WATCH: CBS Sports panel compares Alabama to Big 12 offense, makes picks for game against Texas A&M
The Alabama Crimson Tide are 3-0 and are looking unstoppable, but they’ll face their toughest test of the season so far on Saturday when Texas A&M comes to town.
However, the Tide are still favored by nearly four touchdowns, and are expected to cruise to a victory.
The big reason for the Tide’s success so far? A high-powered offense led by QB Tua Tagovailoa, but the defense is still elite, too. On Tuesday, CBS Sports analysts Brian Jones, Rick Neuheisel, Aaron Taylor and Randy Cross got together to pick the game.
As you can see below, all four are riding with Alabama to win big on Saturday afternoon:

“It looks like a Big 12 offense,” Randy Cross says at the end of the video. “They’re spreading it, they’re flipping it. Tagovailoa is making some amazing throws. It’s been since 2010 that Saban’s team has started this way. They’re 3-0 and no matter what they’re favored by, they’ve won by at least that. They haven’t done that since 2010 and they’re going to cruise in this one.”
Will that be the case? Tune in to CBS at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday afternoon to find out.
