TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's defense knows how difficult it is to slow down Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M's no-huddle offense.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide hopes they fare better the second time around in Saturday's rematch with the sixth-ranked Aggies.
Alabama coach Nick Saban wondered aloud last year if these no-huddle attacks are "what we want football to be." The Tide spent considerable time in the offseason better figuring out how to deal with them.
Now, Saban says it's easier for the players to adapt because they see fast-paced offenses so frequently.
Texas A&M's not going to slam on the breaks. Coach Kevin Sumlin says the Aggies are "going to go as fast as we possibly can."
Texas A&M sprinted to a big lead in last season's upset.
