HOUSTON – After concluding a historic run to end the 2020 season with eight straight wins and a victory in the Capital One Orange Bowl, Texas A&M was ranked No. 4 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll of the season.
It marks A&M’s second-highest finish in the AP Poll and highest since 1939 when the Aggies won the national championship.
In addition, the No. 4 rank is Texas A&M’s second top-five finish since joining the SEC in 2012 and marks the third time in his career that head coach Jimbo Fisher has finished inside the top-five. Texas A&M wrapped up the season on an eight-game win streak, the longest streak by the Maroon & White since the 1998 campaign.
In the regular season, the Aggies went 9-1 against an all-SEC slate as they compiled the most victories against conference foes since joining the SEC for the 2012 season.
It was A&M’s fourth top-five AP finish along with the No. 5 ranking in 1956 and 2012, and the No. 1 finish in 1939, A&M’s lone AP national championship. It was A&M’s 13th top-10 finish in school history.
The Aggies open the 2021 season on Saturday, Sept. 4 against Kent State at Kyle Field.
