COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — With Texas A&M's date against No. 1 Clemson looming next week, it would have been easy for the Aggies to take 33½-point underdog Texas State lightly.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — The 12th-ranked Texas A&M Aggies insist they're not looking past 33 1/2-point underdog Texas State in Thursday's opener. Next up is top-ranked Clemson.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Trayveon Williams strolled around the field, his white pants covered in dirt and grass stains, his Gator Bowl hat turned sideways and his MVP trophy secured tightly in his left hand.
He posed for pictures, hugged teammates and friends, and blew kisses to the crowd.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher has dozens of players on his roster without a bowl victory.
Most of them, actually.
Fisher has a chance in his first season with the Aggies to show many of them what it's like to end the year celebrating on the field with a trophy. No. 21 Texas A&M (8-4) will try to end a three-game bowl losing streak when it plays North Carolina State (9-3) in the Gator Bowl on Monday night.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — When Texas A&M entered the Southeastern Conference in 2012 and its almost 100-year series against Texas ended, it looked as if the Aggies' matchup with LSU might become a big rivalry.
Not so much so far. LSU has dominated since then, winning all six meetings with Texas A&M.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher didn't spend much time celebrating his team's blowout win over UAB on Saturday night before talking about how the Aggies must improve next week if they hope to upset No. 10 LSU.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Normally a break from Southeastern Conference play with a game against a Conference USA team might be seen as a nice breather for Texas A&M before the Aggies wrap up the regular season by hosting No. 10 LSU on Nov. 24.
However, Saturday's game against UAB (9-1) doesn't fall into that category. The Blazers have won a school-record eight straight games and clinched their first C-USA West Division title with an overtime win against Southern Miss last week.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — After Kellen Mond turned the ball over on Texas A&M's first two drives of the second half on Saturday against Mississippi, coach Jimbo Fisher thought about making a quarterback change.
But after looking into Mond's eyes, something told him that he would bounce back. So, he stuck with him and the sophomore rebounded to lead the Aggies to four scoring drives after his errors to give Texas A&M a 38-24 win.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — After losing two straight games following a three-game winning streak, Texas A&M will try to finish better on Saturday against Mississippi.
The Aggies (5-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) have been outscored 28-0 in the fourth quarter of losses at Mississippi State and Auburn.
"It disappoints me like it does everyone else in that you know that you're very close," coach Jimbo Fisher said.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — A national championship was on the line the last time Jimbo Fisher and Gus Malzahn stalked opposing sidelines.
This time, they'll settle for forging a strong November.
Fisher and No. 25 Texas A&M (5-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) hope to rebound Saturday against Auburn (5-3, 2-3) and Malzahn, who's trying to salvage a disappointing season.
For a second straight year, Florida State's bowl streak is very much in doubt.
The Seminoles played in a bowl for a 36th straight season last year, but only after beating Louisiana-Monroe in a rescheduled game that enabled Florida State to finish the regular season at 6-6. That game took place after coach Jimbo Fisher had already left for Texas A&M.
Texas A&M has won three straight games to quickly become a factor in the Southeastern Conference Western Division under first-year coach Jimbo Fisher.
Now the Aggies on Saturday must face one of the league's best defenses in Mississippi State.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond and South Carolina signal-caller Jake Bentley know they've got room to improve midway through their seasons.
When the 22nd-ranked Aggies play at the Gamecocks on Saturday, the game could tell a lot about which one takes a step forward.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Jimbo Fisher has his first signature victory at Texas A&M. It took a little extra time to earn it.
Trayveon Williams twisted into the end zone on a 10-yard run in overtime to give the Aggies a wild 20-14 victory over No. 13 Kentucky on Saturday night.
Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher and Kentucky counterpart Mark Stoops have history. One with closer ties than the football series between the schools.
The Aggies and Wildcats have met just twice on the gridiron — the last time was 65 years ago.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jimbo Fisher got his first Southeastern Conference victory at Texas A&M. He was still far from happy with the performance.
Jashaun Corbin had the first 100-yard kickoff return to start a game for Texas A&M since 1994 and Trayveon Williams ran for 153 yards with two touchdowns, but the Aggies needed a late interception to seal a 24-17 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M has already played — and lost — to No. 1 and No. 2 in the opening month of coach Jimbo Fisher's first season.
Still, maybe there is something that the Aggies can take out of those games against potential playoff teams.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The parade of former Nick Saban assistants trying to beat their old boss and Alabama continues.
Next contestant: Billy Napier.
Napier and Louisiana-Lafayette (1-2) take on the top-ranked Crimson Tide (4-0) Saturday as nearly seven-touchdown underdogs .
