Get ready for a Pac-12 vs. SEC Challenge! Oh wait, not yet.

In a game that could affect both the conference and national title races, Oklahoma State (3-0) will travel to Texas A&M (2-0) Saturday. Brandon Weeden, the nation’s leading passer with 384.7 yards per game, has helped the Cowboys offense collect 157 points and average 601 yards per game, a mark that ranks second in the country. Leading the Aggies, however, Ryan Tannehill holds a 72.3 completion percentage and has yet to be sacked behind the A&M line.

For the first time ever, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M will meet with both teams ranking in the Associated Press top 10. The Aggies lead the series, winning 17 of the previous 28 meetings, but the Cowboys took the 2010 game with a 38-35 thriller in Stillwater, Okla.

#20 Texas A&M Aggies: College Football 77 in 77

It’s very rare that the college football program which happens to be dominating media headlines also gets featured in the 77 in 77. But that’s coincidence coupled with fact that maybe I’m underrating the Texas A&M Aggies.

Ok, so here’s what we know- the SEC did not officially extend an offer to A&M. However, the University did meet and officially vote to explore leaving the Big 12. Right now they’re a decent size fish in a medium pond. But if they get what they want, they could become fish food in the ocean.

Anyways, here’s the latest:

the outcome of the meeting signaled the A&M-to-the-SEC talk will not die anytime in the near future.

According to multiple media outlets, the regents unanimously voted this afternoon to give President R. Loftin Bowen permission to “take action on conference alignment.”  Translated into English, that means Loftin has been given official permission to pursue a move from the Big 12 to the SEC.  The next step in the process — provided there are no legal obstacles that still need to be navigated — will likely be for Loftin to officially approach the SEC regarding A&M’s interest in becoming a member of the conference.
