Texas A&M vs. Alabama 2012 viewing guide: Previews, TV schedule and more

Matthew Stockman

Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies have their biggest test of the season on Saturday, while Alabama confronts the last real obstacle between them and a perfect regular season. Full Saturday TV schedule here.

The No. 15 Texas A&M Aggies become the latest team to confront the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa on Saturday. The Tide is coming off a close victory over the LSU Tigers, while the Aggies had a dominant win over the Mississippi St. Bulldogs in Week 10.

Following the 7-2 Aggies, Alabama's last two opponents are a combined 3-16. A win puts them in the SEC Championship game, and winning out puts the Tide in prime position for the BCS Title. A.J. McCarron will likely be looking to make a statement. He struggled in the second half against LSU but managed to find T.J. Yeldon at the end of what would be the game-winning drive.

Alabama's dominant defense will be confronting Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Johnny Football will try to keep the tempo as fast as possible against the Tide, who have made an art out of slowly crushing opponents. A&M has managed 600 yards in five games this season, but there isn't much that prepares a quarterback for the Tide defense.

Game time, TV channel: 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS
