Even though the Texas A&M football team has two losses, the SEC remains wide open
As things stand, the Texas A&M football team still does not have control of its own destiny. The two early-season losses after Haynes King’s leg injury continue to hurt this Aggie football team. That said, this weekend made one thing abundantly clear.
The SEC West is wide open.
Okay, technically it’s not WIDE open — Alabama still sits at the top with just a single conference loss. That said, the Tide play two more tough teams and if they lose a single game, the SEC West is up for grabs.
At that point, it’ll come down to tiebreakers.
What this weekend gave us was an Auburn-Ole Miss matchup that leveled the playing field, giving a third SEC team in the Aggies’ division two losses on the year. Texas A&M will have the opportunity to play both of these teams.
If A&M manages to win in both of these games, they could potentially be tied with Alabama atop the division (if the Tide lose). If Alabama picks up a second loss, this would have the two teams tied in terms of positioning. The tiebreaker would go to A&M, who has the advantage with a win in the head-to-head matchup.
The Iron Bowl might be A&M’s best chance at making it to the SEC Championship Game. Let’s hope Auburn has a little bit of magic left in their hat.
