Texas A&M’s once-promising season is circling the drain.
A week after being upset by Mississippi State, the Aggies blew a 21-6 second-half lead to Ole Miss and lost to the Rebels, 29-28. To add insult to injury, Texas A&M was beaten by Shea Patterson, a true freshman who had his redshirt pulled before Saturday’s game.
Texas A&M is in a tough situation with starting quarterback Trevor Knight’s season-ending injury two weeks ago. Jake Hubenak threw for 213 yards on 16-of-27 passing with two touchdowns and one interception, but he lacks the dual-threat quality that made Knight so dangerous behind center.
Understandably, the Aggies dropped in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll. Texas A&M fell from No. 3 to No. 5 in the latest voting.
The 26-person panel consists of voters from SEC Country and across the nation.
For the fourth consecutive year, Texas A&M won’t reach ten wins in the regular season, but with two games left, the Aggies could set themselves up for that tenth win in a bowl game.
The Aggies host Texas-San Antonio this weekend, before closing the year with a Thanksgiving-night game against LSU.
But in order to win both those games, Kevin Sumlin will have to find the November magic that’s eluded him the past few seasons.
