College football schedule 2012: Texas A&M looks to upset Alabama

Ronald Martinez

The Texas A&M Aggies will try to knock off No. 1 Alabama this Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala., while LSU will host Mississippi State in another SEC West showdown.

The Texas A&M Aggies will try to topple top ranked Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend, while the LSU Tigers will try to rebound from their loss against the Crimson Tide when they welcome No. 21 Mississippi State to Baton Rouge, La., for an SEC West battle.

The Aggies and their high-powered offense will try to keep Alabama from clinching the SEC West title. The Crimson Tide need just one victory over their last two conference games to punch their ticket to Atlanta.

Texas A&M can look to the Crimson Tide's previous game against LSU to try and formulate a gameplan to move the ball against the stingy Alabama defense. The Tigers gained 435 yards on Alabama, including 296 through the air. Johnny Manziel will have to try and replicate those numbers to keep Texas A&M in the game.

LSU will try to atone for its loss against Alabama when it faces Mississippi State Saturday in Baton Rogue. The Bulldogs themselves are coming off a loss last week at the hands of Texas A&M.

Here's a look at this weekend's local college football schedule. All times are Central:

Iowa State Cyclones at No. 17 Texas Longhorns, 11 a.m., Longhorn Network

No. 15 Texas A&M Aggies at No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide, 2:30 p.m., CBS
