Ranking Every Texas A&M Football Season in the SEC: #10 - 2016

Okay, this is the first one that I think will be really controversial. I disliked 2016, as a whole, even more than I did this past year. Let me explain.

2016, by any measure, had a higher high. That win over Tennessee, one of the wildest games I've ever seen, was a top-10 home win in overtime. Lots of excitement! The Arkansas and UCLA games were also pretty action-packed. The Aggies even led Alabama at halftime in Tuscaloosa!

The problem is what came after those games. After October 8, the Aggies' wins consisted of New Mexico State and UTSA. They lost to the aforementioned Crimson Tide (33-14), and had the infamous loss in Starkville after coming in at #4 in the initial CFP rankings the previous week.

How did they follow up that ignominious performance? With a loss to Ole Miss at home, who was starting a backup quarterback. They did beat UTSA the next week... by 13. Then they gave up 285 yards on the ground to Derrius Guice (except that technically is no longer true, according to LSU) in Myles Garrett's final home game.

The Aggies closed the season in Houston, losing to Kansas State in the Texas Bowl: a game that I mostly remember for some Wildcat corner trying to talk trash to Josh Reynolds and getting embarrassed.

Just a stinker of a year.
