The Texas A&M football program doesn’t have a whole lot to brag about these days. The Aggies are in fourth place in the SEC West and have already fired their coach as they head toward their 11th straight season without earning double-digit wins. 

But A&M did find something to brag about after beating Abilene Christian on Saturday. The school posted on social media that the win was its 17th straight against opponents from Texas since the start of the 2012 season. Sounds pretty impressive, right? Texas is the most football-mad state in the country and home to some great college programs. 

But A&M’s fun fact isn’t as noteworthy as it might seem. Of those 17 wins, eight have come against FCS opponents (Sam Houston State, Lamar, Prairie View A&M and Abilene Christian). None of the other teams included in the stat (SMU, Rice, UTSA, UTEP and Texas State) are in Power 5 conferences. 

Fans were quick to call out the Aggies for it:

Cutting off the stat in 2012 is a shrewd move by the Aggies. That’s the year that they moved from the Big 12 to the SEC. Their last game against an in-state opponent before the conference switch was a home loss to their biggest rival, Texas. Since then, A&M hasn’t played a single game against a power-conference team from its home state. That’ll change next year, though, when Texas moves to the SEC and renews its rivalry with A&M.
