The Texas A&M football program hasn’t won a national championship since 1939. As a member of the Big 12, the Aggies captured only one conference championship (1998). Since joining the Southeastern Conference in 2012, College Station’s favorite sons have finished in the AP Top 25 just three times, twice with Johnny Manziel at quarterback.
In his first season leading the Texas A&M Aggies, Fisher’s team finished the 2018 season with a 9-4 record and ranked No. 16 in the final AP Poll. On top of that, the Aggies landed the nation’s fourth-best recruiting class heading into 2019, according to 247Sports.
It’s safe to say expectations are at an all-time high, especially after Aggie fans saw their squad ranked No. 11 in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll. Despite the hype, the maroon and white haven’t accomplished anything just yet. That’s not stopping Fisher and company from doing everything they can to turn Texas A&M into a perennial College Football Playoff contender for the next decade, though.

Quarterback Kellen Mond is confident, but can he make the jump to elite status as a junior? The SEC’s leading rusher from a year ago, Trayveon Williams, is gone, plus tight end Jace Sternberger and center Erik McCoy made the jump to the NFL. Who steps up to replace these key positions for an offense that averaged 471.6 yards (15th in FBS) last football season?
Questions need answering. Texas A&M fans get their first look with a home game against Texas State in Kyle Field, then things get really interesting — The Aggies travel to Memorial Stadium for a date with the defending national champion Clemson Tigers on September 7.
