MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - You'll likely never hear about the Texas A & M defense over it's high-powered offense led by Heisman Trophy winner Johnny "Football" Manziel.
But maybe you should.
The Aggies play in a lot of barn burners, it's true, shoot outs like the 52-31 game against Rice to open the season. But the reality is, especially at Kyle Field, when A & M needs a stop, this unit usually rises to the occasion.
At least Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron thinks so. He explains why the defense is giving up at average of 29.5 points to start the season.
And he says, it isn't for lack of talent.
"They had a lot of guys suspended, so they’re a good defense," McCarron said. "They do a really good job of getting to the ball and holding guys up with the football and then other guys coming in and trying to strip it, and making plays that way. So, taking care of the football is going to the number one thing for us and we’ll have to go a very good job of that."
