SEC Power Rankings: Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida, South Carolina and Georgia All in the Title Hunt

13 of 15

Jul 17, 2013; Hoover, AL, USA; Texas A

3. Texas A&M Aggies

Last Season: 11-2 (6-2)

Key Addition: $$

Key Word: Football


If Johnny Football is allowed to play this season, then Texas A&M wins on the field and at the bank. They are definitively the second best team in the division behind Alabama, and have proven they can beat them head-to-head. And should they beat Alabama again, this time at home, the cash windfall would be enormous.

The Aggies return an excellent offensive line to protect Johnny Manziel, and get another season of Mike Evans for Manziel to throw to. Running back Brandon Williams is a newcomer to watch out for, too.

A weakness the Aggies may have is trying to replace the production of defensive end Damontre Moore, and linebackers Sean Porter and Jonathan Stewart. Given the youth Texas A&M has in the front seven, it could be what kills them against Alabama on September 14.

But if Manziel is cleared to play, it may not matter.
