Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher is entering his second year as the head man in college station. Expectations are sky high after Fisher signed a lucrative deal over a year ago to come over from Florida State where he enjoyed a national championship following the 2013 season.
His annual success at Florida State made previously made him a highly mentioned candidate to one day succeed former boss Nick Saban at Alabama. Nonetheless he resisted against the temptation and actually chose the route of clashing against the Crimson Tide year in and year out as SEC West foes.
In his first year as head coach of Texas &M Fisher was able to lead the Aggies to a 9-4 record, their best record since 2013 when former Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel was still on campus. Two of their four losses came at the hands of the two teams who faced off in the National Championships, Clemson and Alabama. They also lost two heartbreakers to Mississippi State and Auburn but there’s still reason to believe A&M is definitely headed in the right direction heading into the 2019 season. The loss against Clemson was only a two-point loss and their loss to Auburn was a four point defeat however the Aggies defeated two top 15 teams in Kentucky and LSU.
Texas A&M’s win against LSU showed how much the Aggies have in the tank in order to go the length of the entire season improving. The Aggies defeated the Tigers 74-72 in the longest college football game in history that ended in seven overtimes.
