Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE
Special teams are always underrated until they win or lose a big game. If the Aggies are going pull off the upset of the year, they will need a miraculous performance from their special teams.
Some would argue freshman placekicker Taylor Bertolet making all of his attempts would be miraculous. He has struggled mightily in recent weeks and Texas A&M's confidence in the kicking game has plummeted.
It would not be surprising to see Texas A&M take some chances on fourth down in common kicking situations to try to mask that glaring issue.
The Crimson Tide, on the other hand, will need to consistently pin Texas A&M deep in their own territory in order to keep points off the board and win the field position battle.
If Alabama does what they do best and executes well, the Aggies will have to play perfect to win in the house that Bear built.
