Coach: Dennis Franchione (3rd year at Texas A&M)
Team Name: Aggies
2004 Record: 7-5
2004 Big 12 Conference Record 5-3
2004 ATS Record: 7-5
Returning Starters: 17

Texas A&M returns seventeen starters overall tied for most in the conference, and this may be Francione’s best team in his 3 year tenure.

In 2004 the Texas A&M defense allowed 24 ppg, much improved from the 39 points per game they surrendered in 2003. With 8 starters returning in 2005, the defense expects to improve once again.

The offense will be good and is lead by senior QB Reggie McNeal. McNeal is a heisman candidate who possesses both exceptional running and passing abilities. Offensive line play will be key, allowing protection for McNeal to throw bombs to a gifted receiving core, as well as opening holes for starting tailback Courtney Lewis to run through.

The Aggies have another tough schedule which includes 4 road games against schools expected to make it post season play. How A&M plays in its final 3 games of the season @ Texas Tech, @ Oklahoma, and home to Texas, will ultimately determine what kind of bowl bid they receive. That being said, should top last years 7 win total and return to a bowl game for the second straight season.
