Four weeks into the 2016 season and a team has emerged — at least for now — as a possible threat to Alabama in the SEC.
Texas A&M disposed of another SEC West foe on Saturday, sprinting past Arkansas in the second half with one big play after another in a 45-24 victory.
The poll consists of 22 voters, including ones from SEC Country and around the nation.
The Aggies (4-0, 2-0 in SEC) play at South Carolina on Saturday before Tennessee travels to College Station for a huge matchup around the midpoint of the season.
But it’s nowhere near as big as what Oct. 22 could be.
After a bye week following its game against Tennessee, Texas A&M meets top-ranked Alabama in Tuscaloosa on Oct. 22.
It will be the first time QB Trevor Knight has faced the Crimson Tide since he led his former team, the Oklahoma Sooners, to a 45-31 win against Alabama in the 2013 season Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.
But that’s jumping ahead, there’s plenty of important football ahead for the Aggies to keep them from looking ahead to that showdown.
Check back next week to see the Week 5 installment of the SEC Country Power Poll.
