Research Notes

  • The NCAA restored freshman eligibility in 1972. On Saturday, Johnny Manziel became the second freshman quarterback to win a game against the AP top-ranked team on the road. The only other freshman QB to beat the AP's top-ranked team on the road was Oklahoma's Charles Thompson who won at No. 1 Nebraska in 1987.

  • With Saturday's upset at Alabama, Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M are 6-0 on the road this season.In those 6 road games, Manziel has thrown for over 280 yards a game, rushed for over 120 a contest, and accounted for 23 touchdowns - 12 TD passes and 11 rushing TDs.

  • Alabama's defense has allowed 46 points in it's last 2 games after allowing a total of 65 points in its first 8 games combined.

  • * Since the preseason poll came into existence in 1950, only 4 times has the AP No. 1 team faced a top 15 team in three straight regular season games. In 3 of the 4 instances, AP No. 1 lost that 3rd game - and in the lone win - by Miami in 2001, the Hurricanes won by 2AP No. 1 Faced Top 15 OpponentIn 3 Consecutive Regular Season Games, Since 1950 Opponents Final Game Result2012 Alabama 13 MSST, 5 LSU, 14 A&M Lost2008 Texas 11 MIZZ, 7 OKST, 6 TTU Lost2001 Miami 14 SYR, 12 WASH, 14 VT Won <1978 Alabama 10 NEB, 11 MIZZ, 7 USC Lost< Won by 2 points

  • Prior to Alabama's loss to Texas A&M today, AP No. 1 had not lost a November home game since 2007 Both teams to lose at home in November that year - Ohio State to Illinois and LSU to Arkansas - wound up meeting in the BCS Championship Game that seasonPrior to 2007, the last team to lose a November home game as AP No. 1 was Ohio State in 1998 - when they lost to a Nick Saban-coached Michigan State team

  • Johnny Manziel has become the 2nd freshman in FBS history with 2,000 pass yards and 1,000 rush yards in the same season, joining Brad Smith of Missouri, who did it in 2002 (and then again as a senior in 2005).He's the 12th player in FBS history -- in any class -- to go 2,000-1,000 in the same season (including Northern Illinois junior Jordan Lynch, who has already done it this season).

  • The last time Alabama trailed by 14 points in a game: October 9, 2010 vs South Carolina. South Carolina led 35-21 and won by that score.In case today's deficit gets bigger - South Carolina led by as many as 18 points in that game.

  • The 7-0 Texas A&M lead on Alabama is the largest deficit the Tide has faced all season.
