The Texas A&M football team has always been one of the among the better teams in the country. That said, there hasn’t been consistent, sustained success in College Station in a few decades. The team will knock on the door, but never walk in.

This is evident by looking at the fact that they’ve finished in the top five twice in the last decade, but only finished ranked in the top 25 in four of those ten years. This is a program that is capable of contending, they just need to stay near the top.
