The season started incredibly for Texas A&M, winning 5 straight to start the season and scoring over 50 points on three separate occasions, but back-to-back losses to the two Mississippi powerhouses, Ole Miss and Mississippi State, preceded a 59-0 blowout loss to Alabama to give the Aggies their first 3-game losing streak since Sumlin took over the team.
Kyle Allen will get his first start of the season against LA Monroe in an inter-conference game, the Aggies last before a Week 11 game against Auburn.
