Just one week ago, Aggies fans everywhere were writing off the A&M football season, making excuses, and dreaming about "what might’ve been."
But now, after the surprising upset of Alabama, is there new life for the Aggies in the College Football Playoff landscape?
Chances aren’t good, but were they really that great before losses to Arkansas and Mississippi State? A&M had wins over Kent State, Colorado (barely), and New Mexico. Not necessarily a great resume for inclusion in the AP Top 10, much less the Top 5.
Then with the two conference losses, all hope was lost. The team is inconsistent, the offensive line is young and inexperienced, and the quarterback position is iffy at best.
