Texas A&M enters Week 7 coming off a bye week, and as it did in the AP Top 25, the week off didn’t do much to heighten or dampen the media’s expectation of the Aggies as the dark horse pick to win the SEC.
The No. 9 Aggies will host No. 10 Alabama on Saturday at Kyle Field. If the Aggies can somehow find a way to beat the Crimson Tide, expect more of these experts to have them playing in a New Year’s Six bowl game next week.
Here’s a roundup of all the updated bowl projections after Week 5 involving the undefeated Aggies:
