Condition No. 3: The Texas A&M football team needs to play flawless football
Let’s say everything in the previous slide happens — the Aggies win the SEC Championship game and there are no undefeated teams remaining in college football. Do they make it into the four-team College Football Playoff?
Not exactly. Allow me to explain.
Even if the series of small miracles happened that allowed the Aggies to be heavily considered as the first two-loss College Football Playoff team, Texas A&M would have a handful of one-loss teams considered for the spot over them.
Even with just a single loss, they were snubbed last year, so we know that the College Football Playoff Selection Committee has no love for Jimbo Fisher’s team.
The only way that Texas A&M can overturn this feeling is by playing undeniably the best football of any school in the country for the next few weeks. I’m not just talking about winning out — the Aggies would have to look like 2019 LSU for the next few years.
In that respect, they’re off to a great start with blowout victories in each of their past two games with a close win against Alabama three weeks ago.
That said, the only close victory that the Texas A&M football team can afford for the remainder of the year would be in the SEC Championship Game against an undefeated Georgia team.
The Aggies’ chances of making the College Football Playoff may be slim, but there’s a chance.
