Bold Prediction No. 4: The Texas A&M football team will go undefeated in November

Last month, I predicted that the Aggies would go 3-1 in the month of October. Sure, I thought they’d lose to Alabama instead of Mississippi State, but I’m the Site Expert around here — I’m allowed to cherry-pick stats whenever it pleases me.

This month, I think Texas A&M can go undefeated and it starts with a game against Auburn, who may be the only two-loss team who could make the argument that they’re better than the Aggies.

The AP Poll voters seem to think so too, as the Tigers are ranked 12th, one spot above the Aggies. I’d argue that this is solely due to the timing of both teams’ wins, as a win over Alabama seems significantly more impressive than one over Ole Miss, but that’s neither here nor there.

If Texas A&M manages to win out in the month of November, they will have done virtually everything in their control to make a run at the SEC Championship game and College Football Playoff.

As mentioned in an article earlier today, the Aggies’ dreams to be selected to either of those things depends largely on the outcome of the Iron Bowl, where Auburn will have a chance to knock Alabama down to two losses.

If Texas A&M is undefeated at that point in time, they’ll get the nod over every other two-loss SEC team. They would have knocked Ole Miss and Auburn down to three losses while holding the head-to-head advantage over the Crimson Tide.

This is huge and entirely possible for a red-hot Aggie football team.
