It’s a pretty common occurrence in college football — schedule teams that you know you can beat. They all do it, year in and year out. But many teams have that luxury.
Take, for instance, Texas A&M. The Aggies play in arguably the toughest conference in all of football — the Southeastern Conference. So their non-conference schedule this season includes Lamar, Rice, SMU and University of Louisiana-Monroe. The reason is because their conference schedule includes LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, Missouri and Ole Miss.
