Stewart Mandel's Inside College Football

October 24, 2004

Team of the Week: Texas A&M. This is why coach Dennis Franchione gets paid the big, big, big, big bucks--he gets results. With their rousing 38-20 upset of undefeated Oklahoma State in Stillwater, the Aggies, a year removed from a 4-8 campaign and five games removed from a discouraging 41-21 season-opening loss to Utah, are now 5-1. It's just the latest in a series of stops (New Mexico, TCU, Alabama) where Franchione's teams have taken off in his second season.
