Texas A&M basketball is one win away from their first trip to the Elite 8, but first they’ll have to beat Michigan in the Sweet 16. Here’s how they can get it done.

Months of basketball have boiled down to this – Texas A&M is one win away from their first trip to the Elite 8 in program history and two wins away from the Final Four in San Antonio Texas. The Aggies aren’t making reservations on the Riverwalk just yet, but this team is within reach of a massive milestone that has evaded this program thus far.

To get to that final goal they’re going to have to go through the Michigan Wolverines. The upsets which punched holes in every region of the bracket, left the 3-seed Wolverines as the top remaining seed in the West Region. Now, more than ever before, the field is wide open. Texas A&M just needs to win the next game.

Oddsmakers put the Aggies as slight underdogs against the Wolverines, but just about every sportsbook has this as a one possession game. Can the Aggies take advantage of their hot start to March and parlay it into their first Sweet 16 win? Here are three things Texas A&M needs to do to beat Michigan.
