Last season, Texas A&M catapulted into the spotlight blowing through the competitors in 12 straight games. They ended their season 11-2, which was impressive due to their newcomer status in the SEC.
Following an intense 45-33 win over Arkansas last week, TAMU gets their first bye week in over a year. When asked about the upcoming break, head coach Kevin Sumlin said he believed...

The Dri4Heisman campaign was set to launch for Kent State jack-of-all-trades Dri Archer. Unfortunately, Archer hurt his left leg on the opening drive for Kent State. After running it out on the sidelines, the Doak Walker (best running back) Watchlist nominee returned on the next drive.

Texas A&M returned a Heisman winning Quarter Back in Johnny Manziel and he leads an offense that averages almost 50 points per game. They survived autograph gate and after the first month of the season are 4-1 and ranked 9th in the nation.
