on the road over Arkansas. After that lackluster performance, their ticket prices have dropped a spot in the TiqIQ Top 25 as Alabama football tickets are now the ninth most expensive in college football, currently at an average price of $170 on the secondary market, down 5% over the past week.
Alabama comes into this Saturday’s SEC matchup against Texas A&M as the No.7 ranked team according to the Associated Press as the Crimson Tide will look to give the Aggies its first three game losing streak in nearly three years at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama comes into this game looking for a spark on offense as they will face a top 10 offensive team in Texas A&M, so the Crimson Tide will have to find a way to put up some points as they currently rank 48th in the nation at 33.2 points per game. The Alabama defense has been solid throughout theff season and ranks sixth in the country, giving up just 15.3 points per game as the will get another crack at one of the top offenses in the league. In Alabama’s lone game this season against a top 10 offensive team, they limited West Virginia to just 393 yards of total offense as the Tide are holding opponents to just 227.2 yards per game, which is the third best in the country.
Alabama holds the all-time series 4-2, but the visiting team has won the past two meetings since Texas A&M joined the SEC.
