Texas A&M ended the first year of the Jimbo Fisher era on a high note, taking down LSU in seven overtimes, 74-72. Let's take a look at where the Aggies are projected to play in a bowl game in December.

The Aggies finished with an 8-4 mark and a 5-3 record in the uber-tough SEC West. Texas A&M lost four tough games - to Clemson, Alabama, Mississippi State and Auburn.

In terms of pecking order, the Aggies sit behind Alabama, Georgia, Florida, LSU and Kentucky. They're likely headed to a second-tier bowl game as a result.

ESPN's analysts differ on where the Aggies could be headed. Kyle Bonagura has Texas A&M taking on Oklahoma State in the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl in Houston.

Mitch Sherman, meanwhile, also has the Aggies playing against Oklahoma State - but in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis.

If that were to be the matchup, Texas A&M would be a solid favorite. Oklahoma State was wildly inconsistent this past season.

We'll know Texas A&M's actual bowl destination on Sunday.
