COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Only moments into his postgame press conference, Alabama coach Nick Saban helped put the Crimson Tide's 41-23 win at Texas A&M on Saturday into perspective.

"I know we've got a lot of things we can fix, we've got a lot of things we can do better," Saban said, "but you got to hand it to this team, this is the second team ranked in the top 10 we've beaten on the road in some really tough places to play.

"So I think we've got to respect the competitive character of this team and my hats off to them, they did a fantastic job today. Coaches did a great job, too. Really good job of preparing."

Alabama scored a school-record three touchdowns by way of interception returns (two from Minkah Fitzpatrick, one from Eddie Jackson), while Derrick Henry rushed for a career-high 236 yards and two scores on 32 carries against the No. 9 Aggies.

Two weeks ago, on Oct. 3, Alabama routed then-No. 8 Georgia, 38-10, in Athens, Georgia. The Crimson Tide was ranked No. 10 against Texas A&M on Saturday.

In the video above from BamaOnLine's Denon McMillan, Saban discusses those interception returns and Henry's performance, as well as the status of starting center Ryan Kelly, who left the first half with a concussion and did not return.
