5. Corey Pullig (1992-1995)

Corey Pullig is a name several people will probably have forgotten about, but he holds the distinction of being the winningest quarterback in A&M history, both by number of wins (33) and win percentage (.825). With a record of 33-6-1, he ranked in the top 10 of every measurable stat in the old SWC in his years as a starter. Pullig’s wins were generally against unranked teams while the Aggies were ranked in the Top 25.

Conversely, the team lost to most ranked teams they faced. In eight games verses top 25 teams the Pullig Aggies went 3-5, with wins over No. 20 Stanford in Anaheim in the Pigskin Classic (a game in which Pullig saw limited time), No. 20 Louisville at home and No. 14 Michigan in the 1995 Alamo Bowl.

Pullig did do one thing no Aggie quarterback has done since – he lead the team to an undefeated conference record in three consecutive seasons, going 7-0  in 1992 and 1993 and 6-0-1 in 1994. An undefeated conference record is a feat very few Aggie teams have reached before or since, nevermind doing it in consecutive seasons.

The team played in three bowls under Pullig (they would’ve played in four after an undefeated 1994 campaign but probation kept the team from being able to compete in the post season), losing two Cotton Bowls to Notre Dame and winning the 1995 Alamo Bowl.
