Texas A&M finished in 4th place in the West Division of the SEC with a record of 7-5 and won two of their final three games but ended the regular season with a 30-42 loss on the road against the LSU Tigers.

 

Jimbo Fisher never lived up to the expectations the Aggies had for him when they hired him as the head coach for Texas A&M and after a little under six seasons as the head coach in which he compiled a record of 45-25, he was fired as the coach.

The success of the Cowboys this season can be attributed to their passing offense as they enter this game averaging 257.25 passing yards per game. Alan Bowman played a pivotal role in the success of the passing offense as he enters this game having completed 270 of 452 attempts for 3,058 yards with 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
