Mac Jones launched his first pass far to John Metchie III for a 78-yard touchdown strike.
It was most definitely a sign of things to come.
Jones passed for a career-high 435 yards and four touchdowns, including a pair of deep throws to Metchie and an even longer one to Jaylen Waddle, and No. 2 Alabama romped past No. 13 Texas A&M 52-24.
Briefly threatened early, Jones and the Crimson Tide flexed their considerable big-play muscle in the passing game to put away the Aggies.
For a team once known for running the ball, Bama aired it out.

Texas ran out of comebacks against Max Duggan and TCU.
The Horned Frogs quarterback ran for the go-ahead score with 4 minutes left and the defense made it stand with a goal-line fumble recovery to beat No. 9 Texas in a game that had 26 penalties and ended with TCU taking a safety to run out the final seconds of a 33-31 victory.
In doing so, the Horned Frogs dealt another tough blow to the Big 12′s College Football Playoff hopes now that Texas and Oklahoma, the league’s highest-ranked teams at the beginning of the season, each have early home losses to unranked opponents.
