Selection Snapshot: Texas A&M Aggies

Texas A&M have defied expectations in their first year in the SEC, and now have their sights set on a marquee conference bowl. The Aggies feature Heisman front-runner Johnny “Johnny Football” Manziel, and are the only team so far this year that can say they’ve beaten Alabama. If not for close losses to Florida and LSU by just eight points combined, College Station and the 12th Man would be preparing for a trip to the Georgia Dome, with an eye towards Miami.
