The 2014 Texas A&M Aggies won their first five games, but sputtered as the season progressed and finished with an 8-5 record. Texas A&M dealt with numerous changes to the quarterback, wide receivers, and offensive line and was unable to overcome the physical challenges presented by its SEC West foes. Texas A&M was tasked with playing Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Alabama in consecutive weeks, and ultimately dropped all three contests. Texas A&M signature win, however, came on the road against one of its biggest SEC West rivals.  Quarterback Kyle Allen and the Aggies stunned the 3rd-ranked Auburn Tigers, 41-38 at Jordan Hare Stadium. Allen, who replaced Kenny Hill as the starting quarterback midway through the season, threw for 277 yards and four touchdowns against Auburn. Texas A&M’s season ended on a high note when they took down West Virginia, 45-37 in the Liberty Bowl. Allen threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns while junior running back Tra Carson rushed for 133 yards.

After losing Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans to the NFL Draft, many expected 2014 to be a rebuilding season—and it was. Entering the 2015 season, expectations are high for this relatively young roster. Allen is expected to open the season as the starting quarterback, but Hill is still on the roster and could reclaim the job if Allen falters. Most of the skill position players will return and its defense, which has been inconsistent, returns several promising players. True freshman, defensive end Myles Garrett earned second-team All-SEC honors by racking up 11 sacks. Texas A&M’s new defensive coordinator, John Chavis, who was one of the LSU’s top assistants, is expected to fix the defense. Armed with a Top-10 recruiting class, the future is bright for Texas A&M.

The current average price for Texas A&M football tickets is $253.56 on the secondary market. An overview of Texas A&M’s 2015 schedule, which includes home games against Mississippi State, Alabama and Auburn, is presented below:
