BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION--After concluding an 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 ranking is Texas A&M’s second top-5 finish since joining the SEC in 2012 and marks third time in his career that head coach Jimbo Fisher has finished inside the top five.

The Aggies open the 2021 season on Saturday, Sept. 4 against Kent State at Kyle Field and season tickets are on sale now.
