The Texas A&M football team is now 7-3 after a loss to Ole Miss in their Week 11 matchup. This loss is devastating for an Aggie football team that still had College Football Playoff aspirations a few days ago. Now, their chances of even appearing in the SEC Championship Game are virtually impossible.

But not all is lost.

Texas A&M can still play its way into an extremely meaningful bowl game. You’ll see in this article that a strong bowl performance is entirely likely. The Aggies also have a handful of young players that will continue to develop throughout the season, giving meaning to the remainder of 2021.

Which bowl games are the Texas A&M football team projected to appear in after Week 11?

After a small break from the bowl projections, we’re back. Unfortunately, this recent loss has sent A&M back two steps after taking one forward with a big win over Auburn. Still, this team is being projected for some prominent bowl game(s).

  • Jerry Palm’s CBS Sports bowl projections have the Aggies in a New Years Six bowl game, taking on the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Citrus Bowl on New Years Day.
  • 247Sports‘ Brad Crawford also has Texas A&M playing in the Citrus Bowl but has the Aggies facing a different opponent in Kentucky.
  • CFN has the Aggies in the Citrus Bowl as well (I’m noticing a theme), but has them facing Wisconsin.
  • Saturday Down South has the Aggies in… brace for a surprise… the Citrus Bowl against Wisconsin. Very fun!

The positive here is that the Aggies seem like a lock to earn entrance to the Citrus Bowl which, I should note, is different than the Orange Bowl. A&M should win its final two games against Prairie View A&M and LSU, though the latter team on that list could cause A&M some trouble.

Still, the Citrus Bowl is one of the better bowl games out there — it’s one of the bowls that fans still watch. Aggie fans will be familiar with the Citrus-related bowls, as they were the winners of last year’s Orange Bowl. It’s the second-best Citrus, but not a bad consultation for a three-loss season.

A&M can make a statement.
