Vols, Aggies still alive in playoff race

Yes, Alabama is the playoff favorite among SEC teams, but Tennessee and Texas A&M are emerging as the biggest threats to the Crimson Tide. Eliminator

Texas A&M leads the SEC in rushing through four weeks, averaging 269.3 yards per game and 7.04 yards per carry. Since joining the SEC, the Aggies are 28-1 in games they rush for 180 yards or more and they're 12-15 in games they rush for fewer than 180.

Aggies among CFB's 'other guys'

Texas A&M is among a group of teams crashing the College Football Playoff picture in what Ryan McGee is calling the "The Rise of the Other Guys." These teams are a rung below the big brand names that can and will push them in the playoff hunt.

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis, who was Les Miles' defensive coordinator for six seasons at LSU, told ESPN.com Monday that he sensed toward the end of his tenure that power brokers were plotting to force Miles out as head coach. "It's always sad to see a man and a coach the caliber of Les get pushed out," Chavis said. "He's a Hall of Famer and a legend in the state of Louisiana. I was blessed that he gave me an opportunity to coach at a place like LSU, but I can't say I'm surprised that he's gone. They were trying to fire him when I was there, and I told him so." Chavis saw a similar situation unfold at Tennessee when future Hall of Famer Phillip Fulmer was fired in 2008. Chavis, one of the most respected defensive coordinators in the college game, left LSU for Texas A&M following the 2013 season. He said his issues were never with Miles, but that he didn't trust the LSU administration.

September provides CFP answers but leaves questions, too

The season's first month taught us that Bama is still the best, Louisville is legit and Houston has hope, but heading into October, there are lingering College Football Playoff questions.

Arkansas and Texas A&M are long gone from AT&T Stadium following their game Saturday night but the grounds crew is hard at work in the wee hours changing the field for the NFL game Sunday night in this very stadium as the Dallas Cowboys host the Chicago Bears.

Breaking down Texas A&M's runaway victory against Arkansas (2:27)

One of the biggest areas of weakness through three games for Texas A&M was their third-down offensive efficiency. Well, they excelled in Saturday's 45-24 win over Arkansas in that regard. The Aggies were 8-for-12 on third down. Trevor Knight, who was abysmal on third down in last week's win over Auburn, was 4-for-6 passing for 39 yards and ran three times for 162 yards and two touchdowns on third down. That'll win you some ball games.
