Relax, Alabama: Team thrives with looser mind-set

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama coach Nick Saban wanted his team to lighten up. Play loose, have fun, stop fretting so much about those burdensome expectations surrounding the program.

If it seems like odd advice from the man known for intensity and a fierce scowl, the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide responded with a pristine, dominating performance that was easily the team's most impressive of the season.

Alabama (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) didn't commit a turnover or a penalty in Saturday's 59-0 demolition of then-No. 21 Texas A&M. The Tide jumped three spots in The Associated Press Top 25 as a result.
