Texas A&M football is in big trouble. After a 41-24 loss to Florida, Jimbo Fisher’s squad dropped to 3-6 on the season, and now need to win each of their final three games to finish the year to qualify for a bowl game, something the Aggies have done in every season since 2008, though the Aggies didn’t play in a bowl game in 2021 due to the pandemic.
Their remaining schedule contains a road trip to Auburn followed by home tilts against UMass and No. 7 LSU. Needless to say, that’s not ideal! Here are three reasons Texas A&M won’t reach the bowl eligibility threshold.
As mentioned, the Aggies have two conference games remaining, and neither are likely to be very easy. Auburn seems rejuvenated following the appointment of Carnell Williams as interim, and Jordan Hare Stadium is never an easy place to play regardless of how good or bad Auburn is in a given year. Expect a close game here.
UMass should be the easiest of the three, and you can pretty much pencil in a W there for the Aggies, almost no issue. So at the absolute worst, you can expect Texas A&M football to finish 4-8.
LSU is the big test. It comes at home, sure, but this is an LSU team that has impressive wins over Ole Miss and Alabama, and could be looking to punch their ticket to Atlanta for the SEC Championship. That’s not an easy place to be in for the Aggies, but rivalry week almost always gets weird, so who really knows.
