Texas A&M lost to AP No. 1 Clemson, 24-10, on Sept. 7 and fell 47-28 to AP No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 12.

The good news here is the road gets much less steep next season. The home-and-home with Clemson is over and A&M trades Georgia for Vanderbilt as their SEC East rotating opponent, leaving them with just Alabama, LSU and Auburn.
