I’d like to start out this article with a simple statement — the Texas A&M football team would need a miracle to make the College Football Playoff. Actually, that statement isn’t entirely true. Texas A&M would need a series of miracles to make the College Football Playoff.
Gig’em Gazette’s Bradley Connelly already did a post on what would have to happen for the Texas A&M football team to go to Atlanta. The post is from prior to the Week 8 college football action, but most of the same stipulations apply now.
Today, we’re taking it a step further and exploring what would have to go down for the Aggies to become the first two-loss team to ever make an appearance in the College Football Playoff.
Condition No. 1: The Texas A&M football team would have to win the SEC Championship game
Call me a pessimist, but I don’t believe for a second that the Texas A&M football team could make it as a two-loss College Football Playoff team without winning their conference championship game. Again, just for the Aggies to reach Atlanta would take a small miracle — winning against an unbeatable-looking Georgia team would be a challenge of its own.
Without the SEC Championship win, Texas A&M wouldn’t have a strong enough resume to be selected — at least from what we’ve seen in the past.
But just for a second, let’s say the Aggies are able to pull off both of these things. What else would have to happen?
