Alabama puts yet another football game in a choke hold

You've seen the Tide do this before.

Remember Alabama-Texas A&M? It was an offensive explosion and really fun and compelling and great? Well, Alabama did the thing it always does, and put this game to sleep, and that's exactly the way that Nick Saban likes it.

The Crimson Tide only increased their lead by one touchdown in the third quarter, but the threat of A&M coming back is minimal. Alabama's running game has gotten back on track after a bit of a sketchy start, and this 73-yard interception return by Vinnie Sunseri took the air out of what was a raucous Kyle Field:
