Texas A&M Football started 5-4 in 2018, but finished on a four-game winning streak. Will the Aggies build off that success in 2019?
While it wasn’t the start that Jimbo Fisher had hoped for in his first season as Texas A&M’s head coach, the Aggies provided much promise for the 12th Man.
After starting the 2018 campaign 2-2, with losses coming to Alabama and Clemson, the Aggies picked up three-consecutive wins. In those three wins, the Aggies took down two ranked opponents and found themselves in good position to still earn a New Year’s Six bowl game.
However, the Aggies season hit a major speed bump as the dropped back-to-back road games against the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers. Flirting with .500, it was gut-check time for the Aggies.
Texas A&M would finish the season strong with four straight victories, including a seven-overtime thriller against LSU, and a beatdown on NC State in the Gator Bowl.
Carrying momentum into the 2019 season, the Aggies look to not only capture a 10-win season, but to also shock the college football world and pick up a SEC Title and playoff birth along the way. But that will be no easy task for the Aggies as they have one of the toughest schedules in all of college football.
While they play host to Auburn, Alabama, Mississippi State and South Carolina, the Aggies still have some tough road games, including a Week 2 matchup against the defending national champions, as well as finishing the season with back-to-back road games against Georgia and LSU.
Can Jimbo and the Aggies put Texas A&M football among the elite, or will their schedule fare to be too much and end in disappointment?
