Alabama doesn’t get a break after rescuing its national title hopes in dramatic fashion. The top-ranked Crimson Tide host No. 15 Texas A&M and its versatile quarterback Johnny Manziel today ( 12:30 p.m. on CBS) at Tuscaloosa, Ala. Alabama remained undefeated with a last-minute touchdown against No. 9 LSU a week ago. Tide left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio says the team faces “a different animal this week.” Manziel and the Aggies have made a big splash in a league that’s won six straight national championships. They’ve taken top-10 teams Florida and LSU down to the wire before losing to both by a combined eight points. – AP
