8. Texas A&M
The Aggies come in at number 8 for the 2021-2022 season as Jimbo Fisher looks to lead Texas A&M to the College Football Playoff for the first time in school history. The Aggies came up just short this year, although I felt they deserved the nod over Notre Dame. A&M returns star RB Isaiah Spiller but loses their veteran QB in Kellen Mond.
If it weren’t for the question mark at QB, the Aggies would likely be a top-4 team headed into next season. If they can find a consistent and reliable QB, they have playoff potential.
