Texas A&M enters Week 9 coming off back-to-back losses to Alabama and Ole Miss. While the season is far from over, the Aggies are now not only unranked in the AP Top 25 Poll, but they are also in their second week of being out of a New Year’s Six Bowl in all eight expert projections.
Texas A&M (5-2, 2-2 SEC) will face South Carolina (3-4, 1-4 SEC) at home on Halloween at Kyle Field, as the Aggies are now desperate to find any sort of momentum going in their favor. Now sitting in the bottom half of the SEC West standings, the Aggies will need to win out the rest of the conference games if they want any shot in competing for the SEC Championship.
