Summer blockbuster: No. 1 Alabama gets rematch with Johnny Football and sixth-ranked Texas A&M

The last blockbuster of the summer is set in Texas.

No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 6 Texas A&M. Johnny Football trying to derail the Crimson Tide dynasty. Who is the hero and who is the villain depends upon your perspective.

The Tide (1-0) and Aggies (2-0) meet Saturday in the most anticipated and talked about game of the young season.

Last year's 29-24 victory propelled A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel to the Heisman Trophy. For the Tide, the loss was a detour on the way to a second straight national championship. Saban's team is trying to become the first to win three straight titles. The Aggies have championship aspirations, too.

Texas A&M was expecting a crowd of around 50,000 at the stadium for yell practice Friday night.
