Texas A&M vs. Alabama: Series History, All-Time Records, Wins

The Texas A&M-Alabama football series does not go as far back as some of the rivalries in the SEC but has become one of the most anticipated games of the regular season over the last few years since the Aggies joined the SEC beginning in the 2012 season. The Crimson Tide doesn’t lose very often under Nick Saban, so when it does happen, people take note. As division foes, these programs now meet annually with no love lost.

Series History

The Aggies and Crimson Tide have met 15 times, with the Tide holding a 12-3 edge in the standings. The first meeting was in 1942 in the first of two Cotton Bowl matchups (1-1). Since joining the SEC, Texas A&M is 2-8 against Alabama. The Aggies won their first matchup as conference foes in 2012 as Johnny Manziel burst onto the scene. The Tide rolled to eight straight before A&M coach Jimbo Fisher became the first Nick Saban assistant to beat him in 2021. Alabama took this year’s contest and pushed the Tide’s record to 12-3 against the Aggies.

The Alabama Crimson Tide got their revenge over Texas A&M in the form of a 24-20 win. Even with the win over Texas A&M, the Crimson Tide and Aggies’ seasons are not what each program expected. Alabama has lost two games and will not represent the SEC West in the SEC Championship Game for the first time since 2019, and Texas A&M will be watching the postseason from the couch at 4-8.

Alabama knocked off Auburn in the Iron Bowl last weekend and secured another ten-win season. They sit sixth in the College Football Playoff rankings and will need lots of chaos to make it to the final four, but a New Year’s Six Bowl is in play. 

Texas A&M upended LSU in a massive upset that sent the Tigers from fifth to 14th in the CFP rankings. Texas A&M is done for the season and will wait to see which players decide to try the NCAA Transfer Portal or stick around.
