This is the fourth piece of a 12-part series previewing Arkansas’ 2016 football opponents.
Texas A&M is coming off an 8-5 year capped by a 27-21 loss to Louisville in the Music City Bowl. The Aggies went 4-4 in SEC play, finishing fifth in the western division.
They were one of two SEC teams to lose their bowl game, with the other being Florida.
Texas A&M travels to Auburn for its SEC opener the week prior to playing Arkansas at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Sept. 24. The following week, the Aggies travel to South Carolina.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Texas A&M is projected to win 7.5 games. Offshore sportsbook 5Dimes is not too far off from that, making the Aggies’ over/under win total 8 when it released SEC win totals last month.
The FPI also has Texas A&M at No. 14 in the country, which is sixth in the SEC and fourth in the SEC West.
