The Aggies are off to a poor start.
Texas A&M is one of many teams sitting at 1-1 after the first two weeks of the college football season. However, the Aggies’ performance is weaker than their record indicates.
A&M blew a 34-point third quarter lead in the season opener at UCLA, and then scuffled through a 24-14 win over FCS Nicholls State last weekend. Head coach Kevin Sumlin’s seat is among the hottest in the country right now.
USA TODAY’s Paul Myerberg released his list of the 10 most disappointing teams in college football, and right now, he has the Aggies at No. 1.
It’s like the majority of Kevin Sumlin’s tenure in reverse: Instead of steamrolling early and fading late, A&M has stubbed their toe right out of the gate. After coughing up a 34-point lead in the opener to UCLA, the Aggies struggled to put away Nicholls State of the Football Championship Subdivision to even their record at 1-1.
Texas A&M should beat Louisiana-Lafayette this week to move to 2-1, but then things get tough. The Aggies face Arkansas, South Carolina, Alabama and Florida in consecutive weeks.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if they have a losing record by the end of that stretch.
