The Texas A&M football team continued their hot streak on Saturday, winning their third consecutive game. The Aggies took down a solid South Carolina team in their most dominant win of the year.
This sent them up three spots in the AP Poll from No. 17 to No. 14. Once again, the Aggies benefitted from the losses of a few teams that stood above them in the Week 8 AP Poll. This means that Texas A&M is officially back in the top-15.
To take it a step further, the Aggies now have six wins on the year. This means that they’re officially bowl-eligible for the 2021 season. Last year, Texas A&M played in the Orange Bowl — what will they get this year?
Which bowl games are the Texas A&M football team projected to appear in after Week 8?
As things have gone in the past few weeks, the Aggies are continuously proving themselves to the college football world. Last week, the primary favorite opponent for Texas A&M was a 7-0 Michigan State team. Have things changed this week?
- Jerry Palm’s CBS Sports bowl projections have the Aggies taking on a 20th-ranked Penn State football team in the Outback Bowl on New Years Day.
- CFN’s bowl projections have Texas A&M taking on Virginia in the Taxslayer Gator Bowl on December 31st.
- 247Sports has the Texas A&M football team set to take on the Michigan Wolverines in the Citrus Bowl on January 1st.
- Sports Illustrated didn’t change, with the Aggies set to take on the Michigan State Spartans in the Outback Bowl.
The Aggies’ positioning improved in most analysts’ eyes, though a projection for Texas A&M to face off against Virginia in the Taxslayer Gator Bowl seems like an odd choice. This seems especially disappointing as CFN had the Aggies set to take on a top-ten Michigan State team in the Outback Bowl a week ago.
Hopefully, Texas A&M keeps adding tallies to the win column. In turn, this would keep them in the range of bowl games like the Citrus Bowl.
For now, we can only sit back and watch the Aggies. With a bye week ahead, things might be shaken up out of Texas A&M’s control.
