2020 was a great year for the Texas A&M Football team. Jimbo Fisher officially made his presence known to college football with the Aggies’ best season in recent memory. Last season saw his team finish 9-1, only losing to the eventual national champion Alabama Crimson Tide.

They did, however, beat a pair of top-15 teams in the Florida Gators and North Carolina Tarheels, cementing themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the SEC.

That said, their inability to beat Alabama stained the Aggies’ resume and kept them out of the College Football Playoff in the 2020 season. Things could change for Texas A&M in 2021 though.

Through this point in modern college football, there hasn’t been a team as consistently dominant as the Alabama Crimson Tide have been over the past decade. It has been infuriating for the rest of the league. In fact, the SEC could probably drop Alabama out of the conference and still be the best college football division in the game — that’s how deep it is.

But through their success, nobody has stepped up as a team that can challenge Alabama for the top spot in the SEC on a long-term basis.

We’ve seen teams like Auburn and LSU beat the Crimson Tide before, but neither of these teams has been able to become the powerhouse program in this conference. After a year of success, they drop back into obscurity somewhere in the middle of the SEC.

Here’s why the Texas A&M Football team can turn the SEC on its head, starting in 2021.
