The Texas A&M Football team will be back to a full 12-team schedule in the 2021-22 season. Unfortunately, the Aggies have a relatively easy slate in the upcoming season, with only two ranked opponents on the docket in No. 16 LSU and No. 1 Alabama. Bleacher Report famously called their schedule a “cream puff buffet” earlier in the offseason, and in a way, they’re not entirely wrong.
Even so, Aggie fans will have the opportunity to watch more than a handful of elite quarterback battles, as the SEC is always home to the country’s best arm talent. As a result, I decided to rank each quarterback that Texas A&M will be playing against in the upcoming season. Here is that list.
Texas A&M Football opposing quarterback rankings: Non-threats
12. Trazon Connley, Prairie View A&M: This game, for all intents and purposes, should be a complete blowout. Prairie View A&M is not a particularly great team within the SWAC conference and their quarterback hasn’t done anything special. That said, their quarterback in Trazon Connley is a dual-threat guy who could cause problems with his legs. You can’t sleep on any quarterback on this schedule.
11. Brendon Lewis, Colorado: The Colorado Buffaloes didn’t have a particularly great passing attack last season and it’s hard to see that change drastically with a 3-star freshman quarterback who won the job due to an injury under center. No disrespect to Brendon Lewis — there’s just not much to be worried about here.
10. Luke Doty, South Carolina: Luke Doty may not even return to the field in time for this game with a nagging injury that will likely keep him out of the Gamecocks’ first couple of games. He also had a terrible season in 2020, though it’s hard to fault him, as he was thrown into a really bad situation. The fact that Shane Beamer is sticking with him shows that there’s at least an ounce of confidence over there. Still, he’s the lowest-ranked QB in the SEC on this list.
9. Terry Wilson, New Mexico: Terry Wilson is a relatively talented quarterback. He transferred to New Mexico from Kentucky and is set to become the team’s starter, where he’ll use his dual-threat capabilities to try and pull an upset against A&M. I don’t necessarily have anything negative to say about him — I just think Wilson will have a tough time fighting through offensive line and wide receiver mismatches all game long. Again, there’s little to be worried about here.
