Finally, after knocking on the door the past two years, Kevin Sumlin’s Texas A&M Aggies broke through and moved to 6-0 this past week. It wasn’t easy.

Against a resilient Tennessee Vols team, they needed to force seven turnovers for a double-overtime win after blowing a 28-7 lead. But they were the first team mentally tough enough to handle the Vols’ comeback.

Trevor Knight as a senior is clearly a leader for the Aggies at quarterback. Trayveon Williams gives them a huge element in the running game. And this team is incredibly deep at wide receiver.

Meanwhile, the defense has turned things around now in John Chavis’s second season as defensive coordinator. Even in giving up over 600 yards of offense last week, he was able to get his guys to force seven turnovers. Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall as playmakers are huge assets as well.

So this team is in great shape going into its bye week. Now, they can get healthy and begin their stretch run.

Their season comes down to the first game after that bye, a road match-up against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Coming off the bye gives them a great chance for that win. Then, they have New Mexico State, Mississippi State, and UT San Antonio down the stretch. LSU and Ole Miss would be tough, but they’re good enough to win all five games.

The College Football Playoff is now a real possibility for this team after such a great win.
