Texas A&M may have lost 33-14 on Saturday, but it did come at the hands of the top-ranked team in the nation in Alabama.
Because of that, the Aggies’ latest bowl projection by ESPN remains unchanged, slating them to play in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
Edward Aschoff of ESPN writes that Texas A&M may not be out of the running to make the College Football playoff, but it definitely can’t afford another loss in order to do so.
ESPN projects 10 SEC teams to be playing in bowl games, including Alabama in one of the New Year’s Six bowls in the College Football Playoff. Check out the full list below:
