Two Johnny Football interceptions and a defense that couldn’t stop the run to save their lives were the difference in the Aggies loss to Alabama. Now the pressure is on Texas A&M and hope Alabama slips up.


A&M has two tough games remaining in games at Ole Miss and at LSU. Fortunately for the Aggies, they have a bye week before each of those games, so they will have extra time to prepare. It would seem another Cotton Bowl is in the Aggies future, but things could change very fast with a little bit of help.
