Ball Security: The Secret to Beating 'Bama?

No. 1 Alabama has scored 11 non-offensive touchdowns in 2016. If No. 6 Texas A&M hopes to become the first team in 19 games to beat the Crimson Tide, they'll have to take care of the football unlike any of Alabama's opponents through 7 games of play in 2

No. 1 Alabama is on an incredible roll defensively so far in 2016. Through seven games, the Crimson Tide have scored 11 non-offensive touchdowns, and have 18 since the middle of October, 2015. 

No. 6 Texas A&M fell victim to Alabama's destructive defense a year ago, throwing three interceptions that were returned for touchdowns. The Aggies know that if they want to have a chance of snapping Alabama's 19-game win streak, they have to take care of the football.

Interestingly enough, the only team to beat Alabama since the start of 2015, Ole Miss, did not allow a non-offensive touchdown to Alabama. Could that be the secret to beating the Tide? KAGS' Colin Deaver explores that theory.
