The Texas A&M football team has had an extremely exciting offseason. The Aggies already secured the greatest class in the history of college football and hired a new defensive coordinator — there’s been no lack of action. Even as recently as this week, new drama has been stirred up in relation to Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC.

At this point in time, however, it’s time to start moving forward and looking at the 2022 season.

No. 3: vs. Miami Hurricanes

On paper, Texas A&M should beat Miami pretty easily in one of the better non-conference early-season matchups this season. The Hurricanes will have a new head coach after a 7-5 finish last season.

That said, this is still The U. It’s a strong program that has some of the best talent in the country, meaning this one could get ugly. I think the Aggies will win this game, but you’ll probably lose some hair watching this. Both teams will be still be getting the rust out in their third games of the year but with a win, A&M could build a lot of confidence moving forward.

No. 2: @ Auburn Tigers

Last season, Texas A&M invited Auburn to its home turf and sent home the Tigers with frowns on their faces. The Aggies didn’t just win, either — they embarrassed Auburn, limiting the ranked Tigers to just three points on the night and sending them into a four-game losing streak.

Again, this should be a win for the Aggies on paper, but Auburn will be out for revenge. Bryan Harsin could make some noise in his second year as head coach, as Auburn still has one of the most talented rosters in the country.

No. 1: @ Alabama Crimson Tide

I really don’t even need to elaborate much here. Until Texas A&M wins the SEC or makes the College Football Playoff, their yearly matchup against the Alabama Crimson Tide will be the most important game of the year. Last year, the Aggies took care of business — can they do it twice in a row?

The Tide will likely be one of the top-ranked teams in the AP Poll, as per usual, and own as much talent as any team in the country. This will be another dogfight — only this time, the Aggies will not have home-field advantage.
