Texas A&M Football Stakes Claim to More Championships

Updated: Sunday, September 9 2012, 12:06 AM CDT
It will be a historic Saturday in College Station as the Aggies host Florida in the program's first ever SEC game. But even before the teams take the field, Texas A&M has already made some history, or at least re-written some.

Prior to this week, the Aggies' championship wall at Kyle Field listed only 18 conference titles and one national title (1939). The Aggies have added national titles from 1919 and 1927, as well as conference championships from 1997 and 2010.

According to the NCAA website, Texas A&M is listed on its football championship history in 1919 and 1939. But in 1927, only Illinois and Yale are mentioned as champions.

However, according to the 2012 Football Bowl Subdivision record book, the Aggies are listed as national champions in 1919, 1939, and also 1927 - alongside four other schools.

What about those new Big 12 titles in '97 and 2010? In '97, the Aggies won the south division but lost to Nebraska 54-15 in the conference title game. In 2010, A&M finished in a three-way tie for first place in the south with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, but did not play in the conference championship. Oklahoma did as a result of the tiebreaker.

In response to our inquiry, Big 12 Assistant Commissioner Bob Burda confirmed A&M did receive a champions trophy in both '97 and 2010 for winning its division.
