That was short.
Texas A&M’s College Football Playoff hopes were dashed on Saturday, as Mississippi State upset the Aggies 35-28 in Starkville. The Aggies were No. 4 in the initial CFP poll, released last Tuesday. It was an inclusion met with much controversy, as the Aggies were included over undefeated Washington.
It won’t be a controversy going forward, though. The Aggies will fall from that coveted position after the new rankings are released this Tuesday.
It’s not the only fall, however, for the Aggies. Texas A&M dropped to No. 3 in the SEC Country Power Poll after holding strong at No. 2 over the last few weeks.
The 26-person panel includes voters from SEC Country and cross the nation.
Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 SEC) finishes the season with three home games. That run starts with Ole Miss on Saturday, and ends with Texas-San Antonio on Nov. 19 followed by LSU on Thanksgiving night.
Three victories would give the Aggies their first ten-win season since 2012, their first season in the SEC. Since then, Texas A&M started strong each year before fading late.
This year, Texas A&M looks to avoid a November swoon to reach that ten-win mark, and a marquee bowl that would likely follow.