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — It has become a regular thing for Alabama coach Nick Saban to stalk the sideline opposite one of his former pupils.
Beating them has certainly been routine.
Saban and the top-ranked Crimson Tide face another former acolyte Saturday when Jimbo Fisher brings his 22nd-ranked Texas A&M Aggies (2-1, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) into Bryant-Denny Stadium.
For the second straight year, Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher will meet in a mentor-mentee matchup.
All signs point toward Saban teaching him another lesson when top-ranked Alabama hosts 22nd-ranked Texas A&M on Saturday in one of two games between Top 25 teams. The other has No. 7 Stanford at No. 20 Oregon.
No. 22 Texas A&M (2-1, 0-0 SEC) at No. 1 Alabama (3-0, 1-0), 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
Line: Alabama by 27.
Series record: Alabama leads 8-2.
WHAT'S AT STAKE?
Alabama wants to avoid an early stumble, having outscored its first three opponents by a combined 170-28. The Aggies nearly pulled off an upset of No. 3 Clemson and hope to make a statement in coach Jimbo Fisher's first SEC game.
Here are some things to watch during the fourth week of the Southeastern Conference football season:
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — In his first year at Texas A&M, one of the things coach Jimbo Fisher has enjoyed most is watching sophomore quarterback Kellen Mond grow and develop from week to week.
"It's just fun to watch him," Fisher said. "The questions he asks, the thoughts he has and ... he's really fun right now and he's learning."
Mond had another big game on Saturday night, running for two touchdowns and throwing for a third to give Texas A&M a 48-10 win over Louisiana-Monroe.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M doesn't have a lot of time to worry about its loss to No. 2 Clemson with just one game before the Aggies travel to face top-ranked Alabama.
First, they host Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday with a chance to work on some things before that Sept. 22 trip to Tuscaloosa.
A couple of early conference games are the only ones matching ranked teams in week two of the college football season.
No. 3 Georgia faces what could be its toughest SEC East test when it goes to newly ranked and No. 24 South Carolina. In the Pac-12, No. 17 Southern California goes to No. 10 Stanford in a rematch of the conference title game last season.
No. 2 Clemson (1-0) at Texas A&M (1-0), Saturday, 7:05 p.m. ET (ESPN).
Things to watch in the Atlantic Coast Conference in Week 2:
The first big test of the Jimbo Fisher era at Texas A&M is coming to Kyle Field this week, and it is a familiar foe for the Aggies new coach.
No. 2 Clemson and Dabo Swinney visit College Station, Texas, on Saturday. Max Olson of the Athletic joins AP's Ralph Russo on the Top 25 College Football Podcast to preview Clemson-A&M and the rest of week two, including an interesting matchup for Nebraska against Colorado.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A new stand-alone football facility is a major facet of a fundraising campaign for Florida State University's athletic program.
University President John Thrasher announced plans for the $100 million Unconquered Campaign on Sunday at Doak Campbell Stadium.
The major component is a $60 million football operations center that will be built adjacent to the practice fields and indoor complex.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — If 36-year-old Clark Lea had butterflies calling signals during his first game ever as a defensive coordinator, it wasn't apparent to his boss, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly.
"You don't know if a bomb has gone off in the coach's box because he has such a calm demeanor at all times," Kelly said Sunday, a day after No. 12 Notre Dame's 24-17 victory over No. 14 Michigan. "As you know, he very stable in all situations. It makes it very easy to work with Clark in communication."
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Coach Jimbo Fisher has preached about the importance of explosive plays since he took over at Texas A&M.
On Thursday night, Trayveon Williams gave his new coach exactly that when he ran 73 yards for a touchdown on the team's third offensive play to get things going in what ended as a 59-7 rout of Northwestern State in Fisher's debut at the school.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Coach Jimbo Fisher makes his debut at Texas A&M on Thursday night against Northwestern State in what will be his team's only tuneup before a huge test against second-ranked Clemson.
Fisher left Florida State for a 10-year, $75 million contract with the Aggies that comes with the expectation that he'll elevate Texas A&M into college football's elite.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — New Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said Thursday his program will be "very open" to any inquiry into allegations of possible NCAA violations, but he is confident in how things have been handled since he arrived from Florida State.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — All those zeroes in Jimbo Fisher's new contract hang over the coach like a huge cloud.
Texas A&M handed Fisher a 10-year, $75 million contract to leave Florida State after Kevin Sumlin was fired last year. Aggie fans believe that's 75 million reasons why he should be the one to deliver their first national title since 1939.
He knew what the expectations were before the ink was dry on the deal. And he insists he isn't daunted by them.
