The Texas A&M football schedule could see a 10-win season for the Aggies.

The Texas A&M football team has a lot to prove in 2020. This coming season, the Texas A&M Aggies are looking at a year in which they need to prove themselves as a team that can shake things up in the Southeastern Conference’s West Division.

But that burden falls mostly on their head coach, Jimbo Fisher, who was brought in to turn the Aggies into a team that could contend for championships.

A&M signed Fisher to an astonishing contract in which the Aggies are paying their head coach $75 million over a span of 10 years. TAMU has already presented Fisher with a trophy commemorating a championship that hasn’t come yet.

After two seasons under Fisher’s guidance, the Aggies have yet to prove that they are notably better than they were before he arrived in College Station.

So far, Fisher has posted a 17-9 record as the head coach of the Aggies. He’s won a couple of bowl games and has beaten the LSU Tigers (something his predecessor failed to do), but overall, the program isn’t considerably better off under Fisher than it was under Kevin Sumlin. Sumlin’s Texas A&M teams averaged 8.5 wins a season. Fisher’s teams (with a smaller sample size) are averaging that as well.

In 2020, A&M will have an opportunity to take a step forward, but that’s easier said than done. Fisher and the Aggies have a very manageable schedule, all things considered, but they still reside in the SEC West. The Aggies are looking to become a problem for the more prominent programs in the division, and here’s how 2020 should go for the Texas A&M football team.
