Where are the Aggies going for game 13?

It’s prediction time on where the Aggies go bowling. 9-3 with wins over Mississippi State and Auburn will do wonderful things for the ranking and perception. If the Aggies are 9-2 heading to Baton Rouge, they are probably ranked near No. 15. The Tigers are 8-3 with a loss to Alabama and are probably ranked in the 20’s.

Does a win propel you inside the Top 12?  Maybe, hard to project what’s happening with the rest of college football.  A loss to LSU in Baton Rouge is probably going to happen and more than likely will be very respectable if the game is back and forth. So the Aggies are 9-3, ranked somewhere around #20.

My prediction is the Aggies play 10-2 Michigan State in the Outback Bowl, they last played in this game back in the 2011 season. Texas A&M played in this bowl game when it was called the Hall of Fame Classic in 1978, that year they beat No. 19 Iowa State 28-12. The Aggies are 1-2 against Sparty all time, the losses were in 1934 and 1952. The lone win came in East Lansing in 1959.
