After a 5-0 start to the 2015 season the Aggies would stumble down the stretch and go 3-5 in their final 8 games, ending the year with a 8-5 record. 4 of the teams 5 losses cam at the hands of fellow SEC teams (Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and LSU). Their 5th and final loss came in the Music City Bowl 27-21 to Louisville.
Losing Tra Carson to the NFL will hurt but that just means RB James White will have to take in a bigger role this season if the plan on competing in the SEC. Also, with Kyle Allen headed to Houston, QB Kyler Murray will have to take over the offense.
