Campaign trail: Texas A&M Aggies

Which teams will make the College Football Playoff? Ultimately, the selection committee will decide. Until then, there will be a lot of campaigning. Each week we'll unveil what we think one team's campaign message should be.

Texas A&M wasn't top of mind for many entering the season, but the Aggies made a statement Thursday night. A road game at South Carolina and a new quarterback could have been disastrous. Instead, Texas A&M's 52-28 drubbing of the Gamecocks launched the Aggies into the national title discussion -- and gave coach Kevin Sumlin something to cheer about.
