ESPN: Is Texas A&M A College Football Playoff Contender?

The Worldwide Leader is asking if the Aggies can contend for a College Football Playoff berth.

Kevin Sumlin needs to win this year.

Texas A&M's athletic director has made that very clear, even going on ESPN's Paul Finebaum Show on Tuesday to discuss the Aggies' season.

"Coach [Sumlin] knows that he has to win and he has to win this year and we’ve got to do better than we’ve done in the past,” he told Finebaum.

Will they win, though?

ESPN is asking if Texas A&M is a legitimate College Football Playoff sleeper.

The answer: No, not really.

The Aggies have too many question marks at the quarterback position and on the defensive front to contend for a playoff spot. Texas A&M is probably an 8 or 9 win team at best.
