Texas A&M's downfall ultimately came in its inability to defeat the SEC's best. It collected strong victories versus Vanderbilt (56-24) and at Ole Miss (41-38) and also took care of business against Arkansas (45-33) and Mississippi State (51-41), but couldn't defeat the teams that finished ahead of it in the standings. It lost a marquee shootout with Alabama (49-42), dropped a contest with eventual SEC champion Auburn (45-41) and closed out the regular season with back-to-back road losses at LSU (34-10) and Missouri (28-21).
