After settling for a pair of field goals in the first quarter, Alabama finally found the end zone in the second quarter.
Crimson Tide QB Jalen Hurts found tight end O.J. Howard for a five-yard touchdown connection to give Alabama a 13-0 lead against Texas A&M. But it was no walk in the park for Howard, who took a massive hit as he was battling his way across the goal line.
