Texas A&M ranked 14th in initial Playoff rankings

It may be a longshot, but Aggies are in the hunt

NCAA Football: Big Ten Conference Media Days Robert Goddin-USA TODAY Sports

The College Football Playoff committee released their initial rankings for the 2021 season on Tuesday evening, and Texas A&M came in ranked No. 14 in the country.

The ranking may be a bit lower than Aggie fans were hoping for, considering there are ranked higher in the two other major polls (No. 13 in AP, No. 12 in Coaches Poll), but the good news, is that there is plenty of college football chaos still to come. For instance:

Add in the unexpected ranked vs. unranked upsets that have been a hallmark of the 2021 season, and A&M is still in a good spot with four games to play. If they can win out and finish 10-2, a second straight New Year’s Six Bowl is within their reach. With a little help (OK, a lot of help), Playoff contention isn’t impossible.
