1. College Football News Preview 2020: Texas A&M Aggies Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
This slot machine is WAY overdue to payoff.
On the list of programs that should have a whole lot more to show for their efforts than they currently do, Texas A&M is at or near the top. It has superpower upside but without the results.
That’s why Jimbo Fisher was brought in a few years ago to take over, and it’s why he was given a ten-year contract. The whole idea was to build up the program into another Alabama, and then LSU went off and had the 2019 season that A&M fans have been waiting for.
The better comp for the 2020 Aggies is 2019 Minnesota. Last year’s Gophers were fine, the coaching was good, and there were plenty of nice pieces in place, but the key was a squishy-soft early schedule that led to a nice big base of wins.
Is Texas A&M as good as Alabama this year? No.
It is as good as Auburn, LSU, Georgia or Florida? Probably not.
That’s okay. The Aggies don’t have to play the Bulldogs or Gators, they get LSU at home, and eight of the first ten games are against teams that didn’t go bowling last year.
Five of the first eight games are against teams with a new head coach.
Set The Texas A&M Aggies Regular Season Win Total At … 9
Going to Auburn and Alabama is tough, and don’t blow off how hard it might be to get through Mississippi State and South Carolina on the road.
Again, though, LSU is at home, there are seven games on the slate that have to be locks for this to be a great year – Abilene Christian, North Texas, Colorado, Arkansas (in Arlington), Ole Miss, Vanderbilt – with the dates against the Gamecocks and Commodores from the East being a relative break.
Expect a blip along the way to a 9-1 record with at Alabama and LSU to close. It’ll be late November, and it’ll all be there for the taking.
