3. Texas A&M football will win 11 games in 2022

This might be the boldest take of the three, however, there is a path for this. The young stars on this team can make this happen, and if Fisher can get great play out of one of his quarterbacks, 12 wins on the season is achievable, maybe even likely.

Out of the four non-conference games, the most difficult is clearly against Miami. That will be a big matchup, however, the Aggies’ defense should be able to handle a Miami offense that doesn’t have a clear star at a skill position. Obviously, there’s more to it than that, however, I think the defense will be too much for Tyler Van Dyke regardless.

With those wins, that means they need to win seven more games in the year. This gives about one loss leeway for the Aggies. Say they drop a game against the Crimson Tide, and they pick up wins against currently unranked teams (MSU, SC, Florida, Auburn, and LSU). This now puts them at 9-1 with three regular season games remaining.

They can drop any of those three and finish the regular season at 10-2. Assuming Alabama runs away with the West again, this means the Aggies miss out on the SEC Championship game. However, they still get a bowl game. A win there, and boom, 11-win season.

Before you start roasting me in the comments, this is essentially best-case scenario for the Texas A&M in 2022. These are bold predictions, and there is a path to these happening. Whether one of these, all of these, or none of these happen, it’s going to be a fun season in Aggieland.
