No. 2: 1919

The 1919 Texas A&M football season was a perfect year for the Aggies. The Aggies were completely unstoppable and were certainly very good at stopping their foes. Over 100 years ago, Texas A&M went 10-0, claimed a national title, and shut out every single opponent that it faced.

The Aggies started the year with an absolute statement victory over Sam Houston State. While SHSU has always been far from being a notable opponent, this was certainly especially true at the time. Still, A&M beat down Sam Houston State 77-0 to get the 1919 season started.

Dana Bible’s team continued to dominate clearly inferior in-state foes as the Aggies reeled off wins against Texas State, Southern Methodist University, Howard Payne, and Trinity by a combined score of 98-0. In an era that lacked offensive innovation, A&M had no issue scoring on foes and winning with ease.

That continues as A&M beat Oklahoma State 28-0 and Texas Christian University 48-0. It wasn’t until the Aggies faced Baylor that someone held the Aggies to 10 or fewer points.

A&M was only able to muster a total of 24 points over its final three games of the season, but given how good the Aggies’ defense was, A&M was able to get three wins to finish off the season, ending the year undefeated. A 10-0 win over Baylor, a 7-0 win over Southwestern, and a 7-0 win over Texas completed a perfect 10-0 season for A&M.
